    How much can you scalp Iowa/UNI for

    Hey guys. Need your input while trying to figure out if a 3 way ticket deal would make sense financially for some friends and I. Due to a couple weddings I'm going to miss a couple games this season (UNI and Iowa sadly) so I need to find a way to buy tickets.

    How much over face value could you scalp a UNI and Iowa ticket? In the $1K donor area. Not sure where yet.

    Thanks.

    I assume you're saying EIU = total of $150, so $60 over face value of $90?

    I was in section D $250 area and considered selling my neb tickets last year( I didn't) but similar seats were going for $150 each for where mine were. You might get more than that for seats in a $1000 area.

    I try to be fair depending on who I sell to! If it's ISU fans then I stick with face or even lower to get Cyclone butts in the seats. If it's a Hawk... I jack the price up pretty hard!

    I would skip the wedding on the day of the Iowa game. UNI face value probably.

    My best bet is that you can get 75+ for an ISU-Iowa Student ticket. All depends on where you put it and how willing you are to hold on to it until you get your price. Facebook Marketplace worked really well for me last year.

    Re: How much can you scalp Iowa/UNI for

    Sure you'll make a few bucks off the ticket, but what will you do with the empty, dark void in your soul?


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    Re: How much can you scalp Iowa/UNI for

    What I did last year and would recommend is keep your student ticket if your going to the game, find some sucker on facebook (Girl definatly works best). Buy the ticket for like 50 and then resell it at about 85 bucks. Worked well on a couple of games last year like UNI and Nebraska.

    Re: How much can you scalp Iowa/UNI for

    I hate when people schedule weddings on a football weekend. (Especially the ISU/Iowa game weekend. Even if they aren't football fans, they should at least try to avoid it as much as possible to help accommodate their guests)
    Last year, I skipped a friend's wedding so I could attend the ISU/UNI game. No hard feelings at all.

    I agree with this. I'm going through the same thing. They said they scheduled it for that weekend because it was the only one open for the reception hall. I guess there might have been a reason that weekend was open.

    Back to the discussion on hand. Whatever you do, only sell to ISU fans that plan to use the tickets for ISU fans. Not their Iowa buddies. While this may not get you as much for the tickets, it will make for much better relations with the surrounding fans for the rest of the season.

    On another note. In order to keep JTS cardinal and gold this year, we need everyone's support. So, if you see that any season ticket holder around you sells their ticket to Iowa fans, give them hell about it for the rest of the season.
