Are they doing hard tickets or are they all electronic in that credit card thing that a lot of teams have been switching to now?

Just an update, MSG dumped FedEx like Avery's sloppy seconds and is shipping everything UPS this year. My tix will be here by Thursday at the latest

I think these are the guys who are printing tickets for MSG and other pro teams in our area: http://www.wwlinc.com/ (Weldon, Williams and Lick, Inc.)

ok, I figured out what the deal is with the tickets - they sent the STH card separately from New Jersey. I just got mine along with the tenure pin and the useless $10 parking coupons. I'm guessing there's not even gonna be the "free midget soda when you buy $500 worth of overpriced food" offer this year. The actual tickets are in transit via UPS from Arkansas and are supposed to get here tomorrow. I'd be surprised if anyone actually has their ticket booklets yet

Is it me or does it look like they messed up the ink on the tickets?

Just got my Knicks tickets, and they are really nice. They did a whole re-design this year with vertical length tix instead of horizontal. The ink is sharp, bright, and high resolution.

They totally skimped on the Ranger tix!

The Rangers tickets of the last few years all look the same, to me.

I wish they would go back to the thinner tickets they used in 98, 99, etc. Could actually fit those in my pocket/wallet without ruining them, or a normal size envelope when I had to mail them out.

My recollection is that the organization has almost always done a better job with knicks tix than rangers tix.

I think the Ranger tix will get a similar redesign for next year. It's nice when they mix it up a little. I just wish the Ranger tix came with more perks. Concesssions are so stupid expensive it would be nice if they gave us a rewards card with like $100 of credit for whatever we want at the garden. They mark everything up 50-90% anyways, it's the least they could do - cheap bastads!

i like the merch discounts, especially when it is on garden exclusive merchandise, like that 85th with the numbers sewn in the tail, or the playoff or regular season msg exclusive t-shirts. also sometimes they let us use the discount on sale items, so it's good for that.

50-90%? Last time I checked those $5 waters ran ~$1 at Duane Reade. lol

It yeah, definitely time for a ticket redesign. And its like they don't even try any more. They just stuffed them in an envelope this year.

Well I guess I was calculating differently (+$4 / 5 = 80%) but you definitely get the drift!

They mark up the prices because they can and don't give us food coupons because they don't have to. It sucks.

That's right, and if the Rangers were sucking muck at the bottom of the standings for a couple years I'm sure it would be a completely different story.

I prefer the crappy coupons to the alternative but I also prefer no coupons to the 1.8% discount ones they've sent in the past.

Unlikely we will ever see a major ticket overhaul again. It's obvious they are strongly trying to move everyone toward e-ticketing.

Yeah that is a trend, I'm just glad in New York State it's illegal for venues to issue tickets that can't be transferred or resold. New Jersey is passing a similar law and it's going to be even better because it'll force the teams and event promoters to disclose exactly how many tickets are being sold, just so they can't manipulate sales like the Rangers & Knicks are doing now. But hopefully STHs are vocal enough here to keep the hard tickets as an option. They charge $25 per account for the hard ticket option now. I'm not sure what their cost is on printing a ticket booklet but I'd probably be willing to pay $50 just to have those hard tickets as souvenirs.

Well they've now completely done away with all coupons except for those $10 off parking which is stupid because you can easily find free parking after 7 pm within a 6 block radius of the Garden. Or if you prefer checking it, you can hit up nyc.bestparking.com to find the cheapest garages in manhattan which end up being cheaper than the Meyers garages even AFTER the $10 coupons

What would be really sweet is if every 5 years or so they gave you a free pair of new Bauer or CCM hockey skates =)

One of the only reasons I have Optimum triple play is flat $19 parking any time at Meyers, up to 10 hours.
Pretty sure they won't allow that $10 coupon on top of that (?)

edit: lol inadvertently wrote triple pay (which is closer to the truth)

Is that because Dolan owns Meyers or is it because Meyers wants to keep MSG happy and keep promoting their garages?
