Price was 869 a seat.
I'm not sure what they are classicified as based on reading this post I'd assume Terrace View.
I've attached a picture from sitting in one of the seats. I guess because I can't see the scoreboard they are still considered obstructed (or a really high punt)
The pics sure look nice. Good score Howie.
But just so you know, section 220 is located between the 35 and 20 yardlines.

One downside for the row 14 and above seats is that they are narrower than the original seats and the armrests are much smaller. This allows 2 extra seats per section in row 14 and higher. If you are thin this makes no difference but you could be squeezed if you are on the heavier side.
First off, this is my first post so greetings to all my fellow Redskins fans.
I found this post to be very informative and I wanted to know if you guys would evaluate a recent transaction of mine from Ebay, that I have not yet paid for.
The ad was for 2 club level season ticket seats in section 308. the seller kept the rows and seat # private until payment was sent. I ended up winning both seats for a total of $2200. The person had a reserve on the item until $2000 and I guess my bid was right after the reserve and I won them, for what I think is a pretty good price. however I am feeling a little nervous about the transaction. The ad said that they would be out of town for 2 weeks so it took them a while to get back to me about the exact location of the tickets, but she did get back to me about that which ended up being Row 14.
I tried to email her back and her email was returned to me as undeliverable. I asked her why her email didnt work on her account and she instantly created a new one on hotmail for her account. I then asked her if she could send me a copy of the invoice so I could be sure that the tickets were really hers and she told me that her invoice is really for section 228 but the Redskins upgraded her to club level. I thought it was sort of wierd for the Skins to upgrade to such better seats but I was still willing to check out the invoice., After I gave her the fax # she came back and said she didnt trust to send me the invoice because my fax # had a different area code then my address, which I didnt understand. I offered to meet her in person with cash and she immediately filed a case with Ebay for non paying bidder. Her location is also some 6 hours or so from DC area.
Her feedback is 14, 100% but she didnt have any sales other than 2 back in April since 2007. Under payment options it says Paypal and it does mention something about complete buyer protection there. so can I assume that means the purchase can be guaranteed by them? Here is a copy of it.
Payment method Preferred/Accepted Buyer protection on eBay
Credit or debit card through PayPal
Pay with and your full purchase price is covered | See terms
What is your guys take on this? I havent had any bad experiences on ebay before but after reading this thread my spidey senses are a little off here and I want to just abandon the transaction, but the other side of me knows the price is right as well and I think I may be worrying too much.... What are your guys thoughts?
Also if you happen to be on this board reading this I apologize if I am way off, I am just being precautious.

It is possible the seller was upgraded to club from 228 if the seller was a tailgate club member. My take is it's probably a legit sale - she's just not good at business.
Yes, your payment would be covered by paypal. However, there is a 45 day window to file a claim. That starts from the day you won the auction. This is IIRC, so you might double check. The first preseason game is Aug 23, so that's a good 7-8 weeks away.
If you want the tix, you should pay by paypal. Be sure to file a claim within 45 days of auction end, however, regardless of whatever excuse she has. You can always cancel the claim once you receive the tix.
I would communicate to her that you intend to file a claim within 45 days because you are forced to due to the window closing. She should accept that and understand.
Great info here, thanks Mark!
Mods, is there any way you can save these posts? Perhaps a "sticky"?
I'd love to have this info available the next time I go to DC to watch a game at FedEx.
edit: I just read one of Mark's posts explaining why this cannot be "stickied"... ignore my question above.

You can easily find this by doing a tag search on "instant seat info" or "instant ticket info" or going to the info index (tag seach: index) where you'll find a link to it.
Are any of the 200 section on the Redskins side obstructed? You mention only the visitor side.
