National Ticket Company’s first learned about TicketStubCollection.com when founder Russ Havens contacted Chris Conroy, Director, Marketing & Advertising for National Ticket Company, inquiring about old tickets they might have lying around the office. “It was a no-brainer from the moment we started talking. National Ticket is one of the original ticket printing companies, so of course we were going to have some very unique tickets we could upload to their site,” said Conroy.
When recently interviewed by Paul Lukas of ESPNConversations, Russ Havens, founder of TicketStubCollection.com said of his new site, "Everyone loves memories, and stubs are basically time-stamped keepsakes that connect us with those memories." Havens also said, "Tearing the ticket adds to the patina of it. It shows use, like a mark on a game-worn jersey."
Two of Conroy’s favorite tickets they have uploaded to TicketStubCollection.com are the 1969 Miss America Atlantic City Pageant Parade and the 1971 Joe Frazier v. Muhammad Ali at Long Island Arena. “These are classic, unforgettable events that make up a rich part of our American entertainment history. We are thrilled to be part of helping preserve these tickets and memories,” Conroy adds. And being a Phillies fan, Conroy hopes that one of the next tickets someone can upload to TicketStubCollection.com is a Phillies 2010 World Series Championship ticket.
