FKing Season Tickets – Year Two ← FREE KRAUT!

FKing Season Tickets – Year Two 149

All,

I just got off of the phone with A’s Season Ticket services, and (as you’d expect) the deal is marginally less good this year. Last year, we paid $1897 for 22 games ($86/game) in section 110 and a day in a suite. This year, the quote is $1945 for 24 games ($81/game, announced as a 107% discount over face value) and we are talking sections 122, 123, 111, and 112 (they’ve distinguished between MVP infield and MVP, and don’t sell this package for the former). The additional offers are 2 free infield (not MVP infield) tickets to an early-season game and a suite for $200 ($11/ticket) instead of the $1500 “normal” price. The ease with which we can transfer tickets between games stays the same.

So the question is whether people want to do that. This is obviously not the same level of deal as PTBNL’s seats (what’s the deal with those, btw?), but I enjoyed doing this last year and would be willing to organize again this year if we have enough interest to absorb the full package.

We need to move pretty fast on this, since I’m so late in the game on calling the A’s, and they never called me, but let me know if you are interested, and for how many games. Please also indicate whether you’re willing to commit now, or just tentative.

Headcount:

  1. Nevermoor – 6
  2. FSU – 3 (PAID!)
  3. Aardvark – 1 (PAID!)
  4. Poppy – 1 (PAID!)
  5. Oblique – 3 (PAID!)
  6. Ed – 2 (PAID!)
  7. DFA – 2 (PAID!)
  8. GM -2 (PAID!)
  9. TDF – 1 (PAID!)
  10. Vignette – 1 (PAID!)
  11. Brian – 1 (PAID!)
  12. 5Aces – 1 (PAID!)

If these quantities are right, I think we’ve used our 24. I just paid the A’s, so feel free to fire away the paypal (my screenname at gmail). $81/game for the two tickets. We can figure out whether to take the $200 option on a suite, and how to dispose of the free tickets, in the next thread.

If there are still people wanting in, note that this includes a bump up on FSU and Oblique, based on their comments so there is probably room for some reassignment, but that’s up to the people listed above. I want my ten tickets.

Like last year, we’ll do game scheduling in another thread since it maximally flexible (we can double up on games, move however we want, etc.). Just to get your juices flowing on that subject, I requested (1) all 15 premium games; (2) all 5 other fireworks games; (3) 8/17 and 8/18 Indians games, which includes the Yoennis Bobblehead; (4) 4/27 Reggie Bobblehead; and (5) 6/29 Coco Bobblehead.

    I’d be in for 2 games again this year.

    I’ll check in with my front row friends, but at $74/pair that’s the way I’ll likely be going this year.

      Indeed. I’d definitely like to do that once, but the flip side is flexibility.

        Yes, the flexibility of the nevermoor package is appealing.

        Last year they were $74/pair + $9 for the VIP parking pass (waived on free parking Tuesdays and good for general parking at any game).

        I don’t know how much the 81-game package costs this year, but whatever it is they’ll be sold at face to genuine A’s fans only because these are good people.

        • DFA DFA Jan 24,2013 9:29 pm || Up

          I thought they were that individually. Are they still looking to unload some of the games?

            I’ve just checked in with them again about our previous request to buy in for ~30 games – we’ll see what happens.

            • Poppy Poppy Jan 25,2013 12:43 am || Up

              Cool… I’d definitely like another game or two in those seats if they’re available again…

              • Englishmajor Englishmajor Jan 25,2013 2:29 am || Up

                Yeah, I would buy two or three games in those seats, even if I couldn’t manage for one of them to be the division-clinching game this year!

                Still looking into coming down for a game Labor Day weekend – probably that Sunday, and would be interested if they are available.

                A soliloquy of fresh-sounding ideas which would probably be disastrous.
    • vignette17 Jan 24,2013 9:54 pm || Up

      I’d be in for two sets of these if possible.

  3. dmoas Jan 24,2013 4:48 pm

    I’d be in for half a game as long as someone else pays for that half and also shows up for it too.

    • lynnzgal Jan 24,2013 11:56 pm || Up

      LOL! I’m in for one and a half, then. ;)

  4. Poppy Poppy Jan 24,2013 5:15 pm

    I can commit to one game, perhaps two. One for sure. And thanks for being able to facilitate this again… :)

    I can commit to 2 games, and I might be in for up to 2 additional games (2 tix each game). Thanks, NM.

  6. 5Aces 5Aces Jan 24,2013 5:26 pm

    If we get to the point where we need one more Im in, but I also wont take it away from another if the demand is there (I flake too much..)

    110 to 111/112 is an upgrade, isn’t it? Or are they moving back from the field too?

    I’ll commit to two games if new members are invited. It’s two seats per game?

    • nevermoor nevermoor Jan 24,2013 6:08 pm || Up

      Actually yes. Yes it is.

