Cubs World Series Ticket Prices hit Superbowl Levels
Take me out to the ballgame, if you can afford it. OMG!
Ticket prices for the Cubs vs Indians World Series games have hit level almost unheard of when it comes to World Series games. Maybe because fans have not had an opportunity like this in 71 years.
Right now your best bargain is catching a game in Cleveland, if you want to see the Cubs at Wrigley, you'll need to take out a second mortgage on your home.
By the way, in 1945 when the Cubs last appeared in the World Series the price printed on the ticket was $6.00. Adjusted for inflation, that would amount to just over $80 in 2016 dollars. Of course, ticket scalping wasn't as prevalent back in 1945 as it is today, so go figure.

Yikes, $6781.00 is a bit pricey for me. Shout it out..."Go Cubs Go", but for me I'll have to do it from my easy chair.
