Boston Globe –
With the acquisition of Kevin Garnett, interest in all things Celtic has dramatically increased. The league reports that Garnett’s new No. 5 Boston jersey has been the No. 1 seller since it became available online Aug. 1. The Celtics have seen spikes in season ticket sales and sponsorship interest. Individual-game ticket prices could be the next thing on the rise. . .
According to team president Rich Gotham, the Celtics’ season ticket base has grown by more than 50 percent since the Garnett trade and more than 60 percent since the end of last season. While the team manages ticket sales to ensure availability for individual contests and game-day purchases, Gotham said the staff will be working with less inventory than in the past.
