Did he get a pair for $160 or each ticket was $160? If it was both for $160 especially off Cragslist, I'd be skeptical..

LOL

See 3 sets of 2 tickets sold for game 2 on SH, price? $29 each! Person selling obviously meant to price at $290, but $29 sold right away I am sure!

Happened to me once years ago (not as big of a game/price difference), only thing you can do is say you no longer have the tickets, and do not fill order.

Still seems weird. There are too many confirmations (including what your ultimate payout would be) that get presented for someone not to notice.

Gotta say I'm surprised at how the prices are holding up. There's been a ton of tickets sold in the past couple hours and doesn't look like they'll get too much cheaper from here. Game 1 baby, GONNA KICK SOME ASS TONIGHT!!!

Yeah, MOST of the time CL is fine. But my and pops and I got scammed once on CLs. (We ended up having to use scalper, lol which was quite the experience). It's honestly a risk, especially with playoff games. But, most of the time I have been fine.

It's kind of a trade off between security/peace of mind and scoring a great deal.

I wouldn't do a CL deal unless it was for an in-person exchange of cash for tickets. Otherwise its too easy to run a scam.

market

looks like the market bottomed out around 3 pm today. I'm trying to find a single for Wednesday so I will likely buy right around that time on Wednesday if I can't find one before then

Hopefully it's okay to talk about this? ::looks at mods:: lol

I'm no expert, but honestly my dad I just walked around the area looking for "shady" looking people ahah. A lot of times, they'll straight up ask you if you want a ticket.

Once again, I've personally only done this once in my lifetime--and out of utter desperation--so I might not be the best person to ask. ::shrug::.

hmmm....I'm pretty broke already from going to games, but if the prices fall like this for the next games, it will be hella hard to turn down.

they are pretty easy to spot. They are standing on the street saying, "Anybody selling Rangers tickets? Anyone Need Tickets?" I have noticed the same guys are usually standing in the same spot and a lot of them are working together. There is one older african-american man my friend has bought from 2 or 3 times and never had a problem. He usually stands at 31st and 7th, on the same block as the arena and across from the pizzeria. Wears glasses, about six feet tall, a little overweight.

I would just be very careful. Remember, a season ticket holder can print up tickets, which voids the hard tickets. Turn around and sell the hard tickets to a scalper who then sells to you. Could also print up several copies of his email tickets (actually anyone can do this who has tickets emailed to them). I would hope most STH's would have a conscience that makes them realize that ultimately it is another fan that will get screwed, but with the for money these are selling someone may be inclinded to get greedy and do something stupid.

Spend the $ and get from stubhub, the exchange, or even a long-time boardmember. I'm sure there is someone on here that can vouge (sp?) for the regulars selling on here.
