Maybe the staple holes are the super secret (well not so secret now) method of identifying counterfeit tickets!

They had special staples made, BBadger. Gate will authenticate not only by existence of the holes, but also by diameter of the holes.
If I told you if they were going to be bigger or smaller, I'd have to kill you...

Held up my 2009 ticket to the light - sure enough, two tiny staple holes. Curse you, BMORG! That was my retirement fund.

And I was all oh that is really pretty and detailed i wonder what was under this hole.

I was with you until
a complete disregard for folks who buy an EXTRA TICKET just to frame it as art....

Now I want to smash the frame over your head and zip off to the playa with your extra ticket just to frame it as art.

I sure hope you did not throw away the staple, it was the priceless part and made of pure, lovely, cold steel...

So, let me make sure I understand this correctly...I am struggling to find a ticket, and people like you are buying a ticket just to frame as art? Are you for real? What the hell is wrong with a little forethought on how to keep your ticket in nice condition. LAME!

Yes, I have three tickets to 2012 BM, They are very nice. I have them framed, and hung on my wall. Just to admire the wonderful artwork, would not even think of going out there where all those hippys are gonna sweat for a week. Art...now that's the ticket. :roll:

You got it wrong. You paid $420 for that genuine priceless bmorg staple. The ticket - well, it was just a staple holder...ran out of Cap'n Crunch box tops, sorry...

Dammit! I don't have my staple yet. I wonder if any of the staples in my house, properly modified, would make a decent counterfeit reasonable facsimile?

Somebody, please post a high-resolution macro of your staple in this thread. I want to copy it use it to verify the authenticity of my staple when it arrives.

To be serious for a second, a ticket would be worth more with the purchase letter.
Tickets aren't normally a high value item by themselves.

I personally cannot go without the staple. I love to walk around with the tickets in front of my eyes and see the playa with Staple Hole Glasses
