Eagles tickets lowest ever at the Linc?

Posted: November 21, 2012

Cheep! Cheep!

 What's the strange sound come from StubHub and other ticket resellers?

Why, it's Eagles tickets begging for someone to buy them.

With the injury-riddled team floundering at 3-7, and many fans calling for an end to the Andy Reid era, many tickets are selling below half of face value on StubHub.

"Given the economy and the time of the year, it's as tough as I've seen it since Rich Kotite," said Jeremi Conaway, vice president of Wanamaker Tickets in Center City. And he's been selling tickets for a decade and a half - since a couple of years after Jeffrey Lurie bought the team.

Conversely, for bargain hunters, this could be as good as it gets.

"It's a good time to see Nick Foles and the future of the Eagles," Conaway said. "It's a good time for people who haven't gone, haven't seen the stadium to go. It's a great stadium, it really is."

He declined to discuss pricing, but a check of StubHub showed what a buyer's market now exists.

Remarkably, through the online reseller, $100 could get a family of four into Lincoln Financial Field to see Monday night's game against the Carolina Panthers.

Want a seat midfield in some primo lower-level seats? You could pay as little as $75 each on StubHub.

That's almost the original cost of the worst seats in the end zone's upper deck.

The Cincinnati game on Dec. 13 also has low-priced seats, since it's a Thursday night affair.

In more demand are seats to see the Dec. 23 rematch against the Redskins.

That's because Washington's a division rival, rookie quarterback Robert Griffin 3d is so exciting, and the Eagles will honor former running back Brian Westbrook, Conaway said.

But on StubHub, seats are still available for under $50.
