Hi everyone. Pardon me for the long post but I am not sure where to go for this...figured this would be as good of a place as any.
Anyhow, back in 2002 or 2003 my girlfriend at the time put me on the season ticket list. A few days ago, I emailed the Cubs asking them if they could tell me my place in line as I lost my login info. They responded a day later and told me my turn came up last season but since I no longer used the email address associated with the account, I never got the email. ANYHOW, they're going to get a hold of me in the next few weeks and I can purchase my tickets then.
Here's my dilemma: I'm not really able to afford the tickets this season but don't want that to get in the way of the long term...next year I'll be able to afford them. What I'm curious about is three questions:
1. If I were to buy one or two tickets in the Upper Deck Reserved area, how bad of a loss would I be taking on this season if I tried to sell them game by game? I'm thinking it would be a bad loss looking at StubHub. I'm not even looking to make a profit--I strictly want face value. (also, I'm assuming the answer is yes--but would it be pointless and useless for me to purchase just one ticket this year?)
2. Is anyone interested in purchasing the season tickets from me for this season or have a suggestion (other than CraigsList) as to where I could go to sell the entire season?
3. Does anyone have any other suggestions for me? Anything would help.
