Bullpen PSLs on EBAY
 
Saw these on Ebay. I wish I had the dispensable jack to pony up, but unfortunately don't, at the moment.
Maybe some Texans fan will snap them up before a broker puts the enemy in those seats every game...

Never priced PSLs...
It is for three seats. Is that bad?

I said before, I think those are the PSL's (the ones for sale) I bought FIRST. Supposedly sold them to a Texans fan, mrph. Schmuck. At least I am in 116 now :)

normal price was 600 a peice per psl, so figure 3 seats. 3 x 600 = 1800.

Odds are though probably won't find them for that low. Take your time. Search Ebay, Craigslist.org and different message boards. You might actually luck out and find some.

Excuse my ignorance, but what exactly is a PSL and what does it give you?

Don't be too hard on people who sell PSLs on ebay.

Otherwise, I wouldn't be in the Bullpen. Had to get them from SOMEBODY...

Although $6000+ is kinda steep. I paid about $5000 for two sets of two.

A PSL is kinda like a timeshare. It's real property that you own the rights to for a certain time... in this case, football season.

You only pay for it one time. But then you have to buy the season tickets every year, or you lose the rights to buy the season tickets for those seats, and the Texans can sell the PSL again.

In this case, being that football season has already started, if he's asking $800 per PSL(3 x $800=$2400) + $60(a ticket)*5(home games left)*3(number of PSLs he's selling)= $2400+ $900= $3,300

So in my opinion, $3,300 would be a fair price to pay, if you don't mind paying a $200 premium for the PSLs(face value is closer to $600)

If you don't mind paying a premium for the season tickets, add another couple hundred or so. $3,500

If you want tickets to the Titans game, and the Saints game, you'll have to pay a premium anyway... I believe they're sold out. But next year, you'll get your season tickets, from the Texans at face value.

Were the dude is coming from with $6500 to sit in the endzone is beyond me.

It's 6500 just for the PSLs. No tickets.

Last year I used it to buy tickets to the North south game and Texas bowl. You get first options on those games as well. I also was able to use it to get all my rodeo tickets before the general public. I was one of the few that had 8 george strait tickets 3 weeks before the general public was even able to attempt getting them. It really does have its advantages.

Let's just say that's about 3 times what I sold them for. Not sure how many 3 packs of 117 seats are out there, maybe it is a coincidence.

This will be my second year sitting in my Texans PSL at the Texas Bowl :)

These prices are to be expected. When I bought my 116 H (two seats) I think I had to pay $2400 (PSL's ONLY). That was after a 2-14 season.

How do you use them to get rodeo tickets? I never got any info on that.

Thanks

Wait...how did you do that? I was told in explicit terms that doing EXACTLY THAT wasn't possible.

I called up there and talked to one of the ticket folk and told them I was a PSL holder and had not gotten my tickets yet. They asked me how many I wanted and the rest is history, I got tickets to 7 different shows. If I knew that that chick band thingy was going to be so big I'd of bought some of those and made some money on Ebay.
