I bought a badge from Stubhub/eBay/Reddit/Facebook.  Is it legit?

This is a difficult question! Some of them surely are, others surely aren’t. Buying from aftermarket is a risky business and we don’t recommend it. In order to tell if your badge is legit, make sure it is made of plastic, features a raised metallic design in the bottom corner, and reacts under UV light. If you MUST buy a badge aftermarket, there are places such as reddit groups that seem to have a pretty good reputation and don’t price-gouge you, but your mileage may vary.
