Fans Are Not Thrilled With The Outrageous Prices Being Charged For World Series Merch

  • The prices of souvenir apparel at World Series games between the Astros and Braves is, as one might have predicted, outrageously priced.
  • Just about anyone who attends one of these World Series games can expect to shell out at least a thousand dollars for tickets, food, and merchandise.
  • More MLB news here.

If you have ever wondered why teams like the Houston Astros would resort to cheating in order to make it to and win a World Series, all you need to see are the ticket prices and the cost of souvenirs put forth by the teams that make it that far.

On Tuesday, we reported about how Braves fans were sick over the outrageous prices being charged for tickets to World Series Game 3 in Atlanta.

As of Tuesday, the lowest ticket price on StubHub was $945… for standing room only. The best seats available were priced at $27,778. Let me repeat. One seat for World Series Game 3 at Truist Park in Atlanta was being sold for twenty seven thousand seven hundred and seventy eight dollars.

Normally those seats sell for $620.

Apparently only the obscenely rich are allowed to attend the World Series these days.

Which means they shouldn’t have any trouble affording the ridiculously high prices being charged for souvenir World Series apparel while attending the games.

Senior MLB writer Ryan Fagan of The Sporting News was apparently one of the lucky ones who didn’t have to pay to go to one of the two World Series games in Houston, tweeted out a photo of a placard outside the gift shop at Minute Maid Park.

How does $40 for a short sleeve t-shirt sound? A lot better than a $100 hoodie and a $50 fitted cap, I suppose.

I guess when things like the line you see below happen, all bets are off when it comes to the prices pro sports teams are willing to charge for merch.

Dress like a winner indeed.

Not that any of this should really surprise anyone. Not when we’ve seen the insane prices of things like the concessions at the new Seattle Kraken arena ($8 water, anyone?) and $14 popcorn at the Super Bowl.
