True but now if you buy tickets to a game and don't want to go instead of eating the ticket it is so easy to resell it. All you do is punch in the bar code to StubHub set a price and poof tickets online. Soon after tickets sold. This all takes about five minutes. 5-10 years ago you'd have to find a friend or sell the around the ballpark. It wasn't easy. Now it is.
