    Scalping tickets in MN becomes legit in August

    [size=13pt]Scalpers go legit come August[/size]

    Got a prime ticket to a hot concert, game, or other event? Well, starting Aug. 1 you can legally resell that ducat for more money than you paid for it. Minnesota is among the last states to legalize scalping. But the new law may change little....

    I can't believe I hadn't heard about this until now.
    I wonder if it will make it so tickets to the GB game are nearly unaffordable.

    Then again...maybe now I can buy season tickets and make most of my money back by selling the GB and CHI games.

    Always has been. Brokers can sell tickets for whatever they want & eBay never really enforced or did anything about all the scalpers on eBay.

    They made it so sellers couldn't sell it for more than what they listed the face vale at, so sellers would always inflate the face value they listed by around 2-4 times the going rate.

    I turned in several of them, but their auctions were never removed. I'm surprised eBay never got cited for it.

    Of course, eBay makes a huge profit off of scalped tickets, so they don't do anything about it.

    Well THAT is complete B.S. Evidently its not that big of a deal, or they probably would have received some sort of citation.
