One of the most memorable scenes from 1986’s “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” takes place at Wrigley Field.
Ferris, his friend Cameron, and Ferris’ girlfriend Sloane skipped school to have a memorable day in Chicago. As part of their adventures, they attend a Montreal Expos game against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field, where Ferris catches a foul ball. He is almost seen by his nemesis, Dean Ed Rooney, but Rooney narrowly misses seeing him as the camera moves away from his grip.
Now at least one lucky fan has purchased a piece of this particular part of history.
Heritage Auctions had acquired a ticket from the game where the scene was filmed. The ticket ended up selling on Friday for $1,050.
“Some fans of the game kept their tickets and [it] turned out to be a good decision,” Mike Provenzale, sports operations supervisor and auctioneer at Heritage, told ESPN.
The game took place on September 24, 1985, with the Expos defeating the Cubs 17-15. Future Baseball Hall of Famer Andre Dawson was the biggest star, going 4-for-6 with three home runs and eight RBIs.
Tickets to high profile sporting events have sold for quite a bit of money in the past. Heritage auctioned a ticket from Jackie Robinson’s MLB debut for $480,000 in February, Provenzale said.
