Same here. We were hoping to move to fulls as well. One year too late, i guess. I'm going to be PISSED if I miss a clinching game in the playoffs due to not having the fulls now.


with the money you save on not getting fulls, you can get those playoff tickets :-k

This.


~20 extra games at an average of $30 each =$600. That will get 1 NLDS game and maybe 1 NLCS game. That isn't even in the same stratosphere of up to 2 additional World Series Games.

Sure but that is a single season view. There are seasons you have paid for that haven't gotten you any WS games.

Fair, but if it's going to happen, it's probably going to be in the next 5 years or it might never happen.

If you can find them at face. 1 World Series ticket was selling for more than our entire nights&weekend package for 2.

I'm questioning why I didn't buy the rights to yours. Stuck with a stupid 1/4 share.

Not too many options to upgrade this year without having to pay several more limbs' worth, so we stuck with our current seats. Right now we're on the 1B side, just past the visitor's bullpen and by one of the tunnels (which goes directly out to the main entrance).

I signed up for the waiting list in '04. Finally bought tix in '10, got crushed in the market (I live ~600 miles away) and let them go. Immediately got back in line and now I'm at 33,556.

Crazy...I'm pretty sure I signed up sometime in 2004 and didn't get my name called until before the 2013 season.
