Default Do you guys think this 3000 hit ticket is real?

I just bought this ticket on ebay. It all adds up, he says he was at the game. I researched his info and he's 63 years old and lives near Pittsburgh., He sent it insured etc. I'm going to send it to psa for grading but at 45 business day turnaround will ebay still cover it if it proves fake?

I saw that auction, in the description he wrote a fan wrote on the back, then in the questions answered section he wrote that he attended the game.

That was a bit of a red flag for me, but I'd think you would know once you have it in hand, usually fakes are fairly easy to spot, unless they are getting better these days.

Paul, I'm just not sure. I collect mostly older tickets and have only done tickets recently. I'm pretty good with cards but not tickets. I'm concerned with the different shades of colors on the ticket and also now that you've said it, I realize he says a fan marked the back and then when answering questions he said he attended the game...

I saw that auction too. I messaged him a few questions and he never responded. When sellers do not respond, I move on. Red flag for me. Also, for the condition of that ticket, the price seemed rather high. Just my two cents. Hope it is real!

Thanks Matt. He did answer some questions but we'll see. I'm thinking about returning it. as far as price though, it's getting tough to find this ticket in any grade for under $1000

From the photo, this Clemente 3,000th hit ticket does appear to be real.
I have seen several of these through the years. Red was one of their ticket stock colors.
If the cardboard in the exposed areas (chipped edge where no red is) appears old I believe you are safe.
Just my 2 cents.
By the way, if you are sending it to PSA, have it only slabbed as authentic. If you get it graded with a numerical grade, you will receive a 1 at best because of condition which will make it a challenge to resell down the line IMHO.
Scott

Thanks a lot Scott. I was going to get it slabbed an A for just the reason you stated. I appreciate your advice!

FYI the ticket is 100% Genuine, the admission price is high
because of location of seat, the taxes are also right , as is the stock color is RED which is line with the higher seat pricing , the chipping on the edges also shows it is on a thicker cardboard stock
so from my prospective Ticket is 100% legit
I can give you all the info you need regarding PSA submissions
I am a Ticket consultant for PSA , and can guide you for your best options for submissions

The ticket looks good but I have four Pirates tix from 1972 from the Field Box, First Level seating that were priced at $4.15 too. I'm not familiar with all of the Pirates pricing that season but would two tickets in different areas of the stadium be the same exact price? Another thing I found interesting is the way the ticket is torn at the bottom compared to the ones I have. To get a straight tear right under that wording would be very difficult from what I can see. As you can see the wording - NO MONEY REFUNDED - is directly under that pretty close together. Not saying it's impossible but the tear looks too straight to me. I wonder if there's a chance this ticket could have been trimmed?

Here's a link to a couple of other Clemente 3000 hit stub examples that are on another website for what it's worth:
