So a couple posts ago I spoke about how the current season tickets were larger then last season’s tickets.
Wrong. This season’s tickets are larger then last season’s playoff tickets, but only slightly larger in width – not length – then the season tickets. The design is much different as you can see:
The four tickets which have the same basic design are the four different designs that were used during the 2010 – 2011 season. The two tickets that are more than just the black / gold / white design are the season tickets from this year. You can barely see that the text along the top of the ticket is an embossed silver in color text and the Stanley Cup champions logo is also silver in color embossed. Shiny.
I like the design of last year’s tickets, but I like the Stanley Cup champions logo and the color pictures of this year’s tickets. I also like how this year, all 42 home games (which includes the 2 pre-season games minus the home opener ticket) have a different picture.
You can see that the tickets are missing the sec / row / seat numbers and they are also missing the bar code down the bottom of the tickets. The price of the tickets went up by $3 a game – while we did move sections / rows / seats we stayed in the same price point area.
The home opener ticket was a different beast entirely:
In the season ticket package – which looks like a calender with the tickets inside – this home opener ticket had its own page. It also had a place holder ticket in between the two pre-season games and game two’s ticket. The place holder ticket said something like ‘this isn’t your ticket’ or some such. I’ll see if I can get a picture of it. This opening night ticket is worthy of framing through, which along with a pic of the Stanley Cup and I plus a pic from opening night it will be hanging on my wall soon enough.
