For the eighth year in a row, Boston will host two teams, the Celtics and the Bruins, this
spring. However, the Boston Police Department has a warning: be careful who you buy
tickets from.

The Boston Police advises only buying tickets from official vendors. Buying from
unauthorized re-sellers could result in fake or invalid tickets.

“Fans who purchase tickets from a secondary source are taking a chance and do so at
the buyer’s own rick. Officers want to proactively curb such activity and encourage
buyers to only purchase from official vendors,” police warned.

On Sunday, for Game 1 of the Celtics’ first-round series at TD Garden, the cheapest
available single ticket was sold on Ticketmaster for $144 for a verified resale ticket or
$172 for a standard ticket as of Thursday afternoon.

On Saturday, for Game 1 of the Bruins, the prices started at $189 for a resale ticket and $214 for a standard one.
