    Isn't that wild - the highest face value ticket is $18? No guesses on the year, huh?

    I cheated and checked schedules all the way back until the first year in LA and cannot figure it out, so maybe a 1957?

    Great question AlphaRam.

    1983 is my answer and I'm sticking to it.

    Can't be because the Rams moved into Anaheim stadium in 1980!! My guess will be this is the opening season @ Anaheim , seems to be possible for prices in 1979. Possibly promotion for people to see the Rams opening season?

    Good answer to stick to big guy, because you're right. I actually went to the Buffalo game that year and remember that half the crowd was rooting for the Bills. That crowd split always happened when a NY team came to Anahiem. They were disappointed though because the Rams killed them 41-17, with Dickerson having a great game. $18 seemed like a lot back then, and Rams games for me during those years were a luxury.

    You are correct, sir!

    I have been looking through some Gameday books from back in the 80's that I stumbled across when I was looking for something else. I'll see if I can scan and share some other stuff from that time.

    Do you mean that this happened in LA like it does in STL. Perish the thought!

    Hey, I know of one not-too-fanatical fan (is there such a thing?) that swears up and down that the stands were at least 80% full of Rams fans while they were in LA. That's why he thinks the team should move back there...when I asked how full the stands were in the early 90's, he said he doesn't know exactly how many people were there because he had already moved away, but he knows the stadium was always full.

    I'm sure it was. Just not while the Rams were playing.
