Saturday's game is experiencing explosive demand. The Mets have released all the Standing Room tickets and get-in for a seat is approaching $100 to see the Red Sox
10 game plan holder here and my rep also said it was public strip pricing. What I found weird though was that a few weeks ago when I inquired about getting the rest of the season to secure full strips, he told me it would be partial plan pricing for that. So either they changed course on that as they're going the same time as 10 game plan holders or there's going to be different pricing for the two groups.
Regardless, I'm happy that I'm at least getting a chance at a full strip. I think demand is going to be through the roof so whatever games I don't go to, I'll get my money back plus some. My rep has kind of dodged my questions about 10 game plan renewals for next year so who knows where that stands. I may jump to a 20 anyway to try and get better playoff rights for next year. Plus, the price jump isn't that high. Marquee games are cheaper for 20 than my 10's were this year, Premium and Classic the same, Value more expensive. I paid $335 a seat in Prom Box for 10 games this year and that same plan for the 20 game Saturday would be $586. Probably more loaded with April/September games which explains the somewhat cheap price but I'd like to position myself better for the playoffs next season. Knowing my luck, the 20 gamers get what the 10 gamers get this year and only the 40's and fulls get strips at plan pricing lol

What about the people who picked up pro-rated 20 game plans (ie 17 games)
Cannot make the game and am looking for one (1) '86 Orosco bobblehead they are giving away on Saturday. I can offer one of the following in a trade:
2012 Seaver bobblehead
2012 Alfonzo bobblehead
2013 Gooden bobblehead
2013 Franco bobblehead
2014 Nolan Ryan bobblehead
2013 Home run apple coin bank
2014 Shea Stadium canvas print
I will throw in a 1962 Mets t-shirt they gave away earlier this year if you'd like.
I might be able to get a hold of a 2011 Ike Davis bobblehead if you care about that
for some reason.
Private message me and we'll see what we can arrange.
Typical Mets, trying to milk this weekend for every penny rather than thinking more long-term about getting people excited about the team and getting people to come to the ballpark.
How about getting SRO crowds at regular prices, and have them run down to the ticket offices to buy even more tickets to future games?
The one thing that I like about the Yankees policy is that basically tickets to the Indians cost the same as the Red Sox or Mets. Their attitude is that you are paying to see the Yankees , not the visitors.
That is why steerage tickets last year for the subway series in the Bronx cost $58 on a Tuesday night, and $146 in Queens on a Wednesday night.
As Ralph Kramden said "Be nice to the people you meet on the way up, since you are going to meet the same people on the way down"
Yankees Way = Incentive to renew in a stupid way & makes people angry
Rangers Way = Same Incentive to renew and everyone is happy.
