    I have had reports of people asking for the seller to shoulder some of the cost of the seller's annual donation. As I always say, if you want to mark up the tickets beyond face value, there are places where you can do that --- ebay, etc. However, on this board, you may only sell them at face value.

    Anyone asking for above face value will be banned.

    I am sorry to take such a hard stance on this, but this board is a service to our long-time guests who would like to quickly sell or purchase tickets at face value. Once donations and other mark-ups occur, the transaction gets complicated. Since we are not in the business of selling tickets and do not wish to be in that business (nor do we know the laws governing it), we don't want to have anything to do with those situations.

    I realize that this policy will not please everyone. I apologize in advance. If you have any questions, never hesitate to email me.

    Is there any way that we can have a post that lists the face value of tickets and parking passes for each game?

    It seems as though the face values of parking passes varies from lot to lot.

    John, given the seat licenses that are now attached to each ticket, i think loosening this policy a little will make it easier for Ru fans looking to be made whole (but not profit) to sell to RU fans!

    Another complicating factor is that with dynamic pricing, there is no longer such a thing as one constant face value. Does face value mean 1/6 (or 1/7) of the price of a season ticket? Or does it mean the current single game box office price, which could be much higher?
