Default Evel Knievel Snake River Jump Ticket from SK w/ scan

I thought I'd share what SportKings sent me as an "Admit One" ticket redemption...

It's a full, appears to be unused, ticket from the 1974 Snake River Canyon Jump by Evel Knievel! The ticket itself measures 3.5 inches by 9 inches. The custom made card that SK included behind it measures 6.5 by 9 inches.

Does anyone else think this is cool, or am I just really weird?

Thanks for looking,

Matt

thats kinda cool. would be a lot better if it was autographed though. I'm like you I guess, just have a thing for random stuff like that.

That is were a cut auto would come in handy. When the subject is actually dead. Not like some cut auto's of guys who are alive. That is an awesome card. Evil Knevil- American Icon!! Atleast to me.

I'll be keeping it. I'm sort of a fan of SportKings, and all of their cards.

Peter,

I don't think you're hijacking my post, and thanks for the question.

I haven't received them back yet. SK told me that they'd do their best to make them look the best they can, so as soon as I receive them, I'll post scans and declare the winners.

Matt

Evil ticket you have is very cool though
