Need some ticket info please
Here is his number: 888-887-4411
Triton is still depressed about the WS ticket market tanking. No worries, he'll make it up on Nebraska fans invading EL.
So call him, maybe...
but what if he didn't just meet him?

Wow, you guys on here never cease to amaze me.
Is he one of the main stay scalpers? Is he the guy with the big gauge earrings?
Over an hour and still no delete, with the site founder on the first reply. I, for one, am shocked.
he kinda looks like this guy
here's a photo him working in his natural environment
Called and got great tickets from Triton for tonights basketball game. Very cheap.
what is the website he works for/runs again? Trying to get some decent tickets for the 12/1 game, would I be best off just getting them now through him or StubHub or waiting till closer to the game?
How much are tickets for exhibition anyways? I'm thinking about going tonight but wasn't sure on the cost.
Edit: I just saw they were available on MSUSPARTANS.com for lower bowl only ($32).

Sorry for the slow response. I was not really that motivated to come into work today. No Baseball, Hockey and basketball is just beginning. It's going to be a slow winter.
Trevor, thanks for responding for me!
I got 2 row 5 upper deck for $20 near center court. She said they had lots of cheaper ones also. Triton: Good job working on how they answer the phone. I knew I was calling the right place this time.

We have tickets for tonight's game (and most of the first 9 games) at around $5...
Tritons employees are the best. Always polite and cheerful. Love stopping by there, not many places have that great cust service. Plus love seeing the MSU center logo/court in the office
I think you must mean the gentleman in the back about to go up to their suite.
I'm still amazed at how you make money. If you don't get the tickets before the general public or donars, and you pay public prices, how the hell do you get tickets or make money? For example, I'm assuming $5 is less than face value for the bball game. So are you losing money there? The game 3 and 4 WS tickets were below face, did you take a bath on those? What about the Nebraska game and other spartan football games?
It's funny, but even in Green Bay at Packer games, most of the scalpers hawking tickets are black dudes. (there's not a ton of black people in Green Bay).
Just an observation. Hopefully that's not racist. Probably is though.
He's not expecting to make any/much on exhibition games when he buys his season tickets. Probably doesn't even consider them into his season ticket costs/profits when he buys the season tix in the beginning. He makes them $5 because you might as well make something off them while the customer is loving a good deal. Hopefully it's a loss leader that leads to more sales when they matter.
I'm assuming he makes most of his money on 3-4 games and tries to stay at least even or not lose much on the others. Which is why when there are huge games the prices seem absolutely ridiculous. He's making up for his previous losses as well as trying to turn a profit.
I'm just assuming all of this.
edit: Also I'm sure the Spartans losing a couple of games and the WS situation probably hurt. Although the Championship Series was probably a welcomed income.

Dont look at what prices are the day of the game. Sure there were some WS tickets that went for face but we dont own any bad tickets. Look at what prices were going for when we first closed out NY and the next 5 days. We also own a suite at Comerica.
Regarding MSU basketball, that is one of the easiest things we do. Sure the first 1/2 of the season is garbage and we lose money on every game but the tickets are so cheap that it is easy to get your money back on 4-5 Big 10 game and then the rest is profit. Of course this does not consider employees, rent etc...
This year could be tough for MSU because the only B10 game worth anything on a weekend is OSU. The weekday IU and UM games will crush prices.
Which MSU football games this year have you actually made money on?
