Giants tickets see 22% rise on secondary market


They say a rising tide raises all boats and in the case of the sagging New York Giants ticket sales, rookie quarterback Daniel Jones is that rising tide.

The Giants’ decision to insert Jones into the starting role, displacing Eli Manning, has led to a rippling effect of good vibes as well as good fortune.

The Giants introduced the future when they put Jones in the lineup and the results have been staggeringly positive. In use one week, the Giants have gone from possibly headed for a three-win season to a team on the rise.

Jones’ heroics in his debut against Tampa Bay last week have rekindled the flame for many Giant fans who were set to resign themselves to another losing season with no hope.

Even the injury to Saquon Barkley’s ankle that will keep him out a month (or more) has not deterred the enthusiasm Jones has created. His jersey is among the best selling in the league at the moment and fans who thought they were going to take a loss on their tickets in the secondary market, are about to realize a windfall.

From Kristian Dyer of Fox Business:

Before Week 1, when there was optimism about the Giants, secondary ticket market site TickPick showed an average purchase price of $152.31. As the Giants began to disappoint over the first two weeks of the season, that price understandably dropped with the average purchase price bottoming to $137.04 last week.

Now with Jones’ strong first start on Sunday, enthusiasm has not only picked up but exceeded the preseason prices, with the average purchase price now having risen to $167.34.

That is a rather significant 22 percent increase in prices on TickPick.

The Giants face the 0-3 Washington Redskins on Sunday and can get to .500 for the first time since 2016 with a victory. That will create even a bigger stir.
