Ticket scalpers are no longer just sketchy-looking guys holding cardboard signs near the ballpark. You can find lots of online ticket resellers such as RazorGator and StubHub-so many, in fact, that it's time for the next wave: the scalping aggregator. As Kayak does for travel services, FanSnap gathers deals from a wide range of ticket services and presents them in a nifty interface. A chart shows the distribution of prices for an event and a map of the arena, with icons indicating the location of the tickets on sale. Blue stars point to great deals. Don't want to spend more than $100 to see Nickelback (and really, who would)? FanSnap will filter down to only the cheap seats.
