Ahh...so you were one of the hundreds hammering the site. Congrats on getting the tix. My brother and I tried from different locations and were unable to get through. Really sucks since we were able to make an ALDS & ALCS game, but won't make it to the Series.

Good luck with your sale. I'd say eBay's the best option. Those right field pavillions seats are a lot of fun. Greg and I sat there during the last game the Angels played vs. the A's - when we took first place back. A really rowdy place to sit...

Just sell it on eBay, make back some money, and go to the game for a lot less than the $600 the 4 tix cost you.

yes it will. people do it all the time.

no, you won't get kicked off. their rules specifically state that the seller can cancel the auction at any time. you are required to give a reason for cancelling it...but "item is no longer available" is actually a reason they cite.

Crap.
DTSC, YGM.

Guys, I think we are going to end up selling it to a guy so his 7 year old can go.
We will not make a stellar amount on the ticket.
But I will feel better about it.
Heck, for all I know the guy can be a scummy scalper with a great story. But at least the pressure to sell by Wednesday will be off.

Story (BTW, this may or may not be true)
First:
Chrisedge, I promised to sell to this guy before I saw your email and he was enroute from San Diego to buy it from me in Hollywood when I did see it....sorry.

broadway:
Story (BTW, this may or may not be true, let me just say that AGAIN),
He only got 1 ticket online. Field level. He needed a way for his kid to get into the stadium. His kid will sit on his lap in the field seat.
After seeing this guy this info is shaky at best.

Bottom line: I don't care.
We got $275 for it (Ok, let the mocking of me begin. I SUCK at scalping). BUT here is the deal: by making that we will be going to the series for free. Tickets paid for. That was my minimum. Also, the amount of effort required on my part:
24 hours of sweating this scalping thing:
1 ebay ad, 1 recycler ad, posts here, pleasant walk to nearby restaurant with my husband to make the exchange, counting of money, rescinding of auction, canceling of ad. All about 24 hours to the minute we decided to scalp the damn_thing.
I am done, we have cash and can got to Vegas without drama. Good enough.
I could have held out and eaten my brain for the next 2 days, fielded countless emails and phone calls, stressed about where and when to hook up before I left on my trip, potentially dealt with a deadbeat or no-show, etc. etc. etc.
My Regrets: 1
I didn't offer the ticket to my buddy DTSC. I sincerely feel bad about it but I honestly did not think about it.
So there ya go.
mini
PS: My husband would have been happy to get face value plus fees. He is elated.

PPS: The ebay auction had a top bid of $207.50 when I pulled it.
Thanks again broadwayblue. Your post pushed me over the edge to go and ebay it.
Thanks for the info and encouragement.

Mini, don't sweat it, I was mostly playing. Last minute tickets to LA would have cost me a fortune anyway. And if the tickets were for a during-the-work-week game, there'd be no way I could do it.

Root for the Giants for me though.

Whew.
I was concerned. I was almost your bitch there for a minute.
But no matter HOW bad I feel, I cannot root for those cocksucking Giants.
I intend to lead the right field bleachers in taunts of BAAAAAAAAAARY.
BAAAAAAAAAARY.
BAAAAAAAAAARY.

All games in anaheim are on weekends...

I would have done the same.. make just enough to see the game for free.

mini: you need one more BAAAAAAAAARY for ball four...
