Default Scalping

I know I'm beating a dead horse but it has gotten plain out rediculous how over priced people are with selling tickets and its hard to get a decent location from the ticket office because all these scalpers have bought up all the good seats. I'm all for making an extra buck but its gotten way out of hand. And isn't scalping illegal if u charge $1 over face value?

It's a full time job for some. I have a business card of a guy who has a website set up and has made a business out of scalping. Not a big fan of it either.

It's only illegal if you get caught!

Seriously, it's out of control. Buy a overpriced ticket and get a free stamp worth nothing.

The only time I've sold tickets is because I could not go. That's it. People selling these Clemson Georgia tickets for up to 400 each, why in the world would you sell your tickets for that game??? I have Florida/Carolina tix, those would sell 200+ you think I'm selling??? Heck no!!!!

In 2010, I was offered $600 for my pair of tickets to the Bama game, I just laughed and walked away.

Its only illegal in front of the stadium. But if you're buying 3rd party away from WB you'll probably end up paying more than
a few extra bucks

I sold two of my Georgia tickets last year and made back more than my club dues. If you don't like it buy them yourself. I wasn't going to use two of mine, my only stipulation was that they go to a Carolina fan. I think I sold them for $250...a piece. The people that got them were thrilled that I sold to them for that fwiw.

At first glance I thought the OP's handle was "Geronimo" and I was hesitant to click on the thread titled "Scalping". Damn it football season needs to hurry up and start.

I take friends and charge them face. Sometimes they are expecting "Free" but I just can't afford to do that. I do provide parking, transportation and tailgate food and adult beverage on my dime, so I give guests royal treatment.

But I don't feel bad about charging face to friends bc even at face they are getting a helluva deal. No PSL fee, nor dues, etc which makes true cost of ticket way more than face.

If you have the money to take everyone for free, props to you. But I don't right now - with kids I need to save for college. But I would not charge a friend more than face.

I agree with this. Don't get to as many games as I'd like because I now have a young family but I have never let them go for more than face price. Often for less and have given them away also.
Those that buy tickets at inflated prices can report the location of the seat to the University and they can trace it back to the original purchaser. If they find out they were scalped the original owner loses season ticket privileges.

I'm not a huge fan of it, but I've done it before. Not necessarily on purpose. I bought 4 tickets to the Masters last year for $200. I brought 1 friend and sold the other 2. I sold them for $1,250. So my friend and I went for free and I still made a good bit of money. When I ordered the tickets I wasn't planning to sell them, but it was on Wednesday and not everyone can just take off in the middle of the week to go. I asked a few close friends and when they said they couldn't make it, I decided to sell.

What I don't like is the people who have no intention of going and still buy tickets to resell at a profit.

I don't sell my tickets but I know friends of mine who do and charge face value plus the seat license fee. Why do you guys think that you shouldn't have to pay the seat license fee? The people in Gamecock Club pay it, so why shouldn't you give them what they paid for the ticket. I think the seat license fee per ticket is $35 or so. So if someone trys to sell you a ticket for $35 over face value, its not a bad deal.
