Don't know if this has been mentioned, but the Sox are offering two free "forwards" on their ST management site, meaning the $2 per ticket fee for forwarding tickets will be waived for two games.

So, my suggestion is to forward the tix to yourself, and save the original ticket stub unblemished. I'd like to think it's going to be a nice collectible.

I don't think they don't "tear" tickets anymore.....they read the barcode on them with a scanner.

So the tickets should be okay either way ya go I think.

I know our playoff & world series tix were unharmed.

Wow. They've been scanning tickets since mid-2003.

OK, OK, OK, I know they scan tickets, but if you saw the condition of my mangled tickets after games(including my WS game 1 ticket) after I jam 'em in my pants pocket, etc, etc, you'd consider this too.

How did you fit a WS ticket into your pocket? Those things were freakin' huge!

They had them in a plastic holder that people wore around their neck.

I think they are still selling them, not a bad idea for the opening day tickets. Although, a bit pricey for them...$20.

I bought one with a replica ticket in it at the parade for $10.

They gave away free lanyards (left over from the '03 ASG) at the new ST holder parties.

I think every sporting event should scan tickets like the White Sox do. It leads to more collectible tickets. At the NCAA tourney this year they still ripped off the stubs. Kind of annoying but oh well.

Where does it state we get 2 free forwards?

My WS tickets were standard sized -- fit very nicely in the pocket. Of course, all i could score was upper deck seats, so maybe that explains it.

I get what he's saying. I very rarely have a ticket come out unharmed. Heck, I can barely recognize some ticketfast printouts sometimes after a game.

I got an email to this effect a couple of days ago.
