Season tickets just came in the mail today, they look pretty sweet this year. Happiest day of the month for me, anyone else get theirs yet?

These threads exist merely to make non-STHs jealous.

Mail(USPS) or delivery service?

My favorite day, too.

Mine usually arrives via hand delivery. Since the players are in Arizona, Brooks brings it over and we do lunch.

Mailman arrives right after Skilling is over on the Noon news.....Cripe, I haven't become my father, I've become my grandfather.

They have arrived! Glad to see they are using players pictures this year. Included are Thornton, AJ, Rios, Pierre, Buehrle, and Pauly. Funny kind of matte finish (as opposed to glossy.) Hope it doesn't make them too easy to counterfeit.

Ok, I have a major complaint.

The bind the tickets into the book in the wrong order! The ticket that is at the binder is the earliest game on the "page." It should have been done in the other direction so you don't have a loose page once the first game on the page is removed.:angry:

You got a blem apparently. I have the full season and they are bound on the side that has the later dates.

Sorry to hear that ewok.

This will be my 6th season as a full season ticket holder in Section 158 and I've enjoyed every year down there.

This design is significantly different than the past several years. I wouldn't say it's better or worse, but it's nice to have something different.

Roylestillman, and anyone else who's posting pics of their tickets, should hide the barcodes. All someone needs is the barcode to sell your ticket on Stubhub.

Jealous. Am a full season holder in 116, but, haven't gotten mine yet.

Out of curiosity, for those who got lower box, what are the printed ticket prices on the 4 different price levels (regular, prime, premier, and cubs)? I have a few people that are grabbing a couple from me and am wondering what the STH face is on them.

Hey neighbor! (I'm in 115)
34/37/48 (I'm working off memory, but if I'm off, it's by $1.00) Cubs are the same as Premier.

Thanks!

Good to see a fellow WSI member nearby! How's the area around there? This is my first year in 116 as I was previously on the other side in the high 140's, but, requested a change as being roasted to a crisp every game was just getting too much to handle.

You'll get a lot of foul balls. What row are you in? If you're in a low row, get out of the way of fouls hit by lefties (they are screamers), but ones from righties are usually not coming at you at a hand-breaking velocity.

You'll get shade at day games. Great views of fireworks and all the scoreboards.

On the downside, you'll get the singing beer vendor.
