It’s not even safe to have tickets delivered to your front door anymore.

According to Fox 29, a Flyers fan living in Ardmore had $8,000 worth of team season tickets stolen after they were delivered to the home.

The package was apparently too big to fit inside of the mailbox, so it was left in between the front door and the storm door. But when the owner of the home returned, the tickets were gone.

This comes one day after ESPN reported that NHL teams had instituted a large percentage increase in ticket prices; larger than both the NFL and NBA.

The report from ESPN also said that the Flyers had the third-most expensive ticket prices on average among American teams in the NHL.  

As for the rightful owner of the stolen tickets, all hope is not lost.

Fox 29 spoke with Comcast Spectacor, who said that since every ticket purchased includes a barcode, the tickets could be canceled or reissued.
