Sabre Tickets from Season Number One

Will working on this Sabres 40th Anniversary exhibit installation we have had to dig through the archives. Here are some first season ticket stubs 1970-71 that we thought we would share. Not as fancy as they are now, and they only came in two colors- red and green- and we liked it that way... just a like a cold Utica Club.

We are looking to aquire a ticket from every Sabres home game from the last 40 years and the collection is close. See our list for tickets we need on the main Buffalo Hockey Experience + Museum website.
