    Re: The StubHub Thread

    Just to clarify trueblue's response, its a $5 minimum for the order, not per ticket. You can also see the subtotal if you go as if you are going to buy them. It shows up even before you put your CC info in.

    I wouldn't wait for $199.99. If you see them for $200.00, go for it.

    I sat in Legends (actually in a section, 29, which is now Champions) for Opening Day in '09. I figured then it was worth it one time if I were paying for it myself and assuming $200 doesn't force you to skip meals for the next week, it is worth that much to do it once.

    BTW - For reference, another forum member (dadrumma) snagged a pair of Legends seats last year for $5 each (probably someone's typo on StubHub). That's right, five dollars! On top of that, after he had gone to the stadium and chowed down in the fancy restaurant, the game was rained out so he got to go back and do it again. Best deal ever or ever will be.

    Re: The StubHub Thread

    I actually was given free tickets to the game last night. Sat in the Terrace section, and except for two other people, the whole role was empty. 36,000 sounds about right. For fun, I did check Stub Hub prices for Field Level seats, and they were definitely affordable. Next weekday game I go to (that I pay for) I will shoot for something fancy lol.

    Try to hold out for as long as reasonably possible before cutoff. As you see in previous posts here, the prices have been tumbling fast in the closing hours prior to cutoff. You're definitely bound to find a good pickup if you can wait til 4, grab and print something quick, and dash to the game. Happy hunting!

    2 hours before scheduled start for baseball, and game time for most other sports

    Thank you....
    I'm planning on doing this eventually - buying tickets as late as possible.
    Some good deals over the last few days.

    I wish I read this thread last year. It would have saved me from buying even that 9 game value pack this year.

    Listen, I've known these prices for 2 years now, and I still kept a small game plan for 2012. Cheap option for potential World Series tickets

    True, forgot about that. Good at least sitting up by the light tower will hopefully pay off with that. Never been to a World Series game. In hindsight though I now wish I took those bleacher seats for $250 for game 6 of the 96 World Series.

    Remember that clicking on some tickets with five seconds to go before cutoff won't work. Your transaction has to be completed (or at the very least almost completed) at cutoff or your transaction will be cut off too (as painful as that sounds).

    All you had to do to get Tier Reserved seats for that game was to wait on line outside the Stadium for 8 hours on Columbus Day..... I was in Tier Reserved 34, Row P. I think face was $45. I got on line after work, had my tickets in hand about midnight.

    There were no plan holders then. The Yankees had 40,000 seats to sell for each World Series game.

    Also, no internet sales and phone was a manual operator process back then, and good luck getting through. Back then they also kept the ticket pools separate to an extent

    No internet sales is a given...

    One way I'd get tickets to shows back then was to call out-of-state TM numbers... And I was trying that day when at work. The NY/NJ/CT numbers were a waste of time. When I finally got through, I was told by the operator that she couldn't sell me tickets because my call wasn't routed through a tri-state exchange... But she did tell me what they had left to sell, which wasn't much. She recommended I go up to the Stadium to buy.... So I did.

    Cheers!

    there's currently seasts in 227A for $40 and seats in 223 for $60...while not 80% below face like the last fews days, its still 50% below...not too shabby.

    Re: The StubHub Thread

    130 row 4 for $100. Not bad since this is there's no 1st or 2nd row, making this the actual 2nd row. Some added excitement from being so close to the field, but as noted before, not a great sight line for viewing the action.

    And you can probably move down later in the game, or earlier if there's a no show.

    I'm pretty surprised at how stubhub is doing for this game, less than 800 tix left. This is actually a 9-game plan date, and I'm holding a pair that looks like I'll be able to get back face after fees. I'm going to wait it out until around a quarter to 5 before setting the market price on the listing

    I went to the stadium about 1 hour after they clinched and it was crazy. It looked like 2 circles of people around the stadium for tickets, and then spillover into the adjacent baseball fields (the ones closest t the stadium). People were playing a pickup football game right in the middle of all of it.
