Today's Old School Design takes a look at a classic World Series ticket design from the 1976 World Series in Cincinnati. The year was 1976 and the Big Red Machine was in full swing. Pete Rose, Johnny Bench, Joe Morgan, Dave Concepcion, Ken Griffey, George Foster and Tony Perez were some of the famous names on the Big Red Machine.
The Reds were the defending World Series champions and faced off against the New York Yankees. The 1976 World Series only went four games, as the Reds pulled off a 4 game sweep of Thurman Munson and the New York Yankees.
This ticket stub is a classic example of 1970's graphic design. The 76 logo is perfectly stylized for the design styles of the time. The font used for the words World Series and N.L. vs. A.L. are also 70's classic type styles.
The ticket features an image of the World Championship trophy and the Reds logo featuring Mr. Red. This ticket stub was for Game 2 of the Series at Riverfront Stadium in Cincinnati. The price for a Loge Box seat at this historical game was only $15.00. Wouldn't you love to hop back in time and lay down a quick $15.00 to witness an event like that?
