Jeez, that's a great markup. I should have bought some. I could have paid for my whole weekend.

As much as it speaks to the success of the event (high demand), I really hope not.

It won't stop them but I think you can report the item and just tangle them up a bit. Or you could put a counter Craigslist ad in, stating that you're not selling tickets and what the real price is and that it's sold out and to buy earlier next year.

Although, anyone who is willing to pay $500 for two tickets for two hours is really out of their minds.

Not really. The Craigslist ad was two tickets for $500. Gumby would be making off like a bandit. :)

I can totally understand someone buying public exhibition tickets and now realizing they can't go and trying to sell their tickets, but trying to get 10+ times the price they paid?!?!... WTF.

I just assumed he meant $499 for a pair. Total savings of 50 cents per ticket!

Oh yeah I meant $499 for a pair too, but if someone wants to pay me $499 each, sure! :)
