Traditional tickets were made of paper.

First tickets were issued in the second half of the XIX century. Often it was just a piece of paper with hand-written text on it, signed or sealed by seller.

Nowadays tickets are printed on a special paper with various protections against forgery (e.g. microprinting, hologram).
