Rare Unused Evel Knievel Snake River Canyon Jump Ticket Found
You won't see this every day. A rare unused jump ticket from Evel Knivel's failed Snake River Canyon Jump from 1974 has surfaced on Ebay.
September 8, 1974 changed Twin Falls forever. That's either a good or a bad thing, depending on who you talk to. But, there's no denying the history of what Evel Knievel tried to do in Twin Falls.
Here's the description from the Ebay listing that just went live late last week:
A piece of Americana history available for purchase. Unused Evel Knievel Snake River Canyon Jump ticket from 1974. He was a world famous daredevil motor cross racer loved by all who watched him. Great graphics, amazing color quality. Add this piece of history to your collection today! Will be mailed to you in a rigid plastic sleeve.Measures: 8.75" tall x 3.5" at widest point
The asking price is only $30. I say "only" because this is the first time I've ever seen a ticket from Evel's 1974 canyon jump in what looks like mint condition to me.
I wish I had $30 to throw at this. Maybe you do. If so, check out the Ebay listing and get yourself some Snake River Canyon history.
