    Ticket scalping is as much an American staple as apple pie. Beginning as early as the mid?1800s, scalpers, known as ?sidewalk men, ? were charging all the traffic would bear for event tickets. Although these speculators were generally viewed as pariahs, legal attempts to limit their activities were far from successful. Over the years, as moral objections to scalping dimmed, the public became more tolerant as the practice became increasingly prevalent. This volume details the ways in which scalping has changed over the years from a one-man business to an agency-controlled enterprise. The book examines the general situation, public opinion and legal perception of scalping for four distinct periods: 1850?1899; 1900?1917; 1918?1949 and 1950?2005. Emphasis is placed on the ways in which public and legal perception of the practice has evolved over this period. Scalping, slowly gaining a more positive status, has become more accepted as part of the economic practice of free markets.
