4 tickets since '99, August 27th at 11 AM

Here were our seats at Citizens Bank Park - this was section 113 row 33 which is roughly equivalent to the light green section in 114A.



It was really hard to see the play down at the other end, ended up watching most of the play on the big screen when it was down in the other end (...during hanks save...)

In my email I dont see anything about asking for names of people who are going to use my tickets and it appears we will be able to print/forward the tickets from our account manager?

Tickets since 2010 and my date is 8/29 at 3. I guess they didn't do it by tenure?

No. they will only be mailed out. These will be commemorative tickets and they are trying to make it a little more difficult to buy and flip.

They are definitely prioritizing lower bowlers, especially new guys in an attempt to keep them happy (is my guess). I think they made a mistake with niinah, he was lower bowl first year last year and only got upper bowl in the corner a couple weeks ago. They probably used his "contribution ranking" from last year

They may still have forwarding, who knows. But beware if you're looking to flip since it's especially hard to sell on stubhub these days because they mark up your take home by 25% for the new "what you see is what you pay" policy.

So if you bought seats at $299 each, if you wanted to unload at face to the seller at $299 your take home would actually be $229 and you would take a loss of -$70. You would need to sell to the buyer at $390 just to break even, let alone make a profit

I prefer the new policy. I can not attend the Giants home opener this year. My tickets are $95 each. Wanted $250 each, so put them up at $300. Buy saw $334, and they sold in less than 24 hours. $255 each for me after fees. You will not have any problem getting $400 each for the $299 seats. The cheapest you will see the $299 seats on stubhub will likely be well over $500.

He's upper bowl in the $76 price point.

We've had our tix for about 30 years now and we're in the $56 price range but the accounts under my dads friends name so once he forwards us the email, I'll post our time.

Maybe the date depends on current ticket price point and time of day on tenure?

edit: I do data analysis for a living, that is my hypothesis from the scattered observations so far lol

This thread should be exhibit 1A as to why hockey has a lockout every few years. An endless line of folks willing to shell out big bucks to freeze their ***** off a half a mile from the rink.

Heard back from my rep. Apparently, each price point for regular tickets is only allowed to buy from specific price points for this game.

"Tickets are on sale based on seating locations then by tenure. Each seating location has a certain inventory that they are allowed to purchase (i.e. people that have 1879 or Madison Club tickets will not be allowed to purchase the cheaper tickets for the outdoor games). If an account has tickets in the lower bowl and the upper bowl, they are going with their lower bowl location for when they can purchase and again cannot purchase tickets at the lower price points.
Hopefully this makes sense and you can understand why we did it this way."

Why would I want to go through all this to get $400 which would just make me break even? Your take home on the Giants tickets was 255, and the buyer paid 334 - so you effectively paid a 24% fee to go through stubhub.

I don't know what the prices will be on the secondary market, there's a lot of seats out there to be sold. Many STHs will just be able to jusify a pair to one of the games. That means for people with 4 or 6 seats x 2 games, they will be sellers that's going to increase supply and put some downward pressure on prices

Normally I would be predicting prices to be around face plus 5-10%, but Super Bowl week is a real wild card here. I have no idea how this is going to play out, all I know is I want to be at the Wednesday night game and I want decent seats

You have it backwards. This is why hockey should not be having any lockouts. There's no reason to squeeze more out of the players because obviously the game is growing and people are able and willing to pay more and more for tickets and as you said this thread is exhibit 1A

As for the freezing, dress appropriately - gonna be an awesome set of games

Yes, I paid a fee to go through stubhub. They are not running the site for free. Stubhub makes it very easy and I get paid quickly after the tickets are delivered. Would I have liked to been able to keep the 334 all for myself? Sure, but I didn't have anyone willing to pay that much, but there was someone out there in internet world.

As for this package. If you buy your tickets, you will not have a problem finding someone to take the sunday game, whether you use Stub hub or not.

Nope they aren't running it for free, and they provide insurance on both sides of the transaction. But when you're talking a 25% markup (it's actually 79% on the cheapest MLB tickets), it takes away pretty much all of a seller's margin for all events except the highest demand ones. They should be collecting a fee, but 25% is insane and it's going to cost them a lot of business since it's so much in your face now with everything packed into the listed price.

If I do buy extras, like you said I shouldn't have a problem finding a buyer but it won't be through stubhub. I'll probably offer them up on craigslist or on here

Interesting, sounds like the same process as the Rangers upgrade round at the Garden in the offseason. The Yankees use the same 3D visualizer as the rangers (yankees.io-media.com), so I'm pretty sure we'll be using the same seat selection tools and will only be able to see inventory for the same relative price tiers as our current season seats
