On Tuesday, we at SeatGeek begin our Midseason Ticket Report series by looking at the American League East. Since then, we have looked at the American League Central and the American League West. Today, we will be analyzing the National League East. We will be using three metrics; 1) Average ticket price per team versus average percent of face value per team 2) the top ten games in the NL East, as determined by average ticket price on the secondary market 3) the top three games for each team in the NL East.
- The Braves are the second best team in baseball (based on record). Yet their tickets sell on average for lower than the Marlins, $37 to $38, who have an average attendance of 16,664, which is worst in the National League.
- Mets tickets, on average, sell for 27% more than Phillies tickets, but Phillies tickets, on average, sell for almost double the percent of face value Mets tickets sell for.
- 9 of the top 10 most expensive games in the NL East are games at the Mets' Citi Field.
- 6 of the 15 games are games between NL East teams.
- All 3 of the Mets top games are against their cross-town rivals, the Yankees, with an average ticket price of $123 for the series.
- The Nationals top game, 4/5 vs. Phillies, was opening day. Tickets went, on average, for 61% more than the Nationals next most expensive game, 8/28 against the Cardinals, is going for.
