After winning the National League Division Series versus the Phillies, the Cardinals welcomed division foes the Milwaukee Brewers into the Gateway City for the Championship Series. Ticket prices for this first game jumped over $56, a 53% increase in one week’s time. As the Cardinals tried to take control of the NLCS before returning to Milwaukee, fans packed into Busch Stadium with higher anticipation and demand. Game 5 tickets jumped another $37, a 21.7% increase in price.

The World Series then illustrated how dramatically a rare shot at a championship – even for a fan base with ten trophies on their team’s mantle – fuels further demand. Game 1 average prices rose 156% in comparison to the last NLCS home game, but Game 2 prices surprisingly dipped 4% (though still 146% more than that NLCS price).

As the baseball world prepares to see a matchup of two similar teams go the distance in this best of seven series, prices for the last two games of the season, if necessary, are climbing even further. Demand is already pushing the prices of possible games between the Cardinals and Rangers 12.2% (Game 6) and 23.2% (Game 7) higher than Game 1. Those prices stand a week prior to the games actually happening, so those averages stand to rise further as they are both guaranteed and built up by championship anticipation and late season story lines.
