Facing Elimination, Cubs Game 5 Tickets Prices Are Plummeting Fast
What a difference a little over a week makes.
As soon as the Chicago Cubs qualified for the World Series for the first time in 71 years, tickets prices at Wrigley Field were as much as $996,000.
After 4 games, the Cubs are down 3-1 and face elimination on Sunday, and ticket prices have plummeted to as low as $802. That’s a 72% decline in ticket prices.
