yea, i gotcha. sounds fine except that he got them off ebay...kinda odd, but isn't anything off craigslist?
as for meeting at a gas station with someone you meet off craigslist, thats kinda understandable, due to the fact that you have no idea who he and he has no idea who you are...he could be equally iffy as you might be...he might be some crazy dude with a gun as you could be some crazy guy with a gun.
for the price and the seats, seems reasonable. and if it is a cash-ticket transfer, i wonder if there is any way you could call the drinkscotch center and have them validate the barcode for you. dunno if they would 'waste' their time with that (i would call that good customer service, but thats just me). even if they would just do one, i would probably trust it, as you would pick any random of the eight, and if it matched up, you're proally chillin.
oh yea, one last thing. you know what tickets look and feel like. they either look like single game tickets or season ticket holder tickets (especially sec 324, or rather, upper bowl). If there is any doubts, let your common sense tell you.
you could also ask him for the ebay auction number before you meet and see if the seats match up (or if they exist...just play dumb and be like 'sorry, never bought any tickets off craigslist and want to make sure this is legit').
and if he is meeting you at a gas station, take his liscense plate number down, that way if he screws you, you can call the cops and have some kinda lead...
