    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?

    Good point, taking all the different prices into account, season ticket price, dynamic pricing based on particular game, or how many tickets RU has left, there are at least 3 different prices. John, If you want to enforce your policy and don't want to take into account seat donations, you have to tell us what price to use.

    RU sets the market value based on dynamic pricing.
    All the data is available to anyone looking to buy tickets. If you are a season ticket holder then your face value is cost of ticket plus seat gift. If you are buying single tickets from RU with dynamic pricing then your cost the price on the ticket. The face value should be what is your "actual" cost per seat for each game. My ticket cost is $55 for seat and $35 per seat gift for each game, so the face value is $91.
