    The price you sell for doesn't matter. BUT that said whatever the technical face would be is extremely high for those seats and a Yankees game it could be something like 800 dollars I know season tickets up there average around 500 bucks over 81 games. (Each game has a separate price depending on opponent and when in the season so this Yankees one would be the highest.) You're almost certainly going to be getting less than that amount.

    There might be a chance that Stubhub won't allow these as they have 'zero' value when you punch the barcodes in. In which case you'd have to sell for cash somewhere like craigslist. You probably want to try and sell them ASAP before the price comes down. See what happens if you list them on Stubhub.

    Tickpick.com is the best resale sight because they don't take a 40% overall cut of the sale like stubhub only around 10%. But you would have to mail the ticket and time is running out for that.

    According to Massachusetts state law, licensed resellers can't sell for more than $2 per ticket above face value...and often, charity/contest tickets have a face value of $0. However:

    Q: Who must obtain a Ticket Resellers license?
    A: Anyone who engages in the business of reselling any ticket or tickets of admission or other evidence of right of entry to any theatrical exhibition, public show or public amusement or exhibition must be licensed by the OPSI.

    I'm guessing a selling an extra ticket to a single event doesn't constitute a "business". And let's be real...StubHub and Ace have been doing business for ages, and sell for way more than $2 over FV - but I guess the argument there is that they're a marketplace, and the individuals who give them the tickets are the "resellers". Either way, there's been no huge "sting operation", and resellers aren't going away anytime soon, so frankly, nobody pays attention to that law.

    However, the other issue is that you have a "freebie" ticket, and there's probably something in the fine print that says it's a "non-transferable" prize. That said, StubHub -IS- the official reseller for the Sox. If the Sox had a problem with resales for your particular charity ticket, they'd probably mark the bar code online, and then when you go to try to type it in on StubHub, you'd probably get an "oh, sorry, that ticket is not eligible for resale" error message. If you don't get that message, you'd have a good argument that you're acting in good faith - after all, StubHub -IS- the official reseller for the Sox. I'm pretty sure they tell STHs that they're allowed to resell on StubHub, just like the Bruins tell their STHs that they can resell on TicketMaster.

    Ok Thanks for the info. What’s the chances of selling it at the game if I strike out at stub hub


    I was able to list it on stubhub. I put the bar code in . Afterwards I viewed the listing . It said’ instant delivery ‘ on the ticket. What does that mean? Will they be able to print the ticket or whatever? I have hard tickets. Just wondering if I will have to mail the ticket still.

    No, you won't have to mail the ticket - it will appear as a bar code on their phone when they buy it, usable either via the StubHub app itself or via MLB's Ballpark app. If/When your ticket sells, it will simultaneously deactivate the bar code of YOUR ticket - whichever one you listed, so be sure NOT to use the seat with the bar code you entered. (Also, if you have seats 4, 5, 6, 7, and you're only selling one seat because you're going with 2 other people, you might want to sell either seat 4 or 7...don't sell 5 or 6. Just sayin'.)

    If you don't sell your ticket and decide you want to use it yourself or sell it elsewhere, you'll have to delete the listing - I think when you input your ticket for sale, your barcode is "in limbo" - if the gate were open now, they'd know your ticket is "for sale", and wouldn't let you in. But you can always delete the listing, unless it's already been sold.

    The advantage of StubHub being the official resale site of the Red Sox is that they can do everything - including deactivation of your barcode, and creating a NEW barcode for whoever buys your ticket. When that happens, the buyer's happiness is no longer your responsibility at all - if the buyer can't figure it out, they complain to the Sox, not StubHub.

    The Bruins don't have this relationship with SH - if you sell a Bruins ticket on StubHub, it's still under your name. The buyer can complain the SH that the seat wasn't as advertised, or that they couldn't get in...and then SH slaps the seller with a penalty. Or, if the buyer gets drunk and obnoxious and moons the Jumbotron - also on you. Not common, but it can theoretically happen with Bruins when you use StubHub (and not their official Ticketmaster resale) - and it can't happen with the Sox on StubHub.

    I have no idea about selling tickets at Fenway. I notice scalpers outside of the Garden, but have never heard them around Fenway - but I don't go as frequently.

    Ok thanks. I will make sure that I delete the add if I decided to keep the ticket that’s for sale . I probably wouldn’t have thought of that.

