My plan is to get them about an hour into play, surely the touts will just want to offload them by then!!

I honestly feel you're taking a big chance relying on that tactic nowadays. There are definetly less touts around, at the games I attend, mainly due to a more proactive policing of the problem.
Then there is the counterfeit prob, too many good copies easily done with modern equipment.

Pursue the normal channels, you'll get them.
