The Red Sox may be back in the World Series but Boston fans are slightly less crazed than they were in 2004 when the Red Sox won the Series back in 2004. Ticket resellers in Boston say that their prices are down 20 to 40 percent compared with 2004. Jim Holzman, the owner of Boston-based AceTicket.com told the Boston Globe
that a bleacher seat that the Red Sox sold for $75, which went for $1,200 in 2004 is now priced at $850 on his website. StubHub, the ticket business owned by eBay reports that the average price of their tickets is down about $300 to $1,465. The average price for tickets to the games at Coors Field in Denver is $781. The Rockies ticket website crashed after the team tried to sell 20,000 tickets for each game scheduled at Coors Field.
There are the dedicated fans willing to pay in the thousands for the right seat. One fan paid over $21,500 for two box seats behind home plate at Fenway. Now that's a fan.
