Fair warning to the board, unsurprisingly the University ticket office is already receiving reports of counterfeit tickets. (WARNING mlive link incoming)
I already had a seller try to scam me on craigslist, so I called the ticket office myself and here's a couple of things to look for:
- Obvious errors: Look for misspellings, incorrect logos or dates (duh.)
- Kickoff time: No real tickets will have a kickoff time listed.They will have "TBA".
- Barcode: While frequently left off of internet ticket pictures, the ticket office told me that the first three numbers of the barcode should be "398".
Hope this helps someone save some heartache next weekend. Go Blue.
