Scalpers Going Wild With Bucs TicketsDecember 6th, 2012
As Joe wrote days ago, the Bucs-Eagles game will be shown on local TV. The Bucs made that official this afternoon. But what Joe didn’t count on is what appears to be huge demand for Bucs tickets, so much so that tickets in the secondary market are moving for more than face value.
Joe can’t remember the last time someone actually could “scalp” a Bucs ticket. Even the 2008 “Mike Alstott Night” wasn’t a hot ticket like Sunday’s Bucs-Eagles game, the 10-year Super Bowl anniversary celebration.
TicketMaster.com only has single game tickets available. So resellers like StubHub.com are the place to go if you’re looking to buy two seats together. Joe’s been monitoring the StubHub action today, and $30 and $45 tickets (upper deck on the East Side) are moving for $70 and up.
This is great for the community, and Joe suspects Team Glazer is taking note of the wild demand driven by an event related to the 2002 Super Bowl. While to date Team Glazer seemingly has held firm to keeping Buccaneers Ring of Honor inductees in apparent chronological order, it might be wise to make the 2013 inductee from the glory years. A full house is a great thing on a lot of levels.
