The world is changing, my friend.  At some point last century, they removed all the hitching posts from downtown streets, and I am sure there were complaints aplenty that there was no place to tie up one's horse.

Hundreds of dollars?

Here's an unlocked Galaxy S4 (yes, an old phone, circa 2013/2014) for $70.  I mean, it's really old by today's standards, but if all you want to do is make phone calls and get into the FF, then it'll work just fine.  Buy it, put your sim in it, and it'll work just like 'ol flippy.

Or better yet, don't even put a sim in it. Download the tickets, charge the phone and bring it in.

Pull up the tickets on your phone at home. Take a picture of the ticket on your phone with a 35mm camera. Take the film to Walgreens to get it developed. When it's ready in a week, you have a ticket you can put in your pocket.

I don't know why you all think this is so hard.

Many of the season ticket holders, who prefer the printed tickets are long-time season ticket holders. My season tickets go back to the 55-56 season.

I think MU made a mistake saying you had to pay $100 for a printed ticket book. They just should of said there would be no printed ticket books, but you could pick up printed tickets if you wanted them. They made me mad for no reason at all. It is poor business to piss off your customers.

I would say on the flip side who likes to save a printed ticket as a keepsake was a nice move by Marquette. It makes some not  get mad about not having the chance for printed tickets.

I actually started going to games in 1962. My father had 10 season tickets starting with the 55-56 season. My dad wanted me to pay for two season tickets I was using. I said okay, but I wanted the tickets in my name. Two tickets (I wanted to take my girlfriend to games) were transferred to me in 1969, when I was 17 years old. When Marquette went to reseating (1986?) you were allowed to transfer only at that time tickets between family members. I asked my dad to trade tickets with me, with the promise he could still use the 1955-56 tickets and I would continue to use the 1969 tickets.This allowed me to keep the1955-56 tickets he was using, when he passed away in 2002. The tickets going back to 1969, which were in his name and being used by me were not renewed.

What a treasure trove of MU history you and your family have seen.
