Default How to spot reprint ticket?

I'm questioning the authenticity of the 3rd ticket down below (vs The Giants). Just picked it up and compared to other tickets I own, it seems a little off. The first thing I noticed is that it's a different paper stock, however, when I compared it to my other 1942 it is similar. It appears the stock changed from the 1941 ticket to the 1942.

The other thing that jumped out is that there is no perforated edge on the new ticket. This seems odd to me. However, the new ticket has an "Airport Exhibition Co." designation on the back, which my other two do not have. I can't find out much about that company so not sure what the relevance is.

I thought maybe the perforation had been trimmed off, but it is the exact same size as the other 1942.

Any thoughts?

Get a very strong magnifying glass or handheld microscope (cheap on eBay) of 20x or more power and examine the printing. If the lettering and printed graphics have a dark rim around the edges, it is the type of old time printing they would have used and consistent with it being original.

The rim is from how the old technology pressed the ink into the paper, pushing it out to the edges so it's darker there.

If you post really close up scans, I can often see it in an online photo.

I can often identify the printing (modern or old) from a really big, quality scan-- but lots of people are unable to supply them for whatever reason. Small and out of focus pics do no good.

Just an FYI during the war years sometimes things became more expensive or unable to find. There are some baseball cards during the war years (I forget which ones I think Play-Ball) that had to print on thinner stock.
