Ticket Prices for Jeter's Last Games Fly Out of the Park
The lowest price just to get into the ballpark is $362, which has risen from $220 less than a week ago. TiqIQ collects pricing information from a variety of ticket sellers. If have money to burn and want to get up close for the game, you could spend $9,700 and get a seat right behind the Yankees dugout.
"In terms of regular season games this is one of the most expensive we have seen in the history of the company," said TiqIQ Vice President Chris Matcovich. "With quantity dwindling and the game two days away, the price could continue to rise."
Last year's swan song for superstar reliever Mariano Rivera seems like a bargain compared to Jeter's sendoff. The average price for Rivera's last home game was $239, and the lowest price to get in was $59, according to an analysis by TiqIQ.
How About His Last Away Game?
If you don't want to pay New York money to get into Jeter's last home game, how about going to Fenway Park to see his final major league game? There, you can pay Boston money to see Jeter end his career, most likely on Sunday. The average price of ticket for that game is "only" $534 --and the highest average price for a regular season game at Fenway in at least five years, TiqIQ said.
It will cost about $250 just to get into the park. But not to be outdone by their New York rivals, the priciest seat at Fenway for Jeter's final game is listed for more than $10,000 -- just a hair above the priciest seat at his Yankee Stadium farewell.
