The New York Mets earned a spot in baseball's World Series on Wednesday night for the first time in 15 years. Now championship-starved fans who who didn't get tickets through the Mets will pay a hefty fee to get into a game.
The average asking price for a resold ticket to a Mets World Series home game in Queens cost $1,667.82 as of Thursday morning, according to ticket resale site TiqIQ. That price is the highest since the company started tracking World Series prices in 2010.
"A lot of it plays into the fact that they haven't been to a World Series in 15 years. There's definitely a lot of pent-up demand for these tickets," said Chris Matcovich, vice president of data and communications at TiqIQ.
