    They definitely should have a bar code, but sellers don't normally show them on eBay listings because bar codes can be copied and counterfeited. I'm not sure why those are Ticketmaster-style tickets, unless they're possibly SRO tickets that went on sale late. I would be very wary. The Patriots don't have Ticketexchange via Ticketmaster directly, just their own in-house version, in which case tickets are printed from your computer. You might want to consider joining the team's season ticket waiting list (for a fee) which would give you access to the team-sponsored Ticketexchange.

    There was a similar question a week or so ago. Another person was leery of plain looking tickets but apparently they were fine. I guess some tickets are nicer looking, with pictures of a player on it, and some look plain; perhaps having to do with season ticket holders and individual tickets. As Tunescribe mentioned they should all have bar codes, but there's a valid reason for not showing them to you ahead of time.

    Has the person been on ebay for a while? Lots of transactions? Positive feedback? If so I would think you will be okay; if not I think I might pass.

    Here's that other thread: http://www.patsfans.com/new-england...e-12-19-pats-pack-game-page2.html#post2282290
