The Milwaukee Brewers put their “Timeless Tickets” on sale on Tuesday.
The Brew Crew already have some of the most supportive fans in Major League Baseball but the team strives to fill more seats by offering a limited run of “Timeless Tickets.”
The “Timeless Ticket” is a neat little package of tickets to games but also includes a replica of a ticket in brass, engraved with the fan’s name and numbered under the MLB Authentication program. The brass ticket weighs one pound and comes in a velvet-lined box along with a nice wooden display stand as well as a certificate of authenticity.
Holders of the Timeless Ticket will be able to redeem a seat to any Brewers home game held at Miller Park at any time in the future in exchange for the ticket. The ticket would be good for opening day games or even the 7th game of a World Series.
The package was recently updated to include ticket vouchers to attend nine additional Brewers regular season games of the owner’s choice (excluding opening day and postseason).
The run of Timeless Tickets had been set at only 1,000 and sports a $1,000 price tag.
There is one caveat, though. The game choice should be arranged for with Brewers staff far enough ahead of time to avoid a sold out game as any game the Timeless Ticket is applied to is subject to availability. The ticket won’t guarantee that a holder can go to any game at any time and on an unrestricted basis.
Milwaukee has gone into postseason play just three times since 1981. During the 2014 season the team averaged 79 percent in capacity and earned 8th in overall attendance.
Last year, after the Brewers chances to advance into the playoffs were dashed by a loss to Cincinnati, fans lamented the unusable postseason passes, “worthless tickets,” that just then arrived in the mail.
