My tickets on average go for double face. Paying a PSL is a one time upfront fee to enjoy going to games at face value for next 30 years or below face value if one sells a few games.
Even if my PSL slowly marches to a value of zero in 30 years. So what I can sell 20 years in get 1/3 back and still have enjoyed all the years of games.
Folks near me feel the same. I actually had better seats in old stadium. My old stadium section in new stadium was LL Prime with a 20K psl.
My wife even commented why do Jets sell you seats for $105 that you can sell for almost $400 for some games. Makes no sense. Guess what she was right so Jets sold my pair of seats to someone new for 40K a pair. Guess what Jets offered me my old seats in new stadium. Same row and everything, I turned them down. Jets relocated me down field to same row in a cheaper PSL and I was happy.
Huge amounts of folks in the LL Sidelines or Mezz Sidelines refused to buy a PSL because they got a free ride for so long. Guy to left of me in old stadium had seats since Shea. Typical Jet fan. Went to first few warm weather games and sold the rest for enough of a profit so he went for free every year. Was doing this for decades. Once someone goes for free hard to get them to pay..
