The 68 known transactions in 4 years is bad enough, now you're tossing around a scalper with 50 seats who tried to sell a couple and couldn't get any biters. Scalpers, by defnition, don't cater to diehard Jets fans. They sell seats on a per-game basis to fly-by-night Jets fans and diehard enemy fans who travel to games.
Diehard Jets fans looking to join the PSL family don't think to call their friendly neighborhood ticket pimp to get them.
Your 68 transactions dont take into account how many people have simply stopped paying the Jets and defaulted or turned in their seats.
There isnt going to be a mass exodus in terms of there being 1000 different PSL "options" for sale in the open market online. Furthermore, I doubt there will be a huge drop in the prices of the PSLs themselves simply because there isnt 1 "market" where the transactions take place....they are sold on many differnet sites, in many different ways.
The Jets also may be able to prevent any appearance of an exodus but holding on to the returned seats and distributing them to service members or selling them on a game by game basis which again, wont crush the "perceived price" of the PSL itself, but will hurt the ability to sell those seats on a game by game basis.
Like with the turn of any market, it doesnt and cannot happen overnight....Lets see how 2013 shakes out.
