    Such tickets will available at meaningfully lower prices during the season. They have never sold for such a premium.

    Besides, ths team is going downhill. The Colts are going to take back the division.

    Oh lord i wish you would just go blow luck and get it over with Bull.

    Colts will not make the play-offs next season. Mark my words homie, plus its easy to go against what you say cause 9 out of 10 times you are wrong haha

    By "scalpers" you mean those who make items or services available for purchase; such as grocery stores, gas stations, furniture stores, car dealers, restaurants, and topless bars. They are all trying to sell for more than their cost.
    They won't sell on this board or the official board for much of a premium. People here expect to get tickets at or below cost because they are fans or just because. Actual fans who are willing to pay a premium will be found on Craigslist or eBay or StubHub.

    I am not sure what the premium for a full season is, but last year these tickets could be sold on a game by game basis for more than $1400 total - just the hassle of 10 sales instead of one. Even Jacksonville tickets got a nice premium above face. Next year Denver and NE will be big $$$, games against playoff teams Seattle and Indy will do very well.
    I was concerned that Texans might go downhill. But after seeing BullBlitz's post I am certain the Texans are going to the SuperBowl! Excuse me, but now I am off to get a second mortgage so I can go to Vegas and bet everything on the Colts finishing under the number for season wins.

    If a grocer, gas jockey, or furniture pitch man tried to sell me something for 40% over retail you're damn right I'd call them scalpers. I don't begrudge someone making a buck, I'm in sales, but that's just absurd and I hope he fails spectacularly.

    Retail is the price available to general public walking in off the street. Face value for Texans tickets is wholesale price - only available to those who have gone to the effort and expense of establishing a business relationship (PSL ownership or season ticket holder for upper deck) with the Texans.

    Good luck finding goods and services for less than a 40% markup. Most will be over 100%. That $1199 item at the furniture store - they probably paid the manufacturer closer to $300 than $400 for it. (But if the item isn't selling maybe you can get it after they mark it down to $599). It is not all profit - they have to pay salaries, rent, electric, and sponsor Little League teams.

    Unless what you sell it very expensive I serious doubt that your full list price is less than 40% more than your wholesale price. I don't feel that makes you an absurd scalper even though you seem to think it does.

    An offer has been accepted on 2 of the PSLs, so only 2 of the season tix are available now. Price reduced to $1,300 per season tix, or $6,750 for both PSLs, whichever sells first. PM or email me if interested.
