Oct 19, 1977 Greenville SC stub
May 07, 2012 5:58:16 PM UTC Post #1

I want to start by pleading for no judgements for what I'm about to ask. The first concert I ever attended was the last Lynyrd Skynyrd show before the deaths of Ronnie, Steve and Cassie. I was 13 years old and my sisters and I had a yard sale to raise the money to go. We had a blast and I have some awesome but fading memories of a great show (it WAS 35 years ago.) Unfortunately, my family has hit upon some hard times, and I have a friend who would like to buy my ticket stub. I've been researching, but since there were only so many of these and most who had them either don't want to part with them or have lost them, so I have no idea how much to ask for it. Does anyone know the value? My Mom also has the Greenville Newspaper that came out announcing the crash and she said she would give me that as well. Any help with this would be appreciated.

@SCgal: I will say that holding a ticket stub from the last concert of the 70's Skynyrd lineup is priceless. You can't put a price on something like that since there aren't any more like it. Tough times come and go in each of our lives. Remember the lyrics from Ronnie in Simple Man "...troubles will come and they will pass." Years ago I used to have all of my concert ticket stubs stashed. I either pitched them or they got lost in a move at some point. Now I wish that I would have kept the stubs. Like most Skynyrd fans, I also wish that I would have gone to see them on 10-19-77 since I was living in Charleston, SC at the time. I heard of those that had tickets to the Baton Rouge concert on 10-21-77 were able to redeem them later on for a Skynyrd concert without having to pay for a seat. I suggest that you keep the ticket and the newspaper article and share this story with family and frynds years to come. You'll be glad you did - and bummed if you don't. If you are set on selling it, get it appraised by an authentic appraiser. Go online to the Internet and do some research. You could list it on Ebay or Craigslist. Trust me, there are people out there that would pay big bucks for it at least a couple thousand bucks. Don't settle on what your friend might be telling you.

I have the october 19 ticket stub as well as tickets from little rock ark,columbus ohio,and atlanta,from 1977,framed with my autographed street survivors 8-track,depending on how bad you need the money i would tell your friend that $500 is my asking price,depending what condition it is in,but there no way you should go below $400,you have a valuable piece of rock n roll history in your possession.

Thanks Stu Bro and ledzep4ever. I'm still mulling over selling it to my friend. Being at that show is a great memory that I share with my sisters. My friend that is interested in the ticket is a HUGE fan...even has a giant tattoo of Ronnie on his arm. "Troubles will come, and they will pass"...is true. The financial pickle I found myself in is already improving. Now I need to weigh the value of the ticket stub for me against my friend's desire to own it.
