They didn't last long. I checked about 20 times yesterday and about the 5th time I checked today instead of saying "No Tickets Available at this Price" it said "Limited Amounts Available at this Price".
There's been a ton in Vancouver asking for over $450, and I've been flagging all of those too. One guy was asking $1400 for 2 passes and a premier pass but he clearly stated that it only cost him $900 to buy it all.
My favourite was a guy asking for $1000 for 2 passes and he posted a picture of his receipt that said $1000 to make it seem legit -- except you could clearly see the receipt was for 3 passes. So I posted an ad calling him out; it lasted about 8 hours before it got flagged (and rightfully so as response ads are a flaggable offense on CL).
Face value ones have been coming up in Vancouver quite a few times a day, but they tend to come down very fast. I've of course been flagging all the ones over $350. That said, the guy I bought them from was asking $1000 for 2 and I bargained him down to $350, so it does pay to sometimes send the high-ballers an email.
