Secondary ticket prices fall ahead of World Series Game 7

Minute Maid Park Houston

Normally, a Game 7 with a championship on the line is one of the hottest tickets anywhere, but Houston Astros fans don’t appear to be chomping at the bit to see the decisive game of the World Series.

According to VividSeats.com, the cheapest ticket available for Game 7 on Wednesday night was $337, and the average ticket was selling for $840. That’s lower than the average rate for Game 6, and significantly lower than the going rate for tickets to Game 7 of both the 2016 and 2017 World Series.

One Astros fan, Mike Hensley, felt that the drop in pricing came as a result of Houston being “depressed as hell” over how the series was unfolding. He believed Astros fans are pessimistic because Max Scherzer will start for the Washington Nationals, and the home team has yet to win a game in the entire series.

“Game 2 tickets were $1,200 plus fees. Today’s are $600 plus fees,” Hensley said, via Bradford Doolittle of ESPN. “Houston’s depressed and ticket prices reflect that.”

Compare this to what was going on during the NBA Playoffs earlier in the day. Not only are Astros fans not new to playoff success, but there’s clearly a growing element of pessimism ahead of Game 7 in the knowledge that the Nationals will win if the current trends of the series continue.
