World Series ticket prices are:
Lower Deck Box--$185
Lower Deck Reserved/Bleachers/Upper Deck Box--$140
Upper Deck Reserved--$125
The White Sox said they would guarantee Series tickets if purchasers put 50 percent down on 2006 season tickets.
Now hear this! The Sox are using World Series tickets to climb out of their hole as the #2 team in town and sell season tickets, and narrow the gap with the Cubs' revenue. Demand must be overwhelming for them to be able to get those prices. I would pay it if I were in town for a game, but to also have to buy season tickets? That's more cash than I have in the checking account.
It would be great to to see something similar -- what looks to be a long-term benefit -- if the A's get to the Series, but not sure it would work. I mean, we couldn't sell $35 tickets for the deciding game of the division series a few years ago.
