Any opinions on 4 tickets piggybacked vs 4 in a row? As far as selling particularly?

We currently have 4 in a row, but can piggyback either the 2 outside (worse) seats and the 2 in front of them, or the 2 inside (better) seats and the 2 behind them.

Is it worth it or just stick with 4 in a row?
I would stick with 4 together. It seems like more and more STHs are becoming ticket agents for the Rangers!

That is something to be concerned about. When everyone has 4 or 6 seats and sells most of the games there's quite a bit of inventory out there.

I have thought the same thing. Too many wanna-be ticket brokers on here.

Actually it's more like "DON"T wanna-be" ticket brokers. But who can afford to go to that many games including pre-season? You have to sell a good portion.

It's the only way to get playoff tickets at an almost affordable price.

Remind me of this post when you're looking for tickets lol (JK)

It all falls apart if the team has a couple of bad years. Look at the Canucks, it was impossible to get tickets and now this year they burned through the waiting list and anyone can get in because so many people dropped their seats that they couldn't afford since they couldn't get back cost on their sales

Yeah, the whole seating relocation process is a catch-22. In order to improve your seats you need people to drop their subs, which typically only happens (in large numbers) when the team plays poorly. When the team is good everyone renews and there are very few seats available.

someone scooped up the seats in 214, and the 2 next to me in 208. my last hope is row 10 in 220 for the 2 individuals. anyone think that spot is worthwhile? Otherwise I will not be adding any more seats.


218 row 4 is also a possibility.


Thanks,
Mike

This is a very low risk season to renew coming on the heels of a Cup Run.

The 218 row 4 will have less foot traffic to deal with. The 220s are nice in that they are on the aisle...but that aisle is basically in your sight line of the game and could be distracting.

well because there's 3 seats in the row, they won't let me just take two.

I might just wait until next season to add.

Yeah exactly, buy low sell high. I got in on the Knicks in the middle of the Isiah Thomas dark ages at $25 per ticket where most nights nobody would even consider giving you more than 5 bucks for the pair. I took that beating for 2-3 years and then things turned around and the same seats ($49 now) are worth double the price printed on them

You need to find someone else with a single and get them to add 1 of the three to their cart (no need to click final confirm button). Then the pair will free up and you can take them

Do I need to go to the next step after adding the seat to my cart? I didn't click on "check out".
