    What is your price?

    Seeing all of the postings on here with people wanting tickets and people selling tickets, made me wonder. If you were in possession of 2 EXTRA seats right behind the ISU bench, what would you do with them?

    Just wondering, what is your price for those tickets to the KU game?
    Give them to a friend?
    Would you sell them for face value ?
    Slightly above face value?
    Get as much as you can out of them?


    If you don't think every day is a good day, try missing one.

    Re: What is your price?

    I'd sell to friends at a modest profit. Non-friends I'd try to get nearly as much as i could. I'm not familiar with seats that good so I can't even venture a market value guess for a game like this.

    Say face for those tickets is $65 (I have no clue). Sell them for $100/ticket. This is assuming you are selling them for the KU game. That is the ISU fan price. KU, $400/ticket or not at all. Don't sell them to KU fans unless it's going to fund a trip for your family.

    Stubhub's cheapest is $125 and I have no idea where that is located.

    Re: What is your price?

    I have never sold a ticket to any Cyclone event. I have over the years been a beneficiary of too many free tickets to ever sell one. I always offer them to my friends and my friends' friends.

    Same, I always try to find one of my friends that we always used to go to games with while we were in school and just give them the tickets.

    If that turns out not to be an option, I try and get as much out of them as I can to ISU only. I'd rather keep them than let more KU fans in the door.

    Exactly ... usually look for a HS kid standing outside hilton wanting to buy a ticket and just give it to them.


    But for this game ... to miss it.. someone would have to pony up some cash.

    Re: What is your price?

    It is interesting to me, because this fall I was in desperate need of a close parking pass so I could get my sister to the UNI football game. She was dying of cancer at the time. A person on this site that I had never met, GAVE me a pass for her to use. That meant the world to me. Thankfully I was able to give that person some nice seats to a bball game to help repay that kindness. That gesture was just outstanding!(his not mine!)

    I was able to find some extra seats to the KU game for my neighbor. I bought them from a friend for slightly above face value (these are really good lower level seats, but NOT the kind of seat in my example) and then resold them to my other friend for exactly what I paid. I try to do something like that if at all possible.

    Re: What is your price?

    I generally give them away to other Cyclone fans if I can't make it. But when I'm planning on going it will take a lot to make me reconsider.

    If someone walked up to me for tomorrow's game and said name your price... that would be a tough one. Maybe I should feel fortunate that I'm in a position that I wouldn't feel tempted unless the price got to be in the $500/ticket range. But I'm an "experience" personality type so these events probably have more value to me than many people. If someone said I'll give you $5,000 to go back in time and miss the Okie State football game, I wouldn't even hesitate to turn them down.

    I'd sell my upper deck seats for $150 total.

    I don't care if a friend upcharges me a little for some really good seats, but if I were going to turn around and try to make a profit - that would be douchey. I know that's not what you were doing, but it's happened to us in the past.

    My parents had season tickets to the Chiefs growing up. My teacher was a huge Browns fan and my dad offered him our seats for face value. That ****** then went down there early, scalped the tickets for higher than face and went and sat in cheaper seats. That is when giving tickets to friends/acquaintances for nothing/face value can bite you in the ***.

    Re: What is your price?

    If i had a couple extra laying around... id sell them, if it was someone i know they'd get a better price, but id still want to make money off those tickets. Anyone else? Fair market value, which for those would easily snag a couple hundred bucks each.

    Re: What is your price?

    For this game it should be a minimum $100. Our tickets are about 2/3 the way up in the balcony and I'm not sure if I'd entertain giving them up for $150 each. Win or lose, this is one of those games that will be remembered.

    Re: What is your price?

    To be clear on my purchase, I bought them from a friend for above face value, sold them to another friend (they do not know each other) for what I paid for them. I did not make any money on the sale. I was just able to access tickets from a friend, and yes he knew exactly what I was doing with the tickets.
    I did not explain that very well previously.
    And, I agree the reselling of those Chiefs tickets is a bad deal, does not exactly make a person want to do a kind gesture again for awhile!
