2022 Badge Sale
« on: March 08, 2022, 06:35:21 PM »
Just wondering what everyone's thoughts are on the likelihood that they will have an additional badge sale for SDCC. We have badges but some in our group did not get all days. I keep hoping.

Most likely your only chance will be contests or auctions at this time.

Some of us were talking about that possibility on the FOCC Hotel Exchange thread.

Right now, the consensus is that there will not be an additional sale for the 2022 show.

I believe they mentioned they wouldn’t have any additional badge sales. Plus with the dates coming up soon I don’t think it’s likely.

If they open up volunteering, that could be another option.

Volunteer for the dates you don't have a badge. 

That's always been my backup.

Do people just search for auctions. I always thought this was something that was not allowed.

Don't look at auctions from third parties.  CCI auctioned off badges directly in 2019.  So only buy from the official comic-con account on ebay.

The auctions are done by Comic-Con itself, usually to benefit the Comic-Con Museum. They've been selling a few pairs a year that way for a few years. Individual attendees are still not allowed to resell their badges.

ETA: Also, the badges they auction off this way are always for the full show, not single days, and often in pairs as well. Plus they always go for more than face value (sometimes not astronomical, but definitely not face value). So they're not really great option for anyone just trying to fill in days.

It'll be interesting to see this year what they go for via ebay from their official account.  I remember one year they were in the thousands.  But I also remember seeing sales that went for a couple/few hundred too...

Hello,

OK - I did not know this even existed. Do they announce it? I remember in the past having another badge sale later after the date when people could get a refund.

I've been coming to Comic Con since 2015.  I've heard they stopped those sales since 2013/2014.  They didn't get enough cancellations to justify having another sale.

In 2019, the winning bids started high.  Then there was a lull in the middle where the badges sold for less than face value.  The winning bids at the end went back up but not as high as they were at the start.  I don't think many people knew CCI was auctioning badges on ebay.  There were not that many bidders at all.
