    Thanks for the info.

    Needless to say, this will be the first time in a long time that I haven't been to Opening Day. I'm still trying to pull some strings though.

    do you still have connections to the reds?

    if i could get a 2007 team signed baseball, I think i could depart with my 2 extra opening day tickets.

    and that would have to include that pesky griffey jr auto.
    i know he signed some bs thing with uper deck i think.

    Well, that would be hard for me to get without being there...and I won't be down at the Stadium before Opening Day and most likely not even on Opening Day.

    Besides, the team usually strolls into town a day or two before the first game so it would be difficult to get a ball like that even if I was there.

    That's a very generous offer though, I appreciate it and I wish that we could work it out, but unfortunately we can't.

    Re: Opening Day and Single Ticket Sales: Info Released

    My opinion goes in a slightly different direction than most on this...

    I go to Opening Day every year. I drive in from Illinois and it's a real event for me. I've gone since the 1970's as a kid. In recent years if my redial wasn't sat enough (or at least faster than the Cubs fans) I've ended up paying several times ace for my tix. This was especially true for the last game at Riverfront and the first at GABP. I find myself faced with two scenarios:

    1) Do Opening Day the old way and pay some Cubs fan who got in before me five or six times face for tickets for one game only to endure several thousand Cubs fans at the game,

    OR

    2) Do Opening Day tickets this way, buy the Power Pack, go to a few more games than I normally might from Illinois, give some away to friends and family and hopefully provide a disincentive to the keep most of the Cubs fans away (at least for Opening Day).

    I know my situation is atypical and that buying the PowerPack is not an option for everyone (heaven knows it wouldn't have been for me growing up). However, for a lifelong Reds fan that can afford it this approach is infinitely preferable.

    The Power Pack last year gave me the peace of mind regarding OD... Of course, living close and going on average 40 games a year... I had no trouble going to the other games in the pack, and considering the choices of trying my luck online, ebay, scalper, or not going at all and the cost of the 3 of 4, it was worth it.

    Red in Chicago got the Power Pack last year... how many games did you end up going to RIC?

    I think I am going to bite the bullet and buy a couple of power packs...there are games I probably wont attend, but to have the opening day tix in advance will be cool--make it more enjoyable to go to the opening day parade and all the hoopla without worrying about getting tix from someone with extras before the game...

    Or....buy the power pack...sell the opening day tickets on Ebay, and voila...you most likely just paid for a large portion of your power pack. So, essentially, you'd be ending up with one awesome deal on a power pack.

    I'm going to register to buy any leftover tickets (which is doubtful), but I noticed this little caveat on the Reds webpage about details

    Major League Baseball game dates and times are determined in the sole discretion of the Office of the Commissioner Of Baseball and/or the Cincinnati Reds, as applicable, and may be subject to change. You may not resell any tickets purchased in connection with the drawing or use such tickets for promotional purposes. Registrations are non-transferable with no cash redemptions or substitutions. All sales are final
    Interesting little insert there. I wonder if I can sell the rights for someone to join me for the game?

    I bought the Power Pack last season. It's good for one reason: Opening Day. You pay extra for the Cleveland series, which in my opinion has lost its flavor. Also, last season some of the Firework Nights were half price nights.

    I'd much rather have a package with Opening Day and the Bobblehead nights.
