    I am sorry Singer but i am not seeing where you are getting this notion about people selling their tickets on Ebay at less than face.
    I just looked at all the auctions up for the eagles game as well as all the completed auctions and there is very little of any of what you said.
    The vast majority of tickets being sold are the $19 a game ones in the ozone section.


    Anyone that would sell tickets as of July 1st for a loss isnt using their brain IMO.
    It all depends on where you are going to sit. You have to keep watching & look for the deals. I don't think I'm watching any of those auctions myself right now due to (1) price by some of the sellers & (2) location.

    Just to give you an example, here's a couple of auctions I won;

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=ADME:B:BCA:US:11 &Item=280126156849

    Lions game. Up in the corner, but still in front of the pillars. 4 tickets for $26. Face value: either $78 or $152

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=110136674871

    Atlanta Falcons game. About the 10 YD line. 2 tickets for $49. Face value: Either $134 or $98.

    I also bought those same seats for the Chargers game for $54 & for the Lions game for $32.

    Hey singer,

    Not disputing that you got some deals, however....

    The first "link" you posted is for the preseason game against the Cowboys.
    Of course those are dirt cheap.

    The second link for the Falcons game will be good seats, but those are in the $19.61 ticket section according to Vikings.com.
    Last season, the upper deck cheap seats ended at row 26.
    This year they got moved down to row 25, maybe even row 24 in the end zone.
    So, you pretty much paid box office face price ($25 each) plus shipping for those seats.
    Assuming the guy was a season ticket buyer, he actually made a few bucks on the auction.
    SKOL VIKINGS!

    I don't see these as "great" prices...everything listed for the Eagles game is above box office face price.
    They aren't necessarily horrible prices, but the cheapest tickets are asking $38-$40 for a $25 ticket (which only cost $19.61 bought on the season ticket plan...so roughly double the price).

    Hey, I just figured it out....

    Webby, I think kirbyfan here works for or owns ticketthunder.com....he posted a message on another site saying he had access to a lot of tickets, and to call him at the toll-free number he posted here on this thread...so I'm guessing kirbyfan and ticketthunder are one and the same.

    Yeah but Johan is pitching, should be a great game. I couple time now I've shown up for baseball games late and was able to get really good tickets from scalpors for $20.(behind home plate 15 rows up) that was for a single ticket but still.

    PurplePat,
    I am the owner of Ticketthunder yes.
    I posted on this site that I have tickets available.
    No they are not at face value, I am a ticketbroker and like any business I would be out of business if i didnt make something on them.
    This takes an enormous investment as well as a huge risk, but I am ok with that.
    I provide tickets to hundreds of happy and satisfied fans.
    I dont blame anyone at all if they can get tickets cheaper elsewhere but if you are looking for a local guy who will give you the best prices for tickets that he can and the best customer service then you can look to me.
    I am also offering 10% off for any Viking fans for ANY tickets available on my site, just type in "thunder" when processing your order in the specials/discounts section and you will recieve 10% off your order.

    As far as spam goes, I have not spammed anyone or anything.
    I simply stated that I have tickets, I am a fellow Viking fan, I am offering a discount and that I will do my best to provide excellent customer service and prices on tickets for ANY event including the Vikings!

    Skol Vikings!!!

    Depends on what you are looking for.
    If you want certian seats as some people do, they arent available at the box office so they come to www.ticketthunder.com to get those seats.
    If you arent picky at all about where you sit, then I wouldnt buy from my site at all and would just go right to the box office.
    As far as the mark up...well we gotta pay the bills man!
