1968 All-Star Game Program w/Ticket Stub and Two Vintage Astrodome Related Brochures
In 1968, baseball had moved into the new era (albeit controversial) with the first All-Star game to be played inside and on turf. The NL defeated the AL 1-0 with Willie Mays scoring the winning run. This game also marked the last All-Star appearance of Yankee legend Mickey Mantle. Offered from the game is the official program in Near Mint condition with a ticket stub stapled on the front as a prized trophy. As a bonus and worth the price of admission, are two brochures (of the era). They include Astroworld and Astrodomain which includes all the attractions in and around the Astrodome.
Frank Rinella and Pittsburgh Post Gazette sportswriter Al Abrams shared a common bond in their love of sports. It was Abrams who was a newspaper lifer. After joining the Post Gazette in 1926, Abrams was the paper’s sports editor from 1947 to 1974.
