Playoff baseball returns to Fenway Park on Sunday, and for every fan lucky enough to have a ticket to the game, there are thousands who’d love to go in their place. Many of those fans shut out will go to great lengths on the secondary market to try to get tickets.

For those fans who just have to get in the park for the Division Series this weekend (and this goes double for a potential Championship Series against the Yankees), make sure you’re getting your tickets from as reliable source as possible. In the era of print-at-home tickets and easy ways to duplicate tickets, it’s easier than ever to get fooled with bad tickets.

The best advice: If you don’t have tickets, or aren’t getting them from the Red Sox box office, don’t go. Watch on TV at home or on your friend’s HD monster, and enjoy. But if the call of the game is too strong to ignore, make sure you go through a licensed ticket agency. You can find them fairly easily through advertising and online searches.

Most important, try to stay away from online listing services and classified ads that don’t make it clear from where the tickets are coming. You could be dealing with bogus tickets. And do your research. If bleacher seats are running in the $100-plus range, and you find them for $50, you should wonder what’s going on.

Playoff baseball is an exciting time in Boston, and cheering for the Red Sox from a seat Fenway is a tough idea to pass up. Just make sure that if you’re going out on the secondary market that you find a real ticket. You’d hate to be left on Yawkey Way with no seat and an empty wallet.
