In 1870, the Cincinnati Club began charging an admission fee of 50 cents.
The Atlantic Club declined to impose this fee, and as a result the Red Stockings bypassed them in their first tour of eastern clubs that year.
In time, this price appears to have become the standard for matches between all-professional clubs.
