Rare, high-grade ticket stub from Wilt Chamberlain’s 100
Point game on March 2, 1962. Graded VG 3 by PSA (submitted by Lelands). This is
one of only 14 examples of this ticket stub listed in the PSA Population.
Only three are graded at this level, with just one graded higher.
population report is not surprising, as only 4,124 fans attended the game.
Given their rarity, it appears few stubs were saved despite Chamberlain's
record-setting performance. This is just the second we have ever offered. Not
surprisingly, the ticket originates from the same source as the first we sold,
which was just featured in our recent MINT 25 auction. Our consignor attended
the game with his parents and in addition to saving two ticket stubs, he also
saved a program from the game, which was signed by Chamberlain on that day. The
signed program and one of the ticket stubs (also graded VG 3 by PSA) appeared
as Lot 3 in the MINT 25 auction, realizing a final price of $137,521.
Wilt Chamberlain’s 100-Point game is still talked about
today as the greatest feat ever performed on the hardwood, sometimes in
mythical tones when one considers that the three-point line wasn’t adopted by
the NBA until 1979. This ticket stub commemorates that historic achievement and
represents what many consider the most significant basketball ticket in the
hobby. A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to obtain one of the highest-graded examples of this iconic relic on the 60th anniversary of the historic event. The ticket stub measures 1.75x1.5".
