    Scalping at Carver

    Has anyone scalped at Carver before? Just wondering if I drive over to IC what they scene will be like trying to scalp tix that night. Do you think I can get them at face value? Anyone else going to try scalping?

    Thanks

    Re: Scalping at Carver

    Based on two things, I don't think face value will happen:
    1) The crazy StubHub prices they are shooting for.
    2) The fact that they've got you. If they think at all, they know that you already drove a couple hours for the game. They know that you're not looking to turn around and go home, so they have less incentive to drop their prices for you.

    I'd expect to pay at least $40 a ticket. They know they'll get that from somebody.

    Tickets on stub hub were shockingly cheap.

    Looks like they've dropped significantly from last Monday. Cheapest that day were $55.

    Might get face value or even a little less now.

    If you can pose as a yellow tarp you can have the entire student section to yourself.

    Go to the east entrance. There are 2 guys that set up shop there. Don't spend more than $20 per ticket. They want to make the sale as much as you want to make a purchase.

    It's Carver. They'll let you in for free and give you a pop and a hotdog for your trouble.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Scalping? They are giving away free tickets/pizza to the first 10,000 fans who show up!
