nonUnqIdx is a logical index of rows of TT.Alpha that are a repeat (ie, not the first instance).
[~, AlphaGroups] = ismember(TT.Alpha, unique(TT.Alpha,'stable')); % identify groups
nonUnqIdx = [1;diff(AlphaGroups)] < 1;
% Tickets for all non-unique (ie repeat) strings in Alpha
TT.Ticket(nonUnqIdx)

n = groupcounts(T.Alpha)
[~, last] = unique(T.Alpha, 'last')
T.Ticket(last(n>1))
Using the "new and shiny" groupcounts.
