    Tickets to Early Talk, Variety and Quiz Shows from 1950s and Early 1960s. A collection of 15 tickets that allowed the lucky holders to sit in a studio audience as TV's earliest talk, variety and quiz shows were being recorded from the 1950s to early 1960s. The pioneering talents of Jackie Gleason, Steve Allen, Ernie Kovacs, Arthur Godfrey, Bob Barker, Monty Hall, and a cavalcade of others are well represented here in such defining shows as Truth or Consequence, Let's Make A Deal, and Arthur Godfrey's Talent Scouts. Surviving tickets from these important programs are rare, as they had to be surrendered at the studio to gain admittance, and each are printed on colorful card stock and are in Very Good to Excellent condition. Authenticated by the world's foremost curators of television artifacts, The Comisar Collection of Beverly Hills.
