    Re: The StubHub Thread

    Do all the seats listed as legends on stubhub giving you access to the food and drinks area?? I wanted to take my parents as a gift since my dad is a big fan and the food could keep my mom busy who is not very interested in sports.


    Don't want to buy legends seats and then look like a fool by being told I have no access

    Yes. All Legends on StubHub come with access to food and drink area.

    TicketNetwork suing New York to make sure sellers can sell tickets not yet in their possession:

    They have a point that Federal law allows plenty of other industries to do this. You take the order then find a way to fill it

    Just like options trading... I am on the side of the brokers. Buyers just need to be educated.

    There are some re-sellers that offer instant bar-code downloads, and there are re-sellers that don't....

    Ticketmaster is reportedly colluding with scalpers to help them cheat its own system.

    Nothing new.. Where there is a dollar, there is a way.


    This kind of reminds me how scalpers used to get great tickets (first 10 rows) to concerts back in the days before the internet. I read a story about a person who was involved in it, and worked at Tower on 4th and Broadway.


    The scalpers would pay a big premium for those great seats, and brought the TicketMaster Outlet Operators in on it. There was a reason that they only took cash at the counter. Well, really two. 1.) Credit cards slowed up the process. 2.) Cash was not traceable.


    What they'd do was rig the computer to continue to pull tickets for a second "added" show that wasn't previously on sale as soon as the computer would let them, which was typically before it would be "announced." For about 10 minutes, it would pull the max number of tickets, and print print print. Once those good seats were gone, the rest would be sold to the public waiting on line. If a customer asked, "What's that noise?" The counter operators would reply, "Bookkeeping and accounting receipts..." and nobody would know.


    So, the TM counter operator now had dozens if not hundreds of GREAT tickets to a show, but his drawer was short. So he'd need to find a way to:
    1. Get the tickets out of the store.
    2. Get the money from the scalper.
    3. Get the money his drawer was short back into the store before his shift ended.


    He'd end up making his rent and spending money for the month on days when a big show was on-sale at the TM Outlet....

    Floor Prices

    The floor prices are ridiculous. StubHub prevented me from setting a price below 32.50, but its pricing engine suggested a selling price of $30. And, I can't give this really great pair away either. Nobody in my office wants them. Tonight is likely my second game this season where the tix will go unused.

    Stubhub appears to be charging 15% fee on all listings made since Monday. Listings that were in existence prior to Monday has whatever fee structure one was on

    Rough Sledding

    I now have had more seats go dead this season than in all of last season. And, I suspect I will need lots of luck to simply break-even on Boston and the Mets. There is usually a bump when school lets out but the future still looks bleak. Anyone else having troubles?

    Same experience here

    Me as well, this rag tag group of fill ins is fun to watch. But, it isn't creating as much of a stir among the casual fanbase. Judge is on the IL, that hurts. There was a huge dip in attendance in 2013 when Jeter was out, similarly.

    I think it has as much to do with the weather as anything. Cold and rain are not good for sales. Fans will come out for stars and/or winning teams. I believe that come June when things warm up sales will be better.

    For what its worth I have friends in Boston who are complaining about the same thing regarding Red Sox sales.

    Do you think that the casual fan has simply overdosed on the Yankees? I mean they've been winning for 25 years now, and the casual fan needs a real reason to go...

    On the flip side - many bargains to be had if one is buying. Legend seats selling for $260 all in for tonights game on Vivid. Over the weekend, with lots of rain Legend seats were under $200 all in

    Exactly. If things continue as they have I probably will not renew my plans and will become a buyer! Watching a game from a cheap Legends seat with occasional lobster breaks sounds nice.

    Just a continuing pattern of declining interest in baseball

    The newer generations aren't into baseball

    Looking to pounce on Legends seats for next Fri game, has this been the norm? Haven't followed much yet this season. Currently they are floating around >$400, albeit with more than a week left. I'm getting less patient in my old age

    Weekend and Tampa. Unless the weather is horrible I would be surprised if the face dips below $300 for legends.

    The Yankees discounting tickets for $4.15, $5.01, etc. hurts the season ticket holder selling weeknight tickets and benefits the secondary market buyer. That has to impact plan renewals. I thought if you buy in volume you deserve the best prices in your section but the Yankees never seem to care and continue to undercut plan prices.
