How To Tell Real Super Bowl Tickets From Fakes
It’s not easy identifying fake Super Bowl tickets from the real ones. However, there are some noticeable differences according to the NFL:
*Fake tickets are often over-sized.
*Fakes often have a generic decal on the back.
*Sometimes, there are even misspellings in the fine print on counterfeit tickets.
“Every year we see 1-200 fans get turned away at the gate because they get scammed,” says Anastasia Danias, Vice President of NFL Legal Affairs.
However, there’s a unique features on this year’s tickets: “When you heat it up either by rubbing it or with hot breath it disappears and when it cools off it reappears,” Danias said. It’s called “thermo-chromic” ink.
Super Bowl XLVIII tickets also feature cross hatch raised artwork, an embossed foil Lombardy trophy and a triple hologram security label. You first see the Statue of Liberty, but when you tilt it you’ll either see New York, New Jersey, or you’ll see the roman numerals for 48, XLVIII.
