Might even be the company making the giveaway or one of their employees selling them behind the scenes. Might not necessarily be a Sox employee doing it.

Didnít mean to imply it was a Sox employee. Just saying that counterfeit giveaway items exist. I agree with you that itís more likely to be someone working at the company that makes them.

Wasn't referring to you specifically, was just tossing out an idea. Unlike the ticket issue this thread was started to discuss there are alternative options for the bobbleheads. Heck, these might even be the rejects that didn't pass inspection and the person in charge of disposing of them is pulling a fast one and shuffling them to someone who runs an ebay store. Would be tough to prove too.

The person selling might also have access to large amounts of cheap tickets. There used to be a guy who brought in 10-15 kids to get autographs. He wore a jacket that said “Wombats” and would essentially buy cheap kids tickets and they would collect autographs for him when they did autograph Sunday’s. Maybe they’d get a hot dog or soda pop.

This person could have a deal with the Sox here he buys a group of tickets and is guaranteed the promotional items. Does that store raise red flags? Yes. Is there a guarantee of fraud? No.
