Jimmy Jones would attend the Kentucky Derby in Louisville as regular as a hand on a stop watch would tick off the seconds. He was a fixture year after year in Section 319, Row C, Box 5. That was his box. I purchased five Kentucky Derby ticket stubs which the old man saved. How could he throw them away? I have two left, a 1991 and 1992 personal ticket. You can bet both of these tickets were in this trainer's pocket when Strike the Gold (1991) and Lil E. Tee (1992) hit the wire.

     Both of these tickets are in excellent shape and measure approximately 2.5" x 4.5" of nice heavy cardboard stock Fine art work and quality printing characterize these two items. I will include with the purchase of each a photo scan of Jimmy Jones, certificate of authenticity, and the sale bill.

Price: $40.00 each.  (both for $75.00)
