Winter Classic Tickets As Cold As The Wrigley Field Ice

Scott Burnside, ESPN.com:

"We could fill Wrigley 10 times over," McDonough told ESPN.com Monday, not long after the ice surface was painted white and a few hours before the Winter Classic logo and red and blue lines were to be painted in.

Ticket demands? Well into the hundreds of thousands, he said.

Remember a few days back, when I showed you a chart on the resale market for Winter Classic Tickets? After George Malik linked to a pair of sloppy articles, I pulled the last 43 sales on eBay. Here's the latest sales:

Face Value Current Average Percentage Markup
$75 $196.75 162.33%
$225 $214.16 -4.82%
$325 $282.65

-13.03%

That's right: these tickets are so hot, you can get them below face value!

John McDonough, at this point I think you ought to be happy you can fill it once.
