I thought I'd see if any were available and a quick Ebay search found a seller that just listed all six of the Ernie cards.
It was nice that I could get them all at once.
It was not nice that the seller was a bit delusional.
It was nice that the seller was not completely insane.
Here's the scoop--the seller listed the tickets as an auction with a Buy It Now option. And the BIN price--a mere $150! Imagine, for only $25 a piece you can be the proud owner of six tickets to games that were already played.
But then the seller started the auction at $0.99. I was able to win the auction at a price just a tad below the bin price...like $143 below the BIN. They cost me a bit more than a buck each.
These are from Opening Day...you gotta start with Ernie, and game #14...his uniform number
...game 20, Ernie had 7 RBIs on this date in 1969, and game 49, July 14...Ernie's number again
and finally, game 59, August 14, another Ernie 14 (seems like the Cubs started running out of ideas!), and game 76, September 20, the date of his first career home run in 1953.
Six nice tickets to add the the Ernie collection.
And by the way, when the president is from Chicago,
I bet he'd trade the medal for a World Series ring.
