    Re: Opportunity to buy tickets for 2013

    It's so hard to get tickets to Fenway (especially against a good team).

    When I lived in Cambridge from 2003 to 2005, I would usually go to craigslist and buy a ticket from fans who suddenly could not go. 

    Scalpers were selling $200 a ticket (bleachers) to a Red Sox vs. Yankees game back in 2003 to 2005. 

    Both teams have been struggling so it should be cheaper now.  LOL

    I got the email!  This is 2 years in a row for me.  Got selected for Monster seats last season.  I'm going to get tickets for one of the July Yankee games.  Hopefully, the Sox will not be eliminated by then

    If you are getting a chance to get tickets, you had better get them fast before EVERY game is SOLD OUT again.

    Consider any price to be reasonable at this time or you may not get to see a game live this year. 

    The SOLD OUT streak WILL continue!!

    Thanks ThefourBs.  :)

    One time, my friend and I would take the bus to Baltimore to see a Red Sox vs. O's game. It was easier to get tickets a Red Sox game in Baltimore than at Fenway.   LOL

    Thanks,I'm going to try for the opening day tickets,Monday April 8th,2:05 game against Baltimore.If I get the tickets,this will be the first opening day I've gone to.I'd be pretty psyched about that.

    I'd also like to win the chance to buy tickets on the Monster at some point.That's an item on my "Bucket list".Those seats look like they have an amazing view of the game.Heck,I'd even settle for the "Standing Room Only" on the Monster.

    I've been wanting to go to Balt to catch a game for a while.

    I've heard a lot of good things about the ball park there.

    I do manage to get to a couple of games per year, at Fenway.

    I'm lucky enough to have a friend with connections. lol

    Re: Opportunity to buy tickets for 2013

    My SO & I enter every lottery every year and one or the other of us usually gets one opportunity to buy tickets. 

    I was lucky enough to get Monster tickets one year but by the time I got out of the Virtual Waiting Room (a/k/a Virtual Hell) all that was left was SRO's. 

    Monster SRO's are a fun place to watch a game from but beware when you buy them that you're not going to be able to see the Jumbotron.  The light towers are in the way.

    last season i ended up on the monster when the Nats were in town. hands down the best thing of my life. it was the first time i had been to fenway since i was 8 years old. Just walking around exploring the place and the next thing i know my dad and i are on top of the green monster! stayed there until about the 8th inning then found some great seats on the 1B line to watch Aceves blow the save :p

     

    the view was fantastic though, if i could get images to post properly i would put some up.

    You are not buying any tickets?!?  You should buy the tickets and then sell them for a small profit.   ;)

    Nobody selling Red Sox tickets this year will be able to make a profit. Besides, I have dialogue with the head of the ticket office and one of the Three Horseman.

    Looking on eBay,$28.00 lower bleacher seats are selling for $175-200 a pair for Opening day.That's a tidy little profit.
