Collecting match tickets has become very popular over the last couple of decades.  Some people were doing it long before then, but it tended to be retaining the slips of paper that gave you entry to the matches you attended as a memento of the game.  Now it is big business with collectors amassing large numbers of tickets from matches old and new

Here are some from the 1950s and 1960s.  Some retrieved from the MEHSTG archive, some we have found and some that have been forwarded to us …
