    Blocked out seats

    While buying tickets on ebay I realized that some of the seats could potentially be blocked due to support beams.
    I was wondering what rows the beams block out or any more information on the sight line distributions.
    Thanks in advance!

    I could be wrong but I thought It was required of ebay to have obstructed view seats listed in the ad. I would check with Singer he is teh resident ebay ticket guy or he may just know

    Generally speaking you are safe in rows 26 and lower. Anything above that could be obstructed view.

    True, but if a seller didn't obey this rule, money whores eBay could care less as long as they get their fees.

    Don't buy anything above row 25. Plus the walk up the stairs sucks. Row 15 or below in the upper level is a good spot.

    Could be, but most still aren't. There really aren't that many obstructed view seats. I think there are some near midfield top rows(sound booth blocks like half the field). If a person were to get stuck with such tickets they could easily find another open seat(nose bleeders usually aren't completely full). You could also ask the seller, it should say on the ticket and they would probably tell you to avoid getting negative feedback.

    I don't know if that's true, but many sellers won't list it as "obstructed" as it is.

    The pillars are in row 27, ergo anything in rows 26 & lower you are safe.

    Now there are tickets out there in higher rows that don't list whether they are "obstructed" or "unobstructed view" so the thing to do is ask the seller.

    I personally purchased tix in rows 27 & 28 this year & got them all for under face value. One of the sellers listed his as "unobstructed" & i got those. Others I asked first & when I found out they were unobstructed, I got those as well.

    It pays to ask. I got 4 tix to the Colts game for $78 ($100 face). The rest of the seasons games that I bought off of eBay I paid under face value as well. I'm still in the hunt for GB & Detroit though.

    You got tickets to the Bears and Giants game for below face?
