ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) - Busch Stadium will be a Sea of Red tomorrow night, and if you’re going to the game, or sitting at a bar you’ll want to load up on World Series merchandise.

Major League Baseball officials are warning fans of unscrupulous people out to try and score a little bit of cash.

MLB Properties Vice President, Ethan Orlinsky, said an authentic piece of MLB merchandise will not be torn in anyway and will have all of its tags.

“First and foremost fans should look for a holographic sticker which has the Major League Baseball logo on it, and it has raised red sticking on it,” he said. Adding that there are a number of different ways to make sure it’s the real thing.

Orlinsky said uniformed police will be working with undercover MLB code enforcement officers outside Busch Stadium this weekend to weed out the frauds.

Last time the Cardinals were in the World Series in 2011, officers with the St. Louis police department seized more than 1,100 pieces of counterfeit merchandise – including hundreds of unauthorized baseball caps and T-shirts.
