Un-Scalped Tickets in Michigan

I have season tickets for a university sports team and would like to sell tickets to some of the games. How can I do this profitably but legally in the state of Michigan and avoid selling to a police officer?

prohibits tickets scalping.
But can I legally put a post on Craigslist offering my tickets at face value with a "convenience fee" or delivery charge equal to the going rate for black-market tickets? (My rationale here is that the price of the tickets is restricted by law, but the price of my "labor" as a seller is purely market-determined. Right?)
Also, is it true that asking a buyer to state "I am not a law enforcement officer" provides protection against entrapment-like scenarios, or is that just a legal urban legend?
For what it's worth: the university athletics office that issued the tickets does not prohibit ticket resales, though they obviously frown on scalping.
Thanks so much!
