How to Sell Baseball Tickets

By Andrew Smith

There are many reasons why you would want to sell baseball tickets. Perhaps you just can't make it to the game or maybe you just want to make a few extra bucks. There are plenty of easy ways to get rid of those unwanted tickets. Here is how to sell baseball tickets.

Place your tickets on eBay. The website known for its online auctions are an excellent place to sell any and all baseball tickets you may have. If you're selling especially hard-to-get tickets you may find that you can make quite a good amount of money, too. Just remember to put your tickets on eBay a good amount of time before the date of the baseball game in order to make money and be able to send out your tickets in time.

Use StubHub to sell your baseball tickets. StubHub is actually endorsed by Major League Baseball for the selling and purchasing of baseball tickets. On StubHub, you can sell tickets to any game, even up to game day. Since Major League Baseball endorses StubHub, numerous users will see your tickets on the website.

Put your tickets on Craig's List. Craig's List is similar to StubHub and eBay in that you can put your baseball tickets on the website and make a good profit as well. When using Craig's List, though, there is a greater chance that you will have to meet up with the person buying your baseball tickets.

Sell your baseball tickets outside of the stadium. You can do this numerous ways. If you're simply looking to unload your tickets, approach any persons standing in line at the box office and offer to sell your tickets to them. However, if you're looking to make a profit, make a sign that reads “I need tickets.” This is the way that potential buyers will know that you are scalping your tickets. Be careful when scalping your tickets, though, as it is illegal and can lead to serious penalties.
