How do I delete cloned images with the same name all at once?

The property “name” refers to more than “ticket”, it also includes the description of the control, in your case the name will be “image ticket”.
You also will need to count down from the number of images in order to delete all of them, otherwise you will run into a situation where x is higher than the number of images still on your card
Use short name instead of name, this will script  will work:

on mouseUp
put the number of images of this card into tImages
repeat with x = tImages down to 1
  if the short name of image x = “ticket” then  
     delete image x 
  end if
end repeat
end mouseUp
