A few weeks ago I did a post about the 1937 “World Series of Basketball” staged between the New York Rens and the Oshkosh All Stars in and around Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

You may recall that some of the games took place in the University Fieldhouse of the University of Wisconsin.

1937 Rens vs. Oshkosh Game Ticket

A ticket stub from a historically important 1937 game between the New York Rens and the Oshkosh All Stars.

Well, I wanted to share with you a ticket stub from that series of games.

Here it is.

Sometimes it’s really cool to see an actual artifact from something that was previously only research.

Kinda makes it real.

Like meeting a famous person.

It makes history now.

It’s one of the reasons I’m developing a Black Fives Era museum exhibit and historical archive.
