If you have a buddy who is a cop, take him with you. It's real easy to get tickets from the side of the street for twenty bucks if your off duty cop friend flashes his badge in front of the scalper who's been trying to sell you decent seats at twice face value.

Too bad he has work next weekend... ah well.

Why not just have your buddy flash a fake badge?

I don't think that is a problem any longer. Scalping is now obviously legal. You can find many examples at the ticket exchange on Panthers.com. Those guys selling tickets for 2X face on the street are not breaking the law. As long as the tickets are good.

Scalping is still not legal on the streets - only on the internet through websites that gives buyers some kind of guarantee of the authenticity of the tickets

I would hope to be considered innocent unless my tickets are proven to be counterfeit. I have just as much right to sell my tickets for profit as anyone if it is legal. If people need tickets, I am serving a need. That's what I would say in court if arrested. But NO, I am not selling my tickets.

It's not legal if you're wanting to scalp your tickets on the street.


And I think it's also illegal to impersonate a police officer Charlottenian

The prices usually drop below face value after kickoff.
