The baseball season is a little more than a quarter complete, and fans can still find bargains on tickets for the New York Yankees. This week, TicketNews priced tickets to the upcoming Yankees game against the Toronto Blue Jays on June 4, 2008 at Yankee Stadium, and discovered some interesting price comparisons on the web search performed on Thursday, May 29.
For Field Championship level tickets (boxes 1-52), Ticketmaster.com was listing tickets at an advance price of $325 each, not including convenience and shipping fees. Similar tickets on TicketLiquidator.com (see screenshots below) were listed at as low as $136 a piece, not including convenience and shipping charges. Ticketmaster charged $400 for game day tickets listed on Yankees.com, not including convenience and shipping charges. The full season ticket holder face value for a similar ticket is $250 plus fees. Field Championship tickets are practically always sold out on a season subscription basis, so a general consumer purchasing through the Yankees would be forced to pay at least $325.
Main Championship level tickets for the same game were listed at an advance price of $180 on Ticketmaster, while the same tickets cost $107 at TicketLiquidator (see below). Game day tickets were $280 on Ticketmaster, and the full season ticket holder face value for a similar ticket is $120, plus convenience and shipping charges.
These price differences are notable for a high-level baseball game at America’s premier baseball stadium, slated for demolition in the relatively near future. The Yankees should expect a tough game against the Blue Jays, who are eager to cement a top spot in the American League East Division.
