Uh huh.... "Error"... and this cannot possibly be planted by StubHub to generate web traffic

Do you go to the game for $6 or turn around and resell for 15000% profit?

$759 isn't "list price". List price is what is on the ticket, set by the vendor (Red Sox). $759 is aftermarket scalping.

Major League Baseball. $759 is aftermarket scalping. (at least that's what they want us to think)

There's a minimum fee, every ticket does not have a 50% fee

While you're at it Stubhub, please clean out the $89999 tickets and other typo/bot errors.

It's really not far off from that, though. Stubhub is a complete farking ripoff. If you live in an area with an even somewhat active Craigslist user base, you're a fool if you don't get your tickets there. Stubhub isn't quite as bad as Ticketmaster, but it's close.

Sports robot Darren Rovell is saying this ticket sale has been canceled. Haven't seen further details

Yeah, with Craigslist you can get your arse reaming in person... if you know what I mean.

Yes they are. $49999 for standing room only tickets at Game 3 at Busch?

Those are all over the place on Stubhub. How'd you like to pay $10,000 for a front row upper deck seat to a Penguins/Predators game next month?

Makes their drop-and-drag bar for the price range useless.

They aren't errors. They are placed that way by sellers for various reasons, but it is entirely intentional on their part.

Normally the reason is "I really want to go to this game, but hell, if someone is going to pay me $50k not to, I'm cool with that."

Still too much for a baseball game