      "There's never enough time to do all the nothing you want"
    • nevermoor nevermoor Jan 24,2013 6:08 pm || Up

      And yes, new people definitely invited. And yes, two tix/game.

      "There's never enough time to do all the nothing you want"
    • ptbnl Jan 26,2013 1:59 pm || Up

      Has something changed, because the A’s website says 109/110 & 124/125.

            You know me: “come for the freekraut.com, get stuck with the freekraut.net”. Seriously, though, I have no idea what happened, since 111 is a special section to me so I don’t know how I would have messed it up.

            "There's never enough time to do all the nothing you want"
            • Soaker Soaker Jan 26,2013 3:02 pm || Up

              Yeah, 111 is nice, that’s the section where some of my bleacher buddies and I had a ~20-game plan for the 1988-1990 World Series teams. We initially bought that because we wanted ticket priority for the 1987 All-Star Game and hung on to those up until the 1994 work stoppage.

              • nevermoor nevermoor Jan 26,2013 3:38 pm || Up

                We probably sat very near you at some point. My dad’s firm did season tickets in that section at the same time.

                  It worked out very well for postseason tickets for 88, 89, 90 and 92. I forget how our ticket sharing system worked, and I wasn’t the coordinator, but I know I went to most of those postseason games and always in decent seats, never exiled to Sec. 302. I distinctly remember being right behind home plate in 117 or 118 when Roger Clemens was ejected in Game 4 in 1990.

  11. vignette17 Jan 24,2013 9:56 pm

    I’ll take one set please. Thanks for organizing!

    But if ptbnl is unable to get the nice seats, I may be interested in more.

  12. nevermoor nevermoor Jan 25,2013 9:55 am

    So by my count we are at 15-19 games out of 24. Six or so is right for me, but nine is a bit rich.

    Still, it looks like we are close enough that I should just lock ’em in. Are people willing to pay for the games they are committed to relatively quickly?

    I have a sentimental attachment to section 111, but that doesn’t need to drive default placement, so feel free to sound off here about whether you want the default to be 1B or 3B side.

    Finally, we need to decide what to do with the two freebies. I’m thinking the fairest options are to do a random draw among people buying tickets who would use ’em or to see if someone wants to buy them at season ticket cost. My understanding from the phone call is that they must be used in April/May.

    "There's never enough time to do all the nothing you want"
    • ptbnl Jan 25,2013 9:58 am || Up

      Can we wait until after the weekend in case I hear back from my friends, or are you trying to lock in before FanFest?

      If this is His will, He's a son of a bitch.
      • nevermoor nevermoor Jan 25,2013 10:47 am || Up

        I think our seats end up better if we lock in early. We can definitely wait to lock in specifics, particularly for people who are waiting on things like your tickets to decide, but I also don’t want to carry the entire balance for too long.

        "There's never enough time to do all the nothing you want"
    • FreeSeatUpgrade FreeSeatUpgrade Jan 25,2013 10:22 am || Up

      I’d add one game, making it 3, if it was available/desirable to make the group purchase work.

    • Future Ed Future Ed Jan 25,2013 12:02 pm || Up

      Sure I can pay relatively quickly. Same pay pal apologies in advance.

      I have $5. No I don\'t.

      • nevermoor nevermoor Jan 25,2013 1:03 pm || Up

        Oh that’s fine. I’m more worried about people not deciding until April. Though, of course, people in a position to pay sooner should do so.

        "There's never enough time to do all the nothing you want"
    • Poppy Poppy Jan 25,2013 1:55 pm || Up

      1) I can pay now (for either one game or two, depending on if you still have too many leftover games).
      2) I don’t care about which section, because they’ll both be sunny during day games, so I’ll want a night game regardless.
      3) I don’t even use my own “freebie” tickets, so you don’t need to include me in drawing or whatever you decide to do to handle those.

  13. nevermoor nevermoor Jan 25,2013 4:31 pm

    Payment made. Fire away with the paypals, and I’ll update you above.

    As I said below the list, people are welcome to agree to swap tickets, but those are the people currently getting ’em.

    Sent… and what are they calling premium games? Giants, Yankees, fireworks, and who/what else? Not still Red Sox, are they?

    There's a wild thing in the woolshed and it's keeping me awake at night.
    • nevermoor nevermoor Jan 26,2013 12:08 am || Up

      Here’s the list.

      Opening night, SF, NYY, STL, CHC (on the 2-4 of July), and BOS. The reason to pick them is that it is free to exchange off of them, but not onto them. And picking them initially doesn’t change the package cost.

      "There's never enough time to do all the nothing you want"
      • Glorious Mundy Glorious Mundy Jan 26,2013 8:43 pm || Up

        STL seems like a stretch.

          Yeah, not sure I get the relevance…

              boooo that, btw… I promised a Giants fan I’d treat her to a game, and also promised Poppy Jr. he could have my tix for whichever of the Giants game(s) I didn’t attend. But there’s only one game in my plan, so someone’s getting denied.

