    Description

    World's Columbian Exposition: Rare Ticket for The Ferris Wheel. Always the greatest demand for a ticket, even though it is not the rarest in the marketplace. Perhaps 25-30 are known of the most famous attraction on The Midway, George Ferris' great invention. This ticket is in mint condition, lightly hinged at one time but clearly an unused ticket when saved long ago. In recent years, we have seen two public sales, one a tattered barely identifiable ticket for $900 and a nice specimen for $1500. We have recorded no sales in 2007-2008. Concession 58, The Ferris Wheel, One Ride, #450466. Doolin #28. From the collection of Norm Bolotin.
