The NYPD busted two men Monday on charges they were selling counterfeit Super Bowl tickets of such high quality that the fakes could have fooled the electronic scanners at the gates of MetLife Stadium, authorities said.

Arrested on charges of forgery, trademark counterfeiting and related offenses were Damon Daniels, 43, of the Bronx and Queens, as well as Eugene Fladger, 32, of Philadelphia, NYPD Lt. Christopher Fasano of the department's organized crime unit told Newsday.

Daniels and Fladger were nabbed in a monthlong undercover probe that began after police were tipped off by investigators for the NFL, Fasano said. New York cops made a number of purchases in recent weeks of fake tickets sold by the duo for recent NFL playoff games, investigators said.
