Whether your going to a sporting event, the ballet, a concert, or any other type of ticketed event, chances are you have seen ticket scalpers. In some states it is legal and in the ones that it is not, it is not strictly enforced. It seems like for literally every event, no matter how sold out, someone has tickets for sale. It is these tickets that can bring in hundreds, even thousands of dollars for a scalper.
I have only bought sports tickets one time from a scalper, and luckily i didn’t have to pay too much more than face value to the sold out event. Soon enough there will be scalpers incorporating and unionizing.
