Cubs Divisional Series Games Will Cost a Pretty Penny
With the Cubs picking up the win last night and guaranteeing themselves at least one home game in the NLDS, ticket prices for Game 3 and Game 4 are the most expensive Divisional Series games in all of baseball since at least 2010.
The average resale price for Game 3 is $442, and Game 4 is $399. The third most expensive Divisional Series game is actually also from this year, Game 3 of the Dodgers-Mets series in New York, which has an average resale price of $290.

As you would guess, these games will be the most expensive Cubs tickets since at least 2010. The previous high was a Yankees-Cubs game on June 18, 2011, which had an average resale price of $163 a ticket. The most expensive game against the Cardinals was this year’s home opener, which had an average resale price of $145 a ticket.
While tickets for this round are certainly expensive, fans should be prepared to pay even more if the Cubs make a deeper run into the playoffs. Right now the cheapest ticket we have for any NLCS game at Wrigley is $660, and for any World Series game at Wrigley is $2,733.
Fans may be able to save a bit of money if they are willing to drive to St. Louis to see the series, as the average resale price of Game 1 is $156 and for Game 2 is $149. However, listing prices for the games in St. Louis did go up about 45 percent following the Cubs victory last night.
These games are both currently more expensive than any Bears home game this season, the most expensive of which was their home opener against the Packers that had an average resale price of $325. These Cubs games are also more expensive than of the Bulls Eastern Conference Semifinals games against the Cavaliers last season, the most expensive of which had an average resale price of $261.
While the three Stanley Cup Final games for the Blackhawks were more expensive than these Cubs home games, these tickets are hotter than any of the Western Conference Final games against the Ducks, the most expensive of which had an average resale price of $365.
