Bob Dylan 1966 Ticket Stub Sells For 324 Times Its Original Price
A Bob Dylan concert stub, which was used at a 1966 show at the YM - YWCA Auditorium in Ottawa, Canada, sold for $1,134.99 on online auctioning site eBay.
The sale price is 324 times higher than the purchase price of the ticket in 1966 - that is, $3.50. The Saturday night ticket stub dated February 19, 1966 was listed to be in "amazing" shape with the rip clearing the perforation.
On the night, Dylan split the Saturday night event into two sets; the first was acoustic, while the second set was on electric guitar fronting Toronto band, the Hawks. The Hawks went on to become the Band.
The sale included a page of the Febreuary 21, 1966 Ottawa Journal newspaper with a headline that announced "Singing Crusader Casts Spell In Ottawa." Also included was a 1986 Canadian mono copy of Dylan's album, Freewheelin'.
