Its simple math really.
As for the SBL, expect ALL of those numbers to go up. Face value of the tickets is higher. Its a new building with much larger demand (at least initially).
In SC I'm in section 235. Thats on the home side, second deck, just below the suite tower. Section 236, immediatly to my left is a club section with a $325 face value on the tickets. The face value on my tickets is $125. My guess is that I'm not going to have much trouble selling my tickets when I want.
you can forget about taking your whole family to games unless your a baller.
The prices were always going to go up tho. Candlestick has some of the cheapest prices in the NFL right now. That's because the place has become a dump. Its also part of the reason there have been "issues" during some games in the past few years. Lower ticket prices have introduced a new "element" to games.

There will be more 49ers fans looking to buy tix to these games.
These tix being for sale doesn't mean they all go to Packer fans. They still have to fly out if they aren't from here. There will be a huge number of 49er fans trying to get tix to this game as well. Season Tix holders are selling because they know there will be a market and they will profit.
Last year some of the worst seats in the house in the NFCCG were selling for $400.
My family has 11 seats at the stick and just one prime time game pays for our entire season of tickets.. Well close so we go to what we want then we sell the rest. We have made like 4x te value if each ticket for this weekends game.
There is no sense in continuing to whine about the new stadium. This is happening with every franchise and if you want your franchise to be competitive, you have to draw the corporate money with the luxury corporate boxes. Candlestick is close to my heart. I've seen lots of football and baseball games there. But, it's way past it's due date. The Niners need to be competitive. When I was a kid growing up in San Francisco, I could go out to Kezar on game day and get a decent seat for a few bucks with a high school football player card. So what. That was then, this is 2013. Time marches on.
You guys crack me up. If I lived anywhere close to SF, no way I would miss a home game. Ever. I like what the one person said, keep the same seats, get to know the fans around you for years on end. Hell, if I were in that part of the world, traveling to AZ and SEA once a year wouldnt seem like a big deal.
