CHICAGO (CBS) — If you wanted to go to Game 7 of the Stanley Cup playoff series between the Blackhawks and the Red Wings, you had to get ready to shell out plenty of money, or gamble that there will be some tickets left for a bit less at the 11th hour.
WBBM Newsradio’s Steve Miller reports Game 7 is make-or-break for the Blackhawks, and it’s meant a real turnaround for ticket brokers, with front row seats on the glass going for $1,000 apiece or more this morning on ticket broker sites. Some resale sites were listing front row seats on the glass for as much as $3,750 each.
“And personally, I don’t think it’s the best seat in the house. Unless you’re in the curve in the front row, to me it’s a terrible seat. It’s an ego seat. That’s an egotist’s seat, we call that in the ticket business,” said Steve Buzil, of Sitclose Tickets.
