The Philadelphia Flyers will honor Mark Howe on Tuesday evening by raising his No. 2 to the rafters of the Wells Fargo Center prior to the game against the Detroit Red Wings. The organization hasn't raised a number to the roof since October 1990 when Bill Barber's No. 7 was retired at the Spectrum, so Tuesday night is going to be a special night down in South Philly.
As you might expect, tickets to Tuesday night's game are a little difficult to come by. You can get in the building for a reasonable price -- as of this posting on Saturday afternoon -- but the average ticket price is up near $133 per seat.
Our friends at TiqIQ have given us the opportunity to present a neat idea for Tuesday night's game, however. You can make your own offer on tickets for the game, and the big benefit: No fees will be attached at all. When you make an offer, you'll find out instantly if it was accepted or not, and if not, you'll typically receive a counter-offer on the spot which you can choose to accept or deny.
The process is pretty simple: Head on over to this link, select your ticket quantity and select which zone you'd like to sit in on Tuesday night. Make your offer, enter your payment information and hey, you're going to the game on Tuesday!
We suggest you offer $40 per ticket for a "1-star" seat, which usually goes for about $100 to $105 per ticket after shipping and fees, or you can offer $100 per ticket for a "5-star" seat, which usually goes for upwards of $180 after shipping and fees. I did this for a game back in January and it went off without a hitch. I think I saved something like 65% off of the face value of the ticket.
Unless somebody happens to give you free tickets, it's without a doubt the cheapest way to get in to the game on Tuesday to see some Flyers history.
