Cardinals World Series Ticket Price Preview

The St. Louis Cardinals have once again reached the World Series for the fourth time in the last nine years and will play the the Boston Red Sox as one of these two historic teams will add to their already impressive legacy. The Cardinals will be looking to capture their 12th World Series title overall, the second most in all of baseball behind the Yankees.

World Series tickets in St. Louis are currently averaging $866 per ticket, making them cheaper than St. Louis’ 2011 World Series average ticket price of $919. While Cardinals Tickets are costly, they are reasonable in comparison to Boston Red Sox tickets. In Boston, tickets are averaging $1529 on the secondary market, 77% more expensive than Cards tickets.

Surprisingly, both Cardinals and Sox World Series tickets have been trending downward since the playoffs began. As of Wednesday afternoon, Cardinals tickets were down 18.12% in the last seven days and 8.77% since the playoff began. In Boston they’re down 10.92% this week and 10.96% since the playoffs began. The only individual game that has gone up in ticket prices is game 7 in Boston, which is up 2%. I guess fans in Boston see a long series ahead of them.
