I am a STH of the Blackhawks. The Blackhawks make it really easy to list tickets for games that I am unable to attend--literally 30 seconds if I know the price. As such, I don't list them on Stub Hub.
However, I noticed that someone has "scraped" Ticket Master and listed my tix on Stub Hub for a hefty markup. They are hoping someone buys them on SH and then they will purchase them on TM and pocket the difference. I have mixed feelings about this--on one hand, my tix are being marketed more widely but on the other hand, a scalper is gouging someone else and making $$ off of my tix. What do people think of this?
Here's my idea. I've noticed that there's a lag between when I change the price of my tix and when they change the price on SH. I have tested this and know it to be true. I was thinking of listing the tix on TM, waiting until they are "scraped" and listed on SH and then jacking the price on TM and then buying them for the lower price on SH. Is this illegal or unethical?
Here are some responses to probable questions. He won't be able to replace the tix with similar or better seats because they don't exist in my section for the number of seats I have. He will either have to cancel my purchase or bite the bullet and buy my tix from TM.
