Miller: Do you have any 70s or 80s Twins ticket stubs?
Phil Miller kicks off his baseball blog with a bizarre story about a White Sox fan who goes to TwinsFest every year to buy old Minnesota Twins ticket stubs - but only specific ones.
Swann became a big fan of Carlton Fisk when the Hall of Fame catcher played for the White Sox, and soon began collecting a lot of Fisk memorabilia. He's got programs, bats, autographs, baseball cards -- all the usual stuff. But about a decade ago, he embarked upon a project that only a fan could understand. He decided to collect a ticket stub to every game Fisk ever played.
A lot of collectors focus on objects that grow in value as they get older; baseball cards from decades, for instance, can be pretty valuable. But tickets stubs? Gathered in a collection as specific as this one? Not so much.

I don't know about baseball, but I still have an old "WrestleRock '86" stub from the AWA days hanging around. Does that count?Mastermind of the "Free Bert" sign.
