Totally get where you are coming from Jason - and that is one reason that I am selling my PSLs for less than the vast majority of folks out there. I went to www.seatsandsuites.com/
and other PSL broker sites, saw what people were asking and priced my three Club III seats lower at $2225 each.
Will I sell them for that? I don't know but Club Seat PSLs are an upper middle class to rich man's game. The main reason I am selling mine is that I don't live close enough to Charlotte that it is worth my time to give up my whole Sunday for a game. I would rather tailgate at college football games if I am going to hit the road. When I lived in Rock Hill, it was a total of five hours out of my day - now it would be more like ten hours and I'm not going to do that very often.
The next-to-last factor in this whole mess is how good will the Panthers be in the next few years. They definitely have the QB and that is by far the biggest piece of any successful franchise. If they start getting really good, it changes the market. I remember when the Panthers were going to the playoff on a regular basis, I consistently got top dollar for my tickets on eBay - last few years, not so much.
Finally, the last factor is the economy but if the Panthers are good (or even great), that won't matter so much. The Panthers might be a playoff team this year and I definitely think they will be in 2013 so if you want really good PSLs at a reasonable price, this year might be your last year to do so. Secondary market tickets for good to great seats could very well go up a lot in 2013 - heck, might go up this year. Cam Newton is one heck of a draw.
At the end of the day, it boils down to good old fashioned supply and demand. For the last few years, supply has FAR exceeded demand - I look for that to change some this Fall - just don't know how much.
