| Collector F.A.Q.s
One of the hottest collectible items is the boxing ticket. It is the ticket, after all, that often best evokes that sense of what is was like when the tension and anticipation of the event was at its peak. It is the last thing you look at before you go inside. Many of the older tickets and even the newer large illustrated tickets from major casino fights are hard to find, great to look at, and on everybody's want list. Even if you didn't go, you want the ticket.

6) Where does the information about these tickets come from?
The primary source of information is, of course, the ticket itself. Whether or not a specific bout took place, the ticket shows the promotion of the event proceeded to point of printing tickets. The main secondary source throughout the collection has been boxrec.com the excellent website database of professional boxing records. The basic information presented by the boxing historians at Boxing Records provided much of the detail of the results summarized and the undercards specified. To establish consistency throughout the collection, the names of boxers and the descriptions of weight classes, championships, and most locations & venues used by Boxing Records have been followed on this site. The superb boxing site Cyberboxingzone.com was also quite useful, especially in tracking the amateur careers and exhibition appearances of major boxers. Much of the material on Golden Gloves and other major amateur tournaments came from organizational website historical notes, and many other small details throughout the collection were cleared up, one would hope, through standard internet research. Though all attempts have been made to proofread and compile this information correctly, any mistakes are those of the editor, not the collector or the sources cited here. Should anyone note errors or inconsistencies in this material, please contact the editor through email@example.com so corrections might be made.
7) How were these tickets scanned?
Scans were obtained using an Epson Perfection V500Photo scanner in 24-bit color at 300 dpi, and had the foreground filled with white to blend with the web site background.
