Sticker Shock: The Price Of My Own New York Mets Tickets
Holy cow, what was I thinking?
I was looking at my upcoming games to plan my life. Fox moved Saturday's convenient-for-me night game to a 4:05 start, so I would like to sell those on Stubhub so I don't have to cut a beach day short.
Play along with me. How much would you guess a seat in the left field promenade would cost. It's a Saturday against the Giants.
I couldn't believe it. If you told me you wanted me to pay $23 to sit in the uppers to see the first place Mets play on "Tom Seaver Pitches An Inning Night," I wouldn't buy it. Boy did I get sucked in by the new park.
Now I can either nuke my day or take a loss. No way I will get $23 plus Stubhub's commission. Oh well, my stupidity nobody elses.
Let's look at Monday night. Also against the Giants. $10? $15? Nope. $19. I guess I'll use them (You can buy some for $8 on Stubhub).
Someone told me that the Phillies had their 50th sellout. Good thing I bought a Sunday Phillies package (really, I did). I have gone zero times and sold 14 of my 15 games at significant profit. It pays for the Mets tickets.
Want to guess the one game I haven't sold? September 12th against... the Mets!
