Derek Jeter reaching the 3,000-hits milestone hasn’t been enough to entice fans out to the ballpark this season. Baseball ticket prices on the secondary market have dropped 6% on average since the start of the season, and Yankees tickets in particular have dropped nearly 50%.
With ticket prices from teams increasing all the time, the secondary ticket market has prospered in recent years. What started as scalpers standing around an arena trying to pawn off tickets has evolved into a full-fledged industry.
Watchdog: The Best of Neil Best
Jeter 3,000th spurs ticket demand at Yankee Stadium.
Tonight, legendary Beatles frontman Paul McCartney, easily one the greatest living musical acts, begins a two-night concert run at Yankee Stadium, home of the 27-time World Series champion New York Yankees.
When Christian Lopez caught Derek Jeter's 3,000th hit, he returned it to the Yankees shortstop, instead of trying to sell it. (One estimate puts the value of the ball at between $100,000 and $250,000, but it could have been even higher.)
At last. Derek Jeter will finally get his 3000th hit Saturday at Yankee Stadium against the division-rival Tampa Bay Rays - that's what the secondary ticket market believes, anyway.
According to seatgeek.com, the average secondary-market ticket prices for this weekend are more than $200, about what tickets were last year when Alex Rodriguez got to 600 home runs.
If Yankees fans want a chance to witness Derek Jeter reach another historic milestone, his 3,000th hit, they’re going to have to dig deep into their pockets.
Celebrity scandals such as John Mayer and Brett Favre make event ticket prices soar: SeatGeek
It turns out there really is no such thing as bad publicity. When celebrities are involved in scandals, ticket prices for their concerts or games jump, numbers recently analyzed by SeatGeek show.
With Derek Jeter sitting three hits away from the 3,000-hit mark, we have a good guess of when he'll get it. Or do we? The Yankees' secondary ticket market didn't seem so sure.
Derek Jeter is four hits shy of 3,000, and the chance to see history has more than doubled some ticket prices for the New York Yankees’ next home series.

Tickets. Tickets. Anybody need Super Bowl tickets. Well, before you start doing your 'super' search; check out something called seatgeek.com.

With four days to go until Super Bowl XLV finally kicks off, it's becoming increasingly clear that Dallas Cowboys fans will not like what they see in the stands at Cowboys Stadium.
Last summer, football fans in Texas entertained hopes of seeing one â€” or both â€” of the state's NFL teams in the Super Bowl at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington. The Cowboys were a popular preseason pick to win the NFC while the Houston Texans were viewed as a sleeper contender in the AFC.
Russell D'Souza of SeatGeek estimated the cost of a 4-day, 3-night trip leaving from Pittsburgh or Milwaukee Friday and returning Monday.
With only a few days left, Super Bowl XLV ticket sales are on fire, and Steelers fans are trying to grab up as many as possible to fill the new stadium in Arlington, near Dallas, Texas, with as much black and gold as possible.
And you thought it was hard to get tickets in Boston. On Sunday, the Celtics face the Los Angeles Lakers for the first time since Game 7 of the NBA Finals last season, marking the 273rd time the storied franchises have clashed.
SeatGeek was inspired by frustration. Jack Groetzinger and Russ D'Souza, both avid concertgoers and sports enthusiasts, were fed up with the unpredictability of the secondary ticket market--reseller pricing that can swing from significantly higher than face value to cut-rate, depending on an event's popularity.
Odds are good that you can't afford the highest-priced Super Bowl seat. As of Monday it was going for $764,725. Even the least expensive would set you back $2,563. But make no mistake: The secondary ticket market can be a fan's bonanza.
As the host city (or region) of a Super Bowl, prime matchups matter in making the game a promotional bonanza, and the fan base involvement of the two teams will certainly help trigger the economic benefits.
If the Super Bowl is any kind of annual barometer of the economy, things are steadily improving. Football fans â€“ both individually and through businesses â€“ are coughing up more money this year on tickets and hospitality events for the big Feb. 6 matchup in Dallas.

Tickets for Sundayâ€™s playoff grudge match between the New England Patriots and the New York Jets are still available online, but theyâ€™ll cost you.

Faced with the potential for dozens of busted ticket orders for the January 10 BCS National Championship game, secondary ticket marketplace StubHub, which is the official resale marketplace for the game, was forced to pull down all BCS tickets from its Web site Wednesday night, January 5, because a broker oversold and could not fill customer orders.

Forget Kobe and Pau vs. LeBron and Dwyane. When the Los Angeles Lakers and Miami Heat meet at Staples Center to celebrate Christmas, the game will feature several compelling business stories.
The New York Giants are scheduled to face the Philadelphia Eagles today and tickets to the game are the hottest ones in town.
One of the truly great aspects of sports fandom is that it is inherently social. Itâ€™s just no fun cheering by yourself.

Ticket prices suggest the Ultimate Fighting Championship's return to the Detroit area is drawing the most interest of any UFC show since late August.
A prime seat at a Christmas Day game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Miami Heat would cost $900 at the box office and about $2,582 on the secondary market. Where is all that money going?
How can you be sure if you pay $100 for a seat today that the one next to it wonâ€™t be available for half that tomorrow? Jack Groetzinger grappled with that very same question in 2008, prompting him to launch SeatGeek.com, a consumer advocate site that helps you get the best bang for your ticket buck.
