Best Way to Sell Cubs Tickets...

Postby statsman88 » Fri Feb 01, 2008 9:49 pm

I'm gonna try my hand this year in scalping Cubs tickets and I wondered what the most successful way to sell them was. Ebay? Stubhub? Anyone got some tips?

How about you sell them at face value to your fellow Cubs fans?

I'll co-sign that.

Sections 16/17 have always been my favorite, although the 35/36 range is good for heckling the opposing bullpen.
Sometimes it takes a crazy person to see the truth. If so, I'm a freaking lunatic.

I sold my season tickets on ebay the past four years. It requires more effort than StubHub, but the fees on StubHub are far far far more substantial. The fees on the Cubs' Ticket Replay site are high as well. That said, I may try StubHub for some games this year to see if the fee idffferential can be overcome by selling price and effort savings. My tickets are in section 201 in a good row so they're not always in high demand, which makes sellling them well ahead of time for a good premium difficult and Ebay a little less attractive in that sense.

Scalping= :-t

Getting rid of extra season tix to games you can't make is ok though. ;-D

I have sat all over Wrigley for games and I've never had a seat I didn't like.

I agree, but since I don't get to go much anymore I love to sit in the bleachers when I go. My uncle has season tickets behind the plate and we will switch them out with someone for bleacher seats sometimes. :-D (no we don't charge the person more either, we just switch)

When I first read the thread title, it sounded like the beginning to a bad joke... ;-7

That's usually the case for me too. Last season, I was sitting in either section 229, 231, or 233. The gripe I had about those seats is that there's a an overhang blocking your view. It was annoying when there was a ball hit above your field of vision. Not a big deal, but I get annoyed easily. :-C :-D

Even the overhang can be ok, we went to one game last year where it was like 95 and being in the shade in the upper deck was very nice probably at least 15-20 degrees cooler than the sun, w/ somne breeze too. Then we got some tix, kind of a last minute thing, for the Cubs/ Cards game that got rained out. It sucked but probably not as much as if we had been out in the rain getting drenched.
