Personal Seat License Grief Counseling

The 5 stages of Personal Seat License Grief:
1) Denial- "I can't believe we have to pay off those rich owners."
2) Anger- "Those m*****-f****** greedy ****ing owners are hosing us with this cr*p. They s***. I am never going to another game!" (See other Giants bloggers who are stuck here on Stage 2.)
3) Bargaining- "I never asked for a new stadium. Maybe I can get my mother-in-law to pay the fee and then she'll just give the seats to us when she dies anyway."
4) Depression- I am going to have to pay up for the PSL, the money is going to go to those rich SOBs, and that thought depresses the hell out of me.
5) Acceptance- there are 15 years of people on a waiting list behind me who will pay for these PSL's. Ultimatenyg points out that the seat licenses will be worth more than I pay for them, so it is what it is, next.

I'm a season ticket holder (upper deck sect. 310). Needless to say I'm not happy. However, someone told me that if I purchase the psl this would give me the right to transfer these tickets to anyone I wish...

Do you know if I will be able to sell this psl for a profit sometime down the road?

Yes, that is precisely how they work. We are in section 307. If you are one of the 90% (altho your section is desirable, perhaps not) and your license is 'only' 1K, it will be worth more in the open market, and YES you will be able to sell it to ANYONE. I think that some teams required you to hold it for a year before reselling, but beyond that you will be able to do whatever you want with it. See the links in some of the previous posts... they are legal reselling sites that help buyers meet sellers for a small fee. Worth it because it is more efficient, less slippage and insures protocol with the front office.