                Front row seats may yet be your salvation.

                Even if a bulk-buy isn’t possible (and I’ve been promised an answer this week), individual games as available should be.

                  Those tickets would be the perfect way for me to celebrate the confluence of (1) weekend game; (2) vs. CLE; (3) with Yoennis bobble.

    I’m late to the party, but if people are looking to downgrade the number of games that they are committed to, I’d take a pair.

    The free ticket voucher has arrived. Here’s the deal:

    ST purchasers have until Friday to reply to this comment that they would use the free tickets (remember, it’s infield not MVP, and must be used in April/May). I’ll then do a random drawing weighted by the number of tickets you’ve paid for. Winner gets ’em, and can do whatever they want (use/sell/whatever).

    I won’t use them, so I’m out.

      Yes, I would use ’em, I’m in.

      I’m in.

    • aardvark Feb 4,2013 12:03 pm || Up

      Ok, given the below comment, I’m in!

    • oblique Feb 4,2013 4:28 pm || Up

      I would use them.

    • ptbnl Feb 4,2013 4:30 pm || Up

      I’d use them. Although my weight in the draw is formally zero, I’m relying on quantum tunneling to bring ’em home.

      If this is His will, He's a son of a bitch.

      I would love to be part of the drawing.

      I will figure out the paypal soon, doing in limines

      Congrats to FSU.

      Everyone who (1) paid and (2) requested this got an email with the results (as a “draft order”).

      FSU: email me a mailing address and I’ll get the certificate in the mail.

        The first pick went to “N/A.” What does that mean?

        • nevermoor nevermoor Feb 11,2013 10:02 am || Up

          It means that the only website that I found allowing multiple teams with the same email address had a minimum of more slots than there were participants.

          The normal verifiable tools require unique email addresses.

    Also, some details on the voucher: it excludes 4/1, 4/13, 4/27, 5/18, 5/27, and 5/28. You need to take it to the box office or ticket services to redeem.

    Reply above if you want it

    I’m 100% certain that DMOAS was hoping for a different seatmate when he posted. :D

    I won’t be purchasing any of these awesome tickets, after all. But thank you, nevermoor.

    • nevermoor nevermoor Feb 4,2013 11:50 am || Up

      Sorry, misread that.

      Then I’m showing +1 for Aardvark, and 1 available (that I’m happy to take).

          How should I get you money? I’d prefer to mail a check.

          • nevermoor nevermoor Feb 15,2013 11:23 pm || Up

            If that’s what you need to do, it’s ok. My preference is paypal, but either is ok.

            "There's never enough time to do all the nothing you want"
            • aardvark Feb 15,2013 11:42 pm || Up

              None of my payment options are current with paypal and that’s how I’d prefer to keep it. Email me (use my @eccentric address rather than yahoo) your address and I’ll get it to you.

    • dmoas Feb 4,2013 11:51 am || Up

      I think most people 100% missed the joke of buying half a seat that I wasn’t going to pay for or show up for.

  25. FreeSeatUpgrade FreeSeatUpgrade Feb 4,2013 3:51 pm

    I unstickied this post from the front page, to enhance my chances of winning the April voucher freebie…I mean, to allow more current and active site discussion to percolate to the top. Damn this lack of a strikeout text button!

    All,

    Just a reminder that you need to have paid to have a shot at the free tix (and even if you don’t want ’em, paying is nice)

    If it hasn’t already been suggested, can I throw a suite date suggestion out there? Like Sat. 6/29 for the Coco bobblehead?

      I’d like to get everyone paid before we make that decision, ideally, but I certainly don’t object to doing it on a giveaway day.

    This is a preliminary feeler post to see if anyone would be interested in 4 pair of season tickets, or 2 people for 2 pair, etc…
    There are dates that some have already expressed interest in, so date availability will be somewhat limited.
    I have not purchased the tickets yet, but will be most likely doing so on Wednesday.

    The plan is for the Fielder’s Choice package for Field Level seats, I’m looking to get two seats in the shade in sections 119-121 rows 26-31.
    There will be some flexibility for sure amongst those already in, just trying to gauge interest for now.

    Reason for the availability is one of the original buyers has had to decline as his business is looking like it’s about to fold this month and can no longer commit to the expense… :(
    AV has expressed interest in 2 games, so that leaves 4 games at present, but there’s potential more in the future possibly.

    Friendly reminder to Ed / 5Aces.

    Let me know here (or my screenname at gmail) what works best for you. I prefer paypal, but a mailed check is ok too if paypal is the issue.

      S’ok. Three trials is a damn fine excuse.

      The interest rate is one kneecap/week from here on out though…

    And we are all paid. Thanks guys.

    Sounds like STs are shipping out about now, so when I get ’em I’ll post ’em and we can start talking specific games and suite dates.
