Acapulco lottery ticket 1970?

Hi,

First of all let me apologize for not uploading the photo of the ticket. I have been spending 2 hours without being able to download this image... maybe I could email the link to another member who will be able to download it and put it on this thread of messages.

I have for several years now, a good quantity of those Lottery tickets called Acapulco. Those lottery tickets were written in french and (illegally) sold to general public with the purpose of guessing the exact timing of the last goal,and/or the first goal and winning a certain prize in cash. So as an example, let's say that the ticket showed 3 minutes and 07 seconds, then if the last goal was scored at that exact minute and second, the owner of the ticket was winning $500... I think those were from the 1970's and were only available for games at the Old Forum in Montreal... Also, if some of you remember, there was a scandal at the old Forum in those same years with the official marker not stopping the clock at the exact second of a goal... Was this done purposely ??? (fraud?) I would be interested in having the RIGHT information on those tickets, I have been wondering for a long time if I got the right story or it was just another dream ??? Thanks!

Paper Guy...
