A friend of mine got masters tickets several years ago in a lottery when they took tickets away from long time patrons. He would go every year for a while. Now he has a guy that buys them from him every year. He uses the money to help pay for his kids college. He makes sure that the guy does not resale them. He used to make the guy return the badges after it was over. Not sure how they monitor entry these days.Honestly...money talks. You know that very well with Augusta National tickets. To those who are passionate about golf, and the hallowed grounds that is Augusta National, there are countless people around the world (waaaay more than there are GT fans) that would never ever sell annual badges if they were lucky enough to be on that sacred list of those receiving them every year. Augusta National tickets are typically considered to be among the rarest and hardest to get tickets of any sporting event. And people on that list are encouraged by the money so much that they risk getting permanently banned from Augusta National if they are ever caught selling those tickets. Yet they sell year after year. Because of money. Granted, there are only 1, maybe 2 games a year that GT fans can sell their tickets and gain a reasonable profit, but the point is the same. And if we do get better and climb toward the ranks of the elite teams somehow, that resale behavior will only get worse.
