Presented is a ticket proof for the April 12, 1966 opening day ticket at Atlanta Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. The official dedication of the stadium was held in conjunction with the Atlanta Braves vs. Pittsburgh Pirates contest to open the ’66 Major League Baseball season. Atlanta–Fulton County Stadium, often referred to as Fulton County Stadium and originally named Atlanta Stadium, was a multi-purpose stadium originally built to attract an MLB team, and the Milwaukee Braves relocated from Wisconsin to their new southern home that season. The Braves and the expansion Atlanta Falcons of the National Football League shared the venue for 26 years, until the Falcons moved into the newly completed Georgia Dome in 1992. The Braves continued to play at the stadium for another five years, then moved into Turner Field in 1997. The full ticket proof is printed in red and black on white cardstock, and does not have the gate, aisle, row or seat assignments printed. The center of the ticket is a black and white aerial photo of the stadium. The Pirates beat the Braves, 3-2, in the opening day contest. This item has been authenticated and encapsulated by PSA (40915236) and is graded Authentic.
