I'm not sure those World Series tickets, for Games 1, 2, 6, and 7, are quite right. Wasn't '94 a year for the NL team to have home-field advantage (which was then alternating between leagues?)?

Pretty nice to make 26 bucks on obsolete ticket stubs that have zero historic value. heh Maybe I'll sell mine from 06?

My Dad was able to get hold of a bottle of the Champaign that would have been used to celebrate the Cubs pennant victory in 1984, had there ever been such a celebration. He likes to keep it in his wine rack and pull it out to show to Cub fans that he invites for dinner. (On the label, it has the Cubs logo with "1984 National League Champions"). I wonder what that would fetch on ebay?

I have been in Champaign but have never drank Champaign.

I think you're right. The AL had homefield advantage on the odd numbered years.

Why is this an odd item? But for the strike, the White Sox would have been in the World Series.

Somewhere in my boxes of Sox stuff, I have a sheet of 1967 & 1972 World Series White Sox tickets.

These tickets have been offered before. I bought a pair off eBay 5-6 years ago.

Yes, they have no real value, but we Sox Fans believe 1994 was our year. I wanted Sox World Series tickets from what I feared would be the closest the team would ever come to a world championship in my lifetime.

Then 2005 happened...

:cool:

The season ticket holder gift that year (apparently meant to be a peace offering for the strike) was tickets to the playoffs and World Series. I still have mine. Kind of painful to look at.

Or they could have been swept in three straight by the Yankees in the first round of the playoffs (NYY had a better record at the time too).

I loved that '94 Sox team, but I can't stand people who continually talk about the Sox vs. Expos World Series like it was a foregone conclusion. There were still 50+ games of baseball to be played. It is even entirely possible that Cleveland would have won the Central and Baltimore would have won the Wild Card.

Forget '94 and revel in the glory of 2005.

Nope. They had it in even-numbered years.

'95, '99 - Braves
'96, '98, '00 - Yankees
'97 - Marlins
'01 - Diamondbacks
'02 - Angels
