    What is the most you have ever paid for a ticket?

    For a sporting event?

    I paid $90 to see Game 7 of the 2003 NLCS between the Cubs and Marlins at Wrigley... obviously the Cubs lost, but it was a fun time. Still worth it to me.

    You?

    Re: What is the most you have ever paid for a ticket?

    I don't recall paying more than $60 for a ticket (iowa v ISU last time in IC). I probably would pay up to $100 for a good game but if ISU were in a final 4 or NC or something I honestly know I would pay a lot...like seriously $1000 for A ticket. Why? Let's be honest, if ISU was ever in that situation I would be hard pressed to believe it would happen again in my life time and thus I couldn't let the opportunity pass....


    Yep, this thread has just been pwned.

    $325 to see Favre's last regular season game in Lambeau as a Packer. Worth every penny....$289 for floor seats to game 4 of the Celts Bulls playoff series last year...again worth every penny.

    Re: What is the most you have ever paid for a ticket?

    Personally? $125 for Game 2 of the 2008 NLDS at Wrigley against the Dodgers. I thought it "was the year" and I had never been to a playoff game, so I bought them and went. Great time, other than the beating the Dodgers gave them.

    I've been to a few other games, Cubs vs. Cards at Busch in 1998 (Home Run Chase Year) that my uncle paid for. I have no idea how much he paid and I'm sure I'll never know. We were 14 rows behind the Cubs dugout, so I'm sure they weren't cheap.

    $90? $115? For cubs playoff tix? Where did you find those prices? Usually from second hand vendors for the playoffs you are looking at 250.00 plus and that's for the cheapo seats.


    Yeah TOAST!!!

    I bought mine in the bottom of the first and didn't have very good seats.

    I think the Elite 8 ticket in 2000 was like $180, but I can't remember. I regularly pay $100/ticket for NFL football games.

    Bought them on Ebay after I couldn't get them in the virtual waiting room...We were 2 rows from the top and 3 seats in from the edge down the left field line.

    Here's the view from our seats...they even had a make shift press box next to us that had better seats.
