Get Your Lakers Tickets!

 
June 10, 1960, Lakers

June 10, 1960: The Lakers started selling season tickets for their new home in Los Angeles and what a different world it was.

Season ticket holders would be assured of at least 25 home games in the new Los Angeles Sports Arena. Back then, the NBA regularly set games in neutral sites and it was unclear how many dates the Lakers would get at home.

"If the Lakers are successful in obtaining two or three more home dates, the ticket holders will be billed the additional amounts," a small story in The Times reported.

    Wonder how much the season tickets were then – maybe $100?
