Is Ticket Collecting Getting More Respect?

A long time ago it seemed like event tickets for almost anything (especially the vintage concert events of the 1960s-70s) could be picked up for such a cheap price - below a dollar in many cases.

However, now it seems many of them being sold for a few dollars or even a lot more.

One could argue that inflation is the reason for the bump in price, but in a way doesn't it seem like they are getting more desirable appeal ever since many big outlets like Ticketmaster are now abandoning the printing of these things?

I'm also seeing more tickets being submitted through PSA.

What are your thoughts?

    A lot of tickets are being submitted to Beckett as well. They have been swamped as their 45 day turnaround has now turned into 70 day turnarounds because they can't keep up.

    Terry Bradshaw was AMAZING!!

    Its hard to find random event tickets that aren't being sold as such anymore too. Used to be someone would toss up a stub or a lot and have no clue what happened on those days and they didn't worry about it Now, every little thing gets mentioned for fear 35 cents is left on the table!

    Player Y's pitching debut after rehab stint or Player X's first career sacrifice fly. Not to mention you see a lot of "Garvey & Smith HR, Seaver had 3 Ks" type of descriptions.

    I collect Steve Garvey, Dodgers and signed cards. Collector since 1978.
