    Question regarding fake tickets?

    I bought tickets from stubhub for the Bengals game a couple months ago, what are the odds they are fake?

    Is there a way to find out if they are real or not?

    Any season ticket holder want to describe what the ticket looks like?

    Mine are white with some sort of picture faded into the ticket and they are shorter then tickets from years past and dont seem to feel as thick and there is no coupon of any sort on the back of it.


    I have a bad feeling.



    But before I email stubhub I was hoping sombody could tell me if the tickets I described is accurate to what theirs look like.

    Re: Question regarding fake tickets?

    here's a pic of two tickets to the giants game I have.
    I'm fairly certain they are genuine.


    Somethings you may not notice from the picture, the edges are bumpy, as if they came in a big sheet of tickets all attached together that you tear off.


    The back doesn't have a coupon, it just has a block of text saying they're not liable and all that crap, an ad for WeAreVikingsFans.com, their facebook and twitter page, and the bottom tearoff part has the samsung logo.

    As well, the "Minnesota Vikings" text under the big 10 is slightly raised.

    Well - I think this year's tickets are actually just a bit LONGER than last year's.
    Let me go verify.

    Okay - I have a ticket from last year and one from this year in my hand.
    I was correct - this year's ticket is about a 1/4-inch longer and maybe a 1/16th of an inch thinner.

    On the Bengals ticket (I'm looking at mine), there is a full-color picture of Steve Hutchinson coming out of his stance.
    Since it is the 9th game, there is a large 9 with Vikings and Bengals helmets on either side of it.
    Right below that are the words "Minnesota Vikings" that are purple and the lettering is raised (embossed) so that you can feel it when you run your fingers over it.

    On the back of that ticket is the standar "NO REFUNDS NO EXCHANGES" verbiage, followed by an ad for WeAreVikingsFans.com - and at the very bottom, the Delta Airlines logo.

    If you're missing that stuff, you don't have a real season-ticket-holder ticket.
    Which does not mean it is a fake - I have no idea what single-game tickets look like.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!
