Interesting. My understanding is that the Red Sox, which is the team I know the most about ticket sales re:, has an arrangement with Ace Ticket (their preferred "broker") where some unsold Ace Tickets are sold at the park as walkup sales, and they obviously have some sort of $ split arrangement that makes sense for both of them. Ace would prefer this than lowering tickets publicly and setting that expectation. I thought it may be common practice. Oh well. Tomorrow evening will be the best gauge of where we areThe box office will not get any resale seats "back". There won't be a walk up. However, the fact that 1k or so have moved through secondary is a good sign. Now that a sellout has been announced, folks will know to go to the secondary market and we'll probably see a good chunk of movement there today and tomorrow. Doubt they'll move all of them but as long as they move 1-2k more it'll be fine.
Broker prices went back up after the sellout announcement but I bet you'd be looking at $50 or so on Saturday which may convince a few folks to buy.
