      I heard of other collectors that only collect non-scratched tickets.  I wouldn't dream of doing that.  I want to know... is it a winner or not? 

      If I was going to collect pristine-esque cards, I'd carefully scratch the 2D bar code, scan, and only keep non-winning tickets with that small blemish on each ticket, good compromise for me.

            Maybe they assume the tickets are like antique furniture...so they do not remove the finish...lol.

                Who in their right mind would buy them from him for 800,000? Yipes. Only 10,000 are unscratched. I'd rather go out and spend 10,000 on new tickets and save 790,000,lol.

                        I'm guessin' the guy's already loaded.

                        Maybe in more ways than one.
