As a movie lover, I’ve collected a lot of stuff over the years. I have an old 16mm projector reel sitting on my windowsill. I’ve got a prop sword from the movie Gymkata. I understand the urge to want to memorialize great movies and great moviegoing experiences (like Gymkata). I’ve even saved a few of my ticket stubs over the years. But I’ve never had the slightest urge to buy someone else’s ticket stub to a movie I didn’t see. The thought never even occurred to me.
This is why I will never be an eBay entrepreneur. Because many people on eBay have thought about this, and then put ticket stubs up for sale on the auction site. Above, I’ve collected just a small sample of the ones that are available right now, arranged in order of price. You will not believe what people are asking for the last couple. Good luck with that, eBay sellers! I admire your optimism. I want to live in a world where people can afford to spend hundreds of dollars on old movie ticket stubs.
If you’re interested in purchasing any of these (that Spun ticket stub looks mighty enticing, I know) just go to eBay and type in the title and “movie ticket”; you’ll find what you’re looking for and more. And although I’ve listed all the asking prices, some sellers are willing to hear lower offers, so you can try bidding them down if, say, you’re really invested in owning a piece of Inventing the Abbotts history. Surely someone out there feels that way. And who am I to judge? I own a Gymkata sword.
