For the first time in 15 years here, there's a World Series on the horizon. And for the first time ever, the average price of a ticket is below $500. Only not here.
Tickets to the four games in Tampa are selling for an average of $499. Since StubHub has been tracking the numbers, they report that this is the lowest average price for a World Series ticket that they've seen for any city. This is the first time that Tampa Bay has reached baseball's playoffs in the 11-year history of the franchise.
Game 1 on Wednesday is selling for an average of $524 and Game 2 seats for the next are selling for an average of $480. The averages for Game 6 ($466) and Game 7 ($483) are sititng on the low end, although expect those numbers to rise by this time next week if it's looking like the series will be heading back to Tampa.
A get-in ticket for Game 1 has sold for as low as $200, and there reportedly are around 2,000 tickets being posted at this hour.
