At mid-day Tuesday, a spokeswoman for StubHub said the official fan-to-fan ticket marketplace of MLB had more than 3,100 tickets available for Friday’s game, starting at $947 and averaging $1,635. StubHub had more than 2,700 tickets listed for Saturday’s game, starting at $999 and averaging $1,718, she said.
A spokesman for another secondary-market site, Vivid Seats, said tickets listed there started at $868 for Game 3 as of early Tuesday afternoon.
At the top end of the price spectrum, one seller on StubHub was seeking $12,249 apiece for four seats in the Truist Club section directly behind home plate.
Games 1 and 2 and (if necessary) 6 and 7 of the World Series are being played in Houston, where secondary-market prices have been considerably lower. Six hours before Tuesday night’s Game 1 at Minute Maid Park, some sellers were asking $385 for upper-level outfield corner seats.
Prices on the secondary market fluctuate frequently, rising or falling depending on supply and demand.
Braves season-ticket holders had an opportunity earlier to buy tickets from the team to all postseason home games.
