This extraordinary collection features either a full ticket or ticket stub from EVERY All-Star Game ever played between the years 1933 and 2014. Ideally, every ticket has been graded by PSA, with the set officially recognized as #4 on the PSA Set Registry. A total of eight-five tickets are represented here, including separate tickets for each of the two games held during the four-year span 1959 and 1962. Nineteen of the tickets are full examples (duly noted in our listing), while three (1950, 1966, and 1989) are qualified as "MK." This is the first complete run of All-Star Game tickets we have ever offered and, as evidenced by its top-five ranking in the PSA Set Registry, it is also one of the finest ever assembled. It should be noted the following four ticket grades are recognized as "Population 1" in the PSA registry: 1940 (VG-EX 4); 1946 (EX-MT 6); 1949 (EX 5); and 1957 (EX-MT 6). The collection, inventoried by grade, is as follows: MINT 9 (1 total): 2014 (full ticket); NM-MT 8 (5 total): 1991, 1994, 2008 (full ticket), 2011 (full ticket), and 2013 (full ticket); NM 7 (6 total): 1995 (full ticket), 1996 (full ticket), 2004 (full ticket), 2006 (full ticket), 2009 (full ticket), and 2010 (full ticket); EX-MT 6 (8 total): 1936, 1938, 1946, 1957, 1983, 1992, 2001 (full ticket), and 2005 (full ticket); EX 5 (13 total): 1935, 1942, 1948, 1949, 1953, 1959 (West - Los Angeles), 1963, 1975, 1981, 1988, 1990, 1993 (full ticket), and 1997 (full ticket); VG-EX 4 (25 total): 1933, 1940, 1943, 1947, 1951, 1959 (East - Pittsburgh), 1960 (West – Kansas City), 1961 (East - Boston), 1961 (West - San Francisco), 1962 (East – Washington), 1968, 1971, 1976, 1977, 1978, 1979, 1980, 1986, 1989 (MK), 1998, 1999, 2000 (full ticket), 2002 (full ticket), 2003 (full ticket), and 2012 (full ticket); VG 3 (14 total): 1939, 1941, 1944, 1952, 1956, 1958, 1964, 1966 (MK), 1972, 1973, 1974, 1985, 1987, and 2007 (full ticket); GOOD 2 (6): 1950 (MK), 1954, 1955, 1965, 1970, and 1984; FAIR 1.5 (2 total): 1960 (East - New York) and 1982; AUTHENTIC (5 total): 1934, 1937, 1962 (West - Chicago), 1967, and 1969. This is a superb compilation of tickets from the midsummer classic, assembled over a period of several years by an extremely dedicated collector. It would be a worthy addition to even the most advanced collection! Total: 85 graded tickets. Reserve $10,000. Estimate (open).
