Ok so i bought monster seats(won a contest to buy them) well the site acted up when they first went on sale so i couldnt get any until 7pm and there wasnt a lot left. I got tickets but didnt really look at the date cloesly and it turned out to be easter sunday. Long story short im looking to sell them on ebay(tickets just like mine are at 810 with 5 days left)
Anyone know any lwas about selling tickets on ebay for more than you bought them for?

It may depend on where you're selling from, as state laws can vary.
I've sold tickets before, out of Denver and Albuquerque, and they have gone above face value and I've had no problems.
I think the only rule is that you must start your auction at net face value or below. Meaning, if your tickets are $15, you must start at $15 or below for one ticket, $30 or less for two tickets, etc.

Ebay will apply the certain rules depending on the state you live in or the state the buyer is from. If you are from a state that has limits, you could post the tickets as something else (say a baseball card) and then say you will throw in the tickets with the baseball card free of charge. Just include the tickets in your subject line so people find them.

I wouldn't list the seat number for no other reason that the Sox won't shut you out of future sales of tickets. But if I remember correctly you live in New Hampshire. I don't think the state of NH can go after you on an event that takes place in Massachusetts.

The following was included in the congratulations email:

Im not sure if it applies to people not residing in Mass.
