I wanted to let people here know that I’m selling a lot of my season tickets - and mostly for Saturday and Sunday games. I’m actually one of those people who like to skip out of work and go to day games during the week as much as possible. (By the way, I'm not sure if I'll show up as a new member in this forum. I post here under “JR” but had to choose a longer name to become an official BM member.)
Anyway, my tickets are Section 536, Row 5, Seats 105-106. The tickets are upper deck outfield, the cheapest and best value seats in the house. I am personally not a fan of 200 level seats because they are (1) more expensive and (2) obstructed by the roof. It’s annoying, at least to me, not to be able to follow a fly ball in the air. The 500 level seats are covered but have no roof obstruction and, because Wrigley is so small, it’s nowhere near the equivalent of 500 level seats at any other ballpark.
More details: the viewpoint is overlooking right field and it is an unobstructed view of the field (i.e., no pillar in the sight line). In addition the seats are high enough that they are not obstructed by people walking up and down the main aisle and they are on the side of the stairs closer to home plate – so that people walking up and down the stairs don’t obstruct the view either. I’m a little compulsive about these things, I don’t like to lose view of the play every time someone goes to get a beer. Oh – and shh – you can typically walk down into those double-the-price 400 level seats no problem.
I am selling the tickets at face value, rounded up to the nearest dollar. So, for example, tickets to “bronze” category games are $7 plus 12% tax, which brings the total face value to $7.84. I’m selling tickets to those games for $8 each. Season tickets are slightly cheaper than single ticket purchases so the Cubs would charge you $8 plus 12% amusement tax plus some sort of handling fee for the same ticket. As you probably all know, the Cubs price the games based on whether they are bronze, silver, gold, platinum or premium and the price rises accordingly. Thus, the ticket price for my tickets ranges from $8 - $32 per ticket depending on the game. In any event, you will pay more buying directly from the box office for single game tickets and risk an obstructed view.
I've listed them below as the full price for both tickets. So the April Brewers games are $8 per ticket (!!) and they are listed below as $16 since I'm selling the tickets in pairs.
I work downtown and live in Lincoln Square so can do exchanges in those areas. The Cubs also let you electronically transfer the tickets for $2 per ticket. If you want to pay that fee I’m also happy to do it that way.
Looking forward to Thursday!