    Quick question.

    Looking to come up to Boston for their home opener as my brother (also a Devils fan) is moving up into the area for college. I know the tickets will be on the pricey end due being the home opener and a Saturday, but what would be my best avenue to buy tickets without completely breaking the bank?

    Yup, it'll be a pricier one, being the home opener, a (probably) banner-editing game, and a weekend game. Plus, it's our first look at Subban in red and white. (Well...technically second look in rouge et blanc, but first look without the bleu.)

    My big three resale sites are TicketsNow (which lists the same resale tickets as TicketMaster plus maybe a few others - TM itself is fine too), StubHub, and Ace Tickets. You might try SeatGeek if you have a code, but definitely be sure to compare post-fee prices on all sites.

    The good news is, last year, tickets were as cheap as $64 for the home opener. The bad news is that it was a single ticket in the 15th row of the balcony, on a matinee Monday for Columbus day, you had to buy it the day before the game, and it was against Ottawa...so basically, the opposite of this year's opener.

    For most of the games in October-December, the rock bottom price comes either the day before the game or the day of the game, but even the week before the game can be okay, too. My gut tells me that the get-in price will be way less than the $140 that it currently is....but it may not drop until October. For the regular season, tickets are always available - but if weird stuff happens (ie something insane like a Subban/Chara trade), the price could shoot up. You might do well to buy the tickets Friday morning/afternoon and come to Boston that evening.

    Anyone got any info on the love your melon beanies? Lady wants one bad, but I’m a cheap skate and can’t fathom spending 200+ for a pair of corner balcony on a Tuesday against LA.

    Please don't use any of those sites without checking www.tickpick.com first.

    Of course its legit any website selling tens of thousands of tickets per day isn't going to be in business long if they are committing fraud regularly.

    Its a shame so few people know to use it. There are no buyer fees and they only take 10% of the cut for sellers. If you use stubhub the buyer fee is 15% and seller fee is 25% and basically the guy selling you the tickets gets 60 cents on the dollar. Tickpick you get 90.

    You might try eBay a few days after the game if you want the LYM beanie with the spoked B on it. They probably won't sell them (or similar ones) online for awhile, as it's a "exclusive promotional" item meant to get people to buy the tickets as part of the package. The Sox giveaways are almost always on eBay the next day (or even in advance!), and I imagine the Bruins ones get on eBay, too...although the "special promotional package" ones may be more limited in scope than the "free to the first 5000 fans" promos.

    Package itself seems a little pricey - right now LAK tickets are slightly over $64 on StubHub including fees. Add in a $30 beanie, and you're at $94. The ticket price will likely go down...although it IS right before the holiday break.

    You could also just get a beanie from their website at

    Home

    - but it won't be Bruins.

    Yeah i got her a blue one a couple years ago. She’s dead set on getting the Bruins beanie but like you said the price doesn’t add up. I was thinking the eBay route as well and that seems like my best shot at the moment.

    Unless some connections i have in the building come up with anything else. I just haven’t been there in a while.

    Just received my season passes.

    The packaging is really nice, albeit totally unnesecary for what's inside. The lanyards are pretty dorky. The cards are fine, but what will be annoying is that given I go to the games with a variety of people, I'll have to carry both cards, or constantly deal with both the card and the app to get a friend in if my wife holds onto the other card at all times.

    Can't believe Bruins season starts in less than a month. Got some tickets for sale. Seats are now section 313 row 7. My buddy also has 2 seats right next to mine so you can buy 2 or 4 in a row.


    Let me know if you're interested in any of these games. $66 per ticket (face value) so $132 for 2 tickets and $264 for 4.

    Tues, Nov 12 vs Florida (only 2 available)
    Thurs, Nov 21 vs Buffalo
    Tues, Dec 3 vs Carolina
    Tues, Dec 17 vs LA

    I vaguely remember that they had free appetizers set out at Legends one game for first year STHs my first year. I think it was Legends - they might have split it up into smaller groups. The cover charge seems a little nuts when it’s basically just a restaurant. I mean, if you actively want to look like you’re throwing around money...I guess it fits the bill. If you want food, there are better options.

    The box is ludicrous unless you ordered 100 seats - it’s weird that when we paid extra for hard tickets, they basically came in an envelope, I think. New pass? Giant box that would be ridiculously expensive to ship if you’re not retail.
