This grouping of vintage Kentucky Derby admission tickets presents these keepsakes in their original unused condition — a rarely found collector's treasure. Dating back more than 80 years the tickets are a visual history of Thoroughbred racing’s annual Run for the Roses. The collection comprises six full and complete Churchill Downs Grandstand and Clubhouse Admission tickets, as well as a bonus 1955 return entry ticket.
The winning horses associated with the tickets include: Lawrin - 1938; Gallahadion - 1940; Swaps - 1955; Tim Tam - 1958, Tomy Lee - 1959, and Gato Del Sol - 1982. Their associated connections feature some of the biggest names in racing history who excelled on the First Saturday in May including jockeys Eddie Arcaro and Bill Shoemaker, trainer Ben A. Jones, and the famed Calumet Farm. A perfect offering to help launch a Derby collection or add to an existing one.
