You probably could've seen this coming, but World Series ticket prices are going to be very expensive this time around.
With the Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians going head-to-head in Major League Baseball's showpiece event starting on Wednesday, we're witnessing a matchup of two historically hard-luck franchises.
The Indians haven't won the title since 1948. The Cubs haven't since 1908, and haven't even made it to the World Series since 1945.
So it's a rare opportunity for both fan bases to see their teams compete for a trophy, and as such, tickets on the secondary market are going through the roof.
The data below, from VividSeats.com, shows the cheapest tickets - or "get-in price" - and the average price for tickets for every game of the series (note: all prices have been converted to NZD).
Game 1 at Cleveland - Get-in price: $1310, median price: $3043
Game 2 at Cleveland - Get-in price: $1234, median price: $3144
Game 3 at Chicago - Get-in price: $2772, median price: $7684
Game 4 at Chicago - Get-in price: $3622, median price: $8662
Game 5 at Chicago (if necessary) - Get-in price: $3684, median price: $10,191
Game 6 at Cleveland (if necessary) - Get-in price: $1254, median price: $4191
Game 7 at Cleveland (if necessary) - Get-in price: $1512, median price: $4968
Those prices are astronomically higher than any other in recent years.
The average price to see the Kansas City Royals and New York Mets a year ago was just $1056, and that was the highest price of the past four seasons, for which VividSeats.com has data.
