The Mets are now offering a 2008 Pennant Race Pack
. What does this get you? * The final 15 Regular Season games ever to be played at Shea Stadium.
* Be there as the Mets fight for Postseason play with series against all Division rivals and Lou Pinellas' Chicago Cubs.
* The opportunity to purchase your seats for all potential 2008 Postseason games at Shea.
* Priority for Full Season Tickets in Citi Field for the 2009 Regular Season.
The devil is in the details, however. In the fine print, we find this:
The Pennant Race Pack includes your commitment -
with a non-refundable $250 per seat deposit - to a Season Ticket
purchase of the same number of seats at Citi Field for 2009.
You are not just buying these 15 games. You are committing to a full season next year, in seats yet to be determined.
Interesting that the ticket office is still holding onto great seats for the last game ever at Shea. Going through the purchase process, I was offered a Mez box in Section 22 and 3rd row of an upper deck box in Section 18. We bought the "last game at Shea" seven-pack in March and could barely get seats inside the stadium (Sec 44, just below the airplanes).
Of course, I hope we continue to have a great pennant race but heaven forbid history repeats itself and this September resembles last September. There will be some PO'ed Pennant Race Packers at these last games. But fortunately, there's no chance of another historic collapse. Not with our bullpen.
