The Brett Favre trade means this season just got a lot more interesting for Jets fans. And that means things just got a lot more interesting for StubHub, eBay’s ticket-reselling unit. That’s because StubHub collects a 25% commission on each transaction (10% from the buyer, 15% from the seller), and it suddenly has a lot of deep-pocketed New Yorkers with renewed interest in spending time at the Meadowlands. By our count, that means they’ve just pocketed something like $400,000 in the last day.
Average number of Jets tickets per day sold on StubHub last week: 36
Average number of transactions: 12
Number of Jets tickets sold in last 24 hours: 7,000+
Number of transactions: 2,422
Average price for Jets ticket yesterday: $138
Average price today: $252.83
Too rich for our bloggy blood. If we’re going to watch Brett play in New York, it’s going to be from the comfort of Kettle Of Fish.
