Tupac Shakur’s Ticket Stub to Mike Tyson Boxing Match Up for Auction
A bunch of Tupac items have been up for sale lately, but this one is slightly different, because it's from the night the legendary artist was killed. Pac's ticket stub from the Mike Tyson-Bruce Seldon boxing match in Las Vegas on Sept. 7, 1996, has gone up for auction.
GoldinAuctions.com describes the item as the "very ticket Tupac used to gain entrance to the fight." The auction website goes on to detail the exact appearance of the stub, stating, "The 3 1/4 x 4 ½ inch ticket has the MGM Grand logo and the fight information printed in dot-matrix computer type."
The description continues, "Section FLR4 Row E Seat 2, Tupac’s seat, is printed at the bottom and 'Tupac' has been written in an unknown hand just above the seat number, most likely by someone in the box office. The stub shows light wear with very light wrinkling and edge wear from where the stub was detached upon entering the venue."
