Can get from $127 on StubHub. Not bad at all. Much better than our UGA or FSU game.

If the game was a week earlier or later it would probably push towards $200 but Thanksgiving is the most traveled Holiday so most people, like myself will be visiting family.

$350 for a lower level ticket is ridiculous, IMO. Also since ticket scalping is "illegal"I wonder if anyone gets hassled by the law during these sales?

They're not getting hassled if it's through stub hub.

Default Re: Ticket prices this weekend

I never sold tickets for a profit because I always had friends who were in need that I could make my money back. I wasn't about to make money off of my friends.

Now if it was some event that I didn't have an avenue of selling, I'd probably let the free market dictate the price...because I couldn't help thinking I'd sell mine for face and some schmuck would buy mine and re-sell for a profit again.

I had 14 extra uga tickets last year and sold them at face value, almost had 8 extra for this weekend but my buddy didn't click the I ACCEPT THESE TERMS button on the screen the day they went on sale and when he placed the order he got kicked out of the system and by the time he got back in it was sold out. My best gal doesn't want to go that bad anyway so its not a big deal if I find her one or not

Default Clemson Tickets

I am looking for Six tickets for the Clemson game (dont care where they are located) and am seeing tons available around $150 for uppers and $250 for lowers. My question is do you think I should suck them up now or do you think they will be cheaper at the game. I know it was not a rivalry but I was able to buy Florida tickets for $10 outside the stadium and Coastal tickets were free. Any advice or opinion would be appreciated

I sold a pair of tickets, section 307 (west upper) row 11, for $500. $250/each. I have 4 together in section 308, row 33, but I'm using those.

Scalping is illegal. You may as well have gotten online and said that you just stole someone's bike.

Ok, I stole someone's bike.

I never said what system I sold them on - stubhub is legal right? Seriously, who cares?

I honestly don't think you will see too many outside of the game. I could be wrong, however but I wouldn't risk it.

It's really more of an issue to prevent small venues from having one entity hold the majority of tickets, and dictate a secondary market price. This doesn't really apply to football games, though laws usually don't specify their intent that precisely.

False.

There's no federal laws against ticket scalping. SC law specifically states in the section that applies to ticket reselling:

"Resellers cannot request or charge more than $1 above the price for which it was sold by the original seller.
This section does not apply to Internet resellers or people selling tickets from a permanent location (not on the property of an event operator without their expressed consent) who guarantee a full refund (apart from delivery costs) if the event is cancelled, the buyer is denied admission as a result of the ticket, or the ticket is not delivered in time for the event."

Link to state-by-state legislation:

Google is a fun and useful tool for finding things out!

If you think 350 is bad you should see how much Iron Bowl tickets are going for. Was offered $1000 each for my club seats. Promptly declined.

The price on the ticket doesn't indicate the true cost if the person selling is a GC Club member. You have to factor in membership dues, seat fees, etc. Tbe actual cost of my tickets is about $135 a game.

I was going to get SEC champ tickets but could not see myself paying $100 a piece for them. I already attend every home game.
