World Series: Game 7 tickets won’t come cheap | USA Today

TicketIQ, a seat tracking and resale site, said the average listing pricing about six hours before first pitch (5:20 p.m. local time) was $2,586.00, which is primed to be the third-most expensive Game 7 since it began tracking ticket sales in 2010.

Only the 2016 World Series (Chicago Cubs-Cleveland Indians at $3,973) and 2016 NBA Finals (Cleveland Cavaliers-Golden State Warriors at $3,173) surpassed the prices of this Game 7.

The leading secondary market ticket sites saw prices for Game 6 drop about 50% after the Astros took a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series. Even with the Dodgers’ victory in Game 6 on Tuesday that put them a game from clinching their first title since 1988, the prices for tickets sold on StubHub since Tuesday had dropped 4% to $1,718.

TicketIQ saw tickets for the cheapest seats drop about 40% to around $800 in the hours immediately following the Dodgers’ 3-1 Game 6 win, although the prices on the site began to trend upward as the first pitch approached. The cheapest price as of noon local time had exceeded $1,000 on the site.
