Two ticket stubs from adjacent seats at the Ohio Stadium Dedication on October 21, 1922. After winning their first games at their new home, Ohio State hosted archrival Michigan for the ceremonial dedication game. Over 72,000 were on hand but perhaps the focus was too much on the stadium and not the play on the field. Michigan shutout the Buckeyes, 19-0.
Ohio Stadium has turned into one of the greatest venues in college football history. Over 12,000 individuals helped raise over one million dollars towards the $1.5M project. On this Saturday in 1922, it was a cause for celebration as the dream was achieved. As The Lantern put it, "All walks of life were represented when leaders came from far and near to pay their respects to The Ohio State University's new athletic plant."
These ticket stubs were glued together by the original owner and pasted into a scrapbook. They were successfully removed from the scrapbook, but remain glued together in a way that will look beautifully displayed.
