Tickets from Friend of Friend:

    I know similar questions have been asked, but this situation may be slightly different.

    I have a "friend's friend" that gets 4 contiguous tickets to home games each year. They always give/sell 2 of them to our mutual friends. This year, they are going to be selling their other pairs.

    My friend is brokering the deal, and says that I have first dibs at the tickets. (They want us to go so we can sit together)

    I haven't spoken to the guy with the tickets yet, but they want me to make them an offer on the games that I'm interested. I'm trying to not insult them with a low offer or get ripped of. Hopefully, they cut me a small break since their friend wants us to get the tickets.

    So here goes. In % of face value, what should I offer them for the following games:

    * vs Northern Illinois - 9/02
    * vs Cincinnati - 9/16
    * vs Penn State - 9/23
    * vs Bowling Green - 10/07
    * vs Indiana - 10/21
    * vs Minnesota - 10/28
    * vs Michigan - 11/18

    Also, if you have any recommendations for strategy on my initial/final offer strategy, please let me know.

    I'll give 500 vcash to anyone that helpfully responds in the next two weeks. I'm leaving for Hawaii tomorrow, but I'll make sure to get the checks out when I return. :)

    Check the eBay thread for the going rate of each game...then go a little under that for the "friend discount". The eBay rate is usually a little cheapter than the or other ticket broker rate.

    I looked at that earlier, but those were all auctions in process. Furthermore, they seem to have unmet reserves, so it's kinda tough to tell what the real selling rate is. The "Buy It Now" listings are quite a bit higher (hence them still being listed)

    Is there a way to see what the finished auctions actually went for on eBay?

    Well I check tickets on eBay daily, so I get to see the winning prices or near winning prices.
