Scam or Souvenir?

 

While watching some of Thursday's White Sox/Angels game, Steve Stone read a promotional announcement that I found to be pretty remarkable. Give the White Sox credit. They've found a way to make money off of tickets that were never purchased for a specific game.

Apparently, you can buy the unsold tickets to Mark Bueherle's perfect game. Stone didn't mention the prices. Are they selling them at face value? A premium?

Yes --  you too, can claim to be at a game you didn't attend. What would stop the team from just printing and printing and printing tickets if there was a demand for this souvenir? Who'd know?  Is each ticket authenticated?

Well, if you can't fill the seats, get creative. And, I must admit....this is.
