1946 Opening Day Ticket Stub

This commemorative ticket stub would have admitted one patron to Borchert Field on Opening Day in 1946.

The ticket has faded somewhat, and has suffered significant paper loss on the reverse, but the graphic design is strong and clear. I love the bold graphic of Owgust, the Brews' mascot, going up for a fly ball.

The brush-stroke wordmark and leaping Owgust were also used on the cover of the 1944 programs and pocket schedules:

The large graphic on the 1946 ticket is unlike those used on the Opening Day commemorative tickets from the three previous seasons, which featured a full-body Owgust:

I love the big, bold graphics of this 1946 stub. It was obviously well-loved, pasted into a scrapbook as a souvenir of the Brews' 1946 opener.
