I think I've found the answer to my post about selling tickets above face value, but could someone with more legal knowledge than me tell me if I'm right, and we can sell Michigan ticket for above face valve?
 
Sorry for the length of this post, but I want to make sure I don't make a mistake and lose my season tickets for pricing over face value.
 
From UM's Ticket web page:

StubHub - The Official Fan-to-Fan Ticket Marketplace of the Wolverines



The Wolverines' secondary ticket market will now be located on StubHub -- the Official Fan to Fan Ticket Marketplace of the Wolverines.
This exciting new partnership with StubHub! will allow you more freedom in pricing, number of postings and will allow you to reach a broader audience than ever before!
 
Also from the Sate of Michigan:
 
http://www.legislature.mi...objectname=mcl-750-465
 
(2) A person owning, occupying, managing, or controlling a building, room, park or enclosure for the sale of tickets for a theatre, circus, athletic game, or place of public entertainment or amusement, who asks, demands, or receives from a person for the sale of the ticket to a theatre, circus, athletic grounds, or place of public entertainment or amusement, a price in excess of the general admission advertised or charged for the same privilege, or a person, who by himself or herself or his or her agent or employee, offers for sale upon a public place or thoroughfare, a ticket to a theatre, circus, athletic grounds, or place of public entertainment or amusement, for admission to, or for a seat or other privilege in a theatre, circus, athletic grounds, or place of public entertainment or amusement, at a price in excess of that demanded or received from the general public for the same privilege, or in excess of the advertised or printed rate, shall be punished as provided in subsection (6), except if the request, demand, or receipt is with the written permission of the owner, lessee, operator, or manager of the theatre, circus, athletic grounds, or place of public entertainment or amusement where the event occurs. If the owner, lessee, operator, or manager permits, in writing, a charge in excess of the box office price, the permission shall be limited to the sales of tickets at locations other than the box office where the event occurs.
 
So, has Michigan provided the written permission to StubHub allowing the sale of tickets above face value? I need to be sure, so I don't lose my season tickets.
 
Thanks for any help on this.

I sold my tickets for the Minnesota game last year for face value because I had to go out of town...until those plans canceled at the last minute.  I went on Stubhub 60 minutes before game time and bought a ticket for $15 bucks (and printed it and got to the stadium in time to see the band come out).  Gotta love technology!
