Buying from scalpers question

Many people buy from scalpers? I may decide to go to the Dungver game, is it easy to get decent tickets at decent prices from scalpers? Hints, tips, or tricks?

They have been known to do police stings at big games to discourage scalping. They arrest the buyee also so be careful.

Go over to Kansas and its legal, just not at Arrowhead.

I didn't know buying was illegal. I thought you just couldn't sell for above face value......

Hang around the entrances to the stadium about 15-30 minutes before kick-off. There are always people selling their extra tickets for face or less.

I don't think the buying is illegal, usually they get the seller for doing business without a license to do so, at least that's how they do it here in the ATL.

scalp
One entry found for scalp.


Main Entry: 2scalp
Function: verb
transitive senses
1 a : to deprive of the scalp b : to remove an upper part from
2 : to remove a desired constituent from and discard the rest
3 : to buy and sell so as to make small quick profits ; especially : to resell at greatly increased prices
intransitive senses
1 : to take scalps
2 : to profit by slight market fluctuations
- scalp·er noun


I would say that, according to number three, if the person is not making a profit off the ticket (selling them for face value or less), then it not considered scalping. You should be alright.

It is not legal in Missouri to sell tickets for more than face value.

I have never had trouble finding a single ticket for face in the parking lot; often below face value. Shouldn't be hard to find a pair for face either.

If you're looking for tickets at face value, can't you order them online and pick them up at the window?

If there are tickets on ticketbastard for sale, they are probably up in mountain goat territory.

In my experience, the prices continue to fall the closer to kickoff you get. If you don't mind missing the first three or four minutes, you can likely find a very desperate seller.

Of course, you'd also miss the pregame atmosphere . . .

Good luck!
