This first ticket stub is from the 1995-96 season, when the Red Wings were celebrating their 70th anniversary. The team had never produced tickets with unique designs before, opting instead for a standard design for every game. I happened to attend a lot of games that year, and loved getting the tickets with the different players. It was the first time I'd ever really noticed the tickets, since it was the first time they were done with some flair. Here's the ticket from the Wings' only home date against Toronto that season, picturing Gordie Howe (who I'm named after).
