What is the price on stubhub for a lower level seat for game 3 at MSG?

This according to Josh Elliott at the Hockey News.

Next answer - Donnie D

The question - Who would be selling their ticket if they could get that much?

It's one thing to ask for it, another thing to actually get it.

Completely absurd. Not even a deciding game? Goofy. Why not go for $21 million, some fool would probably bite

EDIT: [from SB Nation] It gets better....

There's one absurd listing for a seat in section 220 that's priced at $100,501.96. ...Things get a little crazier [?!] for Game 6, in which it's guaranteed that the Stanley Cup will be in the house -- potentially to be won by the Rangers. Tickets start at $1,368 but quickly skyrocket, with 94 StubHub listings priced north of $10,000. Twenty-four of those are more than $15,000 and eight are more than $20,000.

The top ticket is again in the Platinum Club behind the net, priced at $29,168.85.

I'd sell that ticket without a second thought if I got an offer for that much.

Default Sure

Sure you would sell but would you PAY that much. Also do not forget the tax consequences of selling a ticket for that much plus be sure to get cash and not a check.

Lazy reporting. Anyone with an internet connection can look up asking prices on StubHub. What are they actually selling for?

Yeah, but anyone with an internet connection can look up most anything that gets posted here. We're just sharing stuff we found amazing, not having a "reporting" contest.

Some people are better at finding specific information. Since that's you, once you locate how much they're actually selling for, hope you'll share it with us

In the meantime, I found lower bowl seats being OFFERED for a considerably less absurd $1564 on vividseats.com, upper level ends for only $814. Hell, I might jet up there myself for that. Not.

At the other end of absurd, here's an eBay listing for "New York Ranger finals tickets" for $5.00 -- and that's the Buy Now price: http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-York-Ran...item462103f5dd

Find the error and report back, or...

Enjoy the Big Apple!

The good thing of all this is it is getting hockey some serious press. The tickets to this Rangers game is blowing up the media in that these prices are more expensive than the Super Bowl was. And it is decimating the NBA resale prices in NY, you have actual seats starting from $750 Game three in Miami? $245 starting

Pick up a print edition of the NYT or the WSJ and you can see the difference just looking at the ads. Patek Phillippe watches, $30k sofas, and other high end stuff you can't even find in Tampa.

So...any idea what was the most expensive ticket actually sold for the 2014 Cup Final? Google still just has the same articles from before it began, so kudos in advance to whoever comes up with the real number. The AVERAGE ticket price in NYC was over $2300, though. Amazing for that to be the average.

What's really amazing is this from Forbes on 6/4:
Quote:
According to TiqIQ, the cheapest Kings ticket for Game 1 is currently $306, which is below the cheapest listed face value for games at the Staples Center. The lowest listed face price is $349; meaning tickets on the secondary market are 12% cheaper than face price.
