Absolute rarity this. Season Ticket tags

Anyone got some of these? What were they for? How did you use them what was the point of em etc

 

Were they by any chance for original shareholders?

 

I mean before they gave passes for admittance to the South Stand.

I'm pretty sure that these are the original shareholder match day passes.

 

IIRC these passes admitted the shareholder plus one juvenile, I seem to remember seeing a row of

kids behind the South Stand hoping to be taken in by one of the 'wealthy'

 

When I was a lad (long time ago) the father of one of my mates was friendly with an original shareholder and

if, for any reason, he wasn't going to the game he used to lend him the token.

 

So off we would go with the token securely chained to my mates belt and him threatened with the good hiding

of his life if he lost it.:rolleyes:
