According to SF Chronicle, the issue has extended to PSLs as well. According to the article publisher last season: "Greg Carl, managing partner of PSLsource, an independent resale site, said the values of 49ers seat licenses have declined with the team’s fortunes. In 2014, Levi’s first year, they were selling at an average of 25 percent above face value, Carl said. Now they are selling at 40 percent below for a simple economic reason. Supply on the market has definitely gone way up,” he said. His website lists 1,300 49ers seat licenses for sale."
