MLB All-Star Tickets Break Record, Then Drop
This year’s MLB All-Star Game at Marlins Park in Miami is the most in-demand SeatGeek has seen since 2010.
For the third year in a row ticket prices to the July event have risen, with a current average price of $820. Clearly the demand for this midsummer classic is still quite high.

|2013||New York (Citi Field)||$643|
This is by far the hottest event SeatGeek has ever seen at Marlins Park, topping the stadium’s opening night when the Cardinals played the Marlins. That game had an average resale price of $212.
The Home Run Derby is also a hot ticket this year, with an average resale price of $574. So far, this is the most expensive Home Run Derby SeatGeek’s has tracked, however prices do typically drop leading up to the event.
In fact, prices have already started to drop for the All-Star Game, which is played July 11 this year. The median listing price for the game has actually fallen more than 50 percent since Opening Day, although it’s still a record.
