Default Questionable Vintage Tickets

Hi everyone,

Recently purchased these tickets on eBay and after receiving them I have concerns about their authenticity:

-They are all printed on the same paper stock. When compared with other tickets I have from the same era, these tickets are much thinner and more filmsy.

-There are no perforations on two of the tickets where they should be (there are just printed perforation lines).

-The have an 'inkjet printer' look to them.

Do I have some fakes on my hands?

thanks for any input,
Ryan

I don't pretend to be an expert on early tickets, but the few I have had from around the same period, had engraved printing. The backs of those look like they should also be engraved, especially with all that engine turning, not sure about the fronts however. It should be fairly easy to tell if you have them in hand. On engraved items, the ink feels slightly raised above the paper or card stock. If you run your fingernail lightly over them you can feel ridges. It should have the same feeling as running your fingernail over a crisp dollar bill.
Also, all the tickets I have had were cut straight, those look like bad scissor jobs.

I'm sure others will weigh in with way more experience than I have on this.

Ryan - Those appear to be 100% fake, for all the reasons you mentioned. They show no wear and aging, and look like the were run right off the printer. I have many college football tickets from that era..and some of the originals to what this seller appears to be faking, for comparison.

Thanks for the input. I figured as much, even when I was buying them (if you look at their active and completed auctions they have a ton of these tickets out there. Some have sold for north of $50).

The seller seems to just take items on consignment. I've entered disputes on the items.

Amazing what some people will do for a $9.99 sale. How do they sleep at night?

I almost bought a bunch of these at a Paper Show but did not go through with the purchase. I am not sure that they are fake, BUT the dealer trying to sell them did say that they were glued onto something and he soaked them off and reglued them to a thinner stock of paper. Not sure if this is the same run or not. I did buy some of the press passes that he had, but I felt that those were absolutely vintage. Hope this helps.

I have tried those links off and on since you originally posted, and every time it locks up my Net54 browser, as well as ebay. All other sites work fine, as soon as I shut down those two windows. Weird.

It looks like the back sides should have a raised embossed feel to them if they are legit.
