Pair of Fenway Park season passes issued to Harry Stovey to gain admission to the park for 1932 and 1933.  Both passes appear in strong condition, though both appear to be slightly hand-cut at the edges and corners.  These passes were part of a larger collection of items purchased from the Stovey family by Baltimore Orioles broadcaster and collector Ted Patterson; we sold the majority of his Stovey items in our Fall, 2018 auction.  Ted kept all his Stovey items in his collection stored in a single box (or so we thought), which contained a number of season and lifetime passes, some cabinet photos, medals, and correspondence.  We stumbled across this pair of passes in a shoebox of Ted's containing various ticket stubs that we are organizing for an upcoming auction.  Stovey was, of course, one of the greats of the 19th Century, still a candidate for eventual Hall of Fame induction.  After retiring from baseball he resumed using his given name, Harry Stow, and became a police officer in New Before, MA until 1923.  By 1932 he was well into his 70s, and his various passes were still bestowed to him under his baseball name, Harry Stovey.  Two passes total.
