This ticket may look familiar to you all, as 11 days ago I blogged that I had been outbid at an auction for it!
Well, several days after the auction concluded (and after my blog post), I received an e-mail from the seller advising that he had several more of the tickets, from other days of the Games. Would I be interested in purchasing one for the value of my maximum bid? Naturally, I said yes and here we are.
I am thoroughly happy. I now believe that I have all of the standard tickets for Stockholm 1912.
Here they are, the Rio 2016 tickets I have sourced.
The first ticket appears the advance ticket, with the running man displayed as the main picture; the second ticket appears the generic form, with all of the events shown in the main picture, and the details for the athletics event thermally printed on the lower half; and the third ticket appears the 'accreditation required' ticket.
I win more than I lose, so I can't really complain, but I was frustrated to miss out on this 1912 Stockholm one-day reserved seat ticket.
The bidding was furious in the last minute of the auction, with new people entering and the price rising by more than $100.00 in the last seconds.
Let's hope that another arises in the future.
