World Series: Tickets available, how much?

October 29, 2009 4:15:24 PM PDT
Believe it or not, there are thousands of tickets still available for this weekend's World Series games at Citizens Bank Park. But, it will cost you at least $500 for seats all the way up and almost as much for standing room only.


It's sticker shock for most.

Ticket brokers say the economy has had an impact on demand, even though prices are averaging about the same as last year.

Diehard fans would love to fill the seats, but at a much lower price.

And maybe that's why there are still thousands of tickets available.

We checked with Stub Hub and early today they had 2,000 tickets for tonight's game in New York.

And they're just one broker among many.

The average price tonight is $737.


They had 6,000 tickets available for the first game back here in Philadelphia Saturday night.

The average price is $927, down from $979 a day ago.

You can get standing room only for $445 and the cheapest seat is $500.

It pays to know someone, like a couple from Texas whose daughter is an intern with the Phillies. They got their tickets for $150 each.

And of course, season ticket holders are in the driver's seat.

And, if you have the bucks, why not? The most expensive ticket sold so far is a first row seat on the Phillies side of the infield. It went for $4,390.
