I'm in the very front 200s and I struggled to get back face (after fees) for most of the first half of the season. In the second half it picked up and I was profiting nicely on weekend games, at least. Weeknights were still nothing to write home about.
Nevermind that the seats are basically the same as the back field boxes. People just don't realize it.
If what you're saying here is that your seats are better than joe schmoe thinks they are because of their positioning, I'm riiiiiight there with you. Which is why I want to move to the bleachers. The rubes overpay for those, and when I want to go to a game to actually enjoy it, I'll swap them out for grandstands day of.
Same thing happens with my IF UF Box. Those are awful seats in just about every stadium except Wrigley.
Yeah, the UD Box are some of the best seats in the house, but you certainly pay for them. In our group, we have 2 there and 2 in UD Reserved. The UD Box are more than 2x the cost for almost all games and usually sell for around face, whereas the UD Reserved sell for well above face (when the team is good, obv.).
As for the 96%, maybe it's a total dollar value thing that is some BS math? Say a great 1st level ticket is face $100 but sells for $300 and a UD Reserved is $20 face and sells for $30. That's a total face value of $120 and resale value of $330--that's a 175% over face total, right?
