A Bargain At $231,002
My bleacher seat for game 6 of the ALCS at Fenway Park on Saturday cost me $100 (the face value price) plus all the fees, which was a little less than 4 times the regular season price for the same ticket. Expensive, but within the realm of reason. I’d like to go to the World Series, but as of the writing of this blog entry the cheapest standing room ticket on StubHub! for game 2 is $487.65. This sounds really high to me. However, it could be a lot worse.
I'd love to sit 4 rows behind the Red Sox dugout for this game, but, alas, I think I'm out of luck for two reasons: 1) I can't complete the sale of my house by this Thursday; and 2) even if I could, this seller likely will insist on selling the tickets as a pair (for $462,004, and not a penny less).
