“ As more users adopt digital tickets—MLB expects over 90 percent of fans to use them next season—traditional paper tickets are becoming more valuable as collector’s items. Season ticket holders are apparently leaving paper tickets at home, using their iPhone Passbook version to get into the game so they can preserve the paper ticket in mint condition. Those preferring to use their iPhone to get into games won’t necessarily have to pay collector’s prices for a keepsake, though; memorabilia purveyor That’s My Ticket is now licensed to make framed replica tickets starting at $25.”
Not a joke: with eTicket adoption on the rise, Major League Baseball has started selling licensed, replica, commemorative paper tickets.
