One of my favorite days of every March, coming home to find the season ticket box had been delivered.

Only 3 more weeks til Opening Day! :cool:

Hopefully mine come tomorrow, I was surprised there wasn't an email sent out by my rep. Usually Natalie sends one out days prior to the tickets arrival.

Everyone make sure to check your tickets carefully. Had a small issue with my tickets today as I was going through them. My rep said they're swamped this week and they've had some incorrect tickets go out.

I've had my 14-game plan tix for a couple of months now. I wonder why the timing is so different, is there that much jockeying for position and trying to get upgraded among full season ticketholders?

If I'm not mistaken 14 game plans are printed on regular stock. Partial and full season are printed with the pictures and stuff on them. I bought a weekend plan and ordered additional tickets as well with that order. The additional tickets came in over a month ago but still waiting on my partial season tix.

I assume full seasons are still being completed by an outside printing company. The smaller 14 game plans are printed by the ticket office on the regular ticket stubs you get at the gate.

Is that how your tickets look, regular box office type or are they the fancy season ticket prints?

Different format for the full season tickets this year. The 81 tickets for each seat are bound as a spiral book, instead of glue binding.

I saw a photo of the media guide during spring training and it was spiral bound as well.

Got mine yesterday - so excited to hand them over to the other two people in my ST group who will each take 40 or 41 games, and buy my tickets on Stub Hub. Hey, you can't say I'm not supporting the Sox - I'm still a ST holder!

Nice. I didn't realize that STH could use Lot G--that's the best parking lot there is, in my opinion. Easy to get to if you're coming from the West, easy to get out, and right next to 35th Street Red Hots (though my gluten-free diet can't exactly handle that anymore... :whiner:) It's strange that the green passes only get you to Lots F and L (?) when G is in a much better location...for me, anyway.

You're really not using any of your season tickets? Where are they?

145, Row 21.

Yeah, last year was the first year I decided to take none, because I got so screwed on having to eat so many of my 27 games the year prior. I still went to 15 last year, all lower deck, and paid so much less on Stub Hub it was ridiculous.

But if you want a piece, I'd happily let them know.

In the future, perhaps. Thanks for the offer. Assuming I keep my steady job/income part of me would like to get at least a partial plan sometime in the next decade, but I struggle with the same thing--it seems so much cheaper to do it on StubHub. I can see how the convenience of being in the same seats and the sense of belonging to an exclusive club can be an appeal, but in this market it doesn't seem like that great of an investment.

It's not, and the great thing is my name stays on the account, technically making me the actual ST holder from the Sox' eyes, and I can get back in whenever I want.

Also, I'm not even sacrificing playoff tickets, since ST holders get the presale option.

No tickets again today :(:. Have any other 27 game holders received theirs yet? Getting a little worried now because in previous years I usually get mine on the first or second day that other STH get theirs.

I received my tickets Monday and was ripping and sorting them all last night.

I have a 4 seat full season ticket plan that I have been splitting with a few other guys for many years. Opening day is purchased by me (as the plan owner / coordinator) and the other 80 games are drafted over five rounds with the draft order reversing each round. Its always a lot fun.

The selection process should be more interesting this year. In the past the first ten picks were so predictable - Cubs, Red Sox and Yankees tickets always went first. It should be different this year as the Sox assigned 9 different price points to the platinum box seats. The Cubs tickets are now $110 each so I would not be surprised if they last a while. Some weekday games are as low as $42 per ticket. The Red Sox and the Yankees aren't what they used to be and their games are all on weekdays. And the Sox schedule doesn't have any "marquis" summer weekend series against higher interest teams like the Cards, Giants, Nats or Brewers etc. Our interleague games are the Marlins and the Mets...yuck. Not really an exciting schedule this year.

And the Braves. Not a bad draw.

This could be the first year that season ticket holders lose money when reselling the cubs games. At least there are only two games. The only game that will definetly sell for a premium is opening day and maybe Elvis Night since it is AJ's return to the Southside. The Marlins series would have made for some interesting games but we all know what happened with that team. The other wacky thing about this season is that there are only two Saturday night fireworks scheduled including one in the middle of September.

My 27 game season tickets arrived today. Have Premium Upper Box seats - interesting that my Sunday ticket prices are $13 or $14, Saturday prices are $22 to $26 and the Tuesday nite Cub's ticket price is $63. Way overpriced for the Cubs game, have never had ticket prices that high for my seats.

Arrived! Nice book of tickets I may just have to print them out. Did anything else come in the package besides the box with the books of tickets? Just wondering be because my box had a rather large opening in it.
