Cubs have the same system as the Red Sox, what I didn't know is MLB gets a cut as well.

Replay is run by a consortium of the Chicago Cubs, Wrigley Field Premium Tickets Inc., Tickets.com and Major League Advanced Media, which oversees Cubs.com.



Slajchert, whose family has had season tickets for more than 30 years, sold two seats to a Cubs-White Sox game in early July, using the fledgling Replay Ticket Exchange program.

The program, offered on Cubs.com, allows season-ticket holders to name a price for their seats, then sells them through Wrigley Field Premium Tickets Inc.
Slajchert's seats, directly behind home plate, normally sell for $65 apiece. Through Wrigley Field Premium, he got his asking price, $780, or $390 apiece.

After subtracting the 30 percent fee, Slajchert was supposed to get a check for $546.

I like how they say the Cubs are going to help in regards to the checks being mailed out, yet it was "supposedly" determined that Wrigley Field Premium and The Cubs were not a monopoly and we not affiliated.

30% !!!
Makes me more and more proud to be a Sox ST holder. That and the fact that my money won't be part of the wast called the Soriano Contract makes me proud to renew with a team that knows how to sign the right players and treat its ST holders with respect.

Red Sox use REPLAY and the contract a season ticket holder has to agree to is insane

Yes, but you can't actually get cash, right? I though that you had to put the balance toward more tickets.

Regardless of what the percentage is, it's much less than the 30% in Cubdumb

I though that you had to put the balance toward more tickets.correct, but as some guys have noted, thier season is already paid for(and some have EXTRA cash). I used alot of my ticket sales profit to fund group outings, which translated to cash for me after i sold the group tickets.
