SAN FRANCISCO -- Looking to get your hands on Giants World Series tickets? Better be prepared to fork over about $400 just to get into AT&T Park -- seat not included.
Advanced tickets for the Series are already sold out after a lottery the team held for a limited number of postseason tickets in late September, team spokeswoman Staci Slaughter said Monday.
"The best bet for people would be StubHub," Slaughter said. The average price on the site for two tickets for Games 1 and 2 was about $1,700 on Monday.
As of Monday afternoon, about 9,000 tickets were on sale for each of the first two World Series games on StubHub with more seats up for grabs on sites such as Craigslist. Tickets on StubHub on Monday ranged from close to $400 for standing-room-only tickets to about $10,000 for the most expensive seats near home plate.
Scattered tickets for Monday night's National League Championship Series Game 7 were available on the Giants website Monday as some fans and MLB officials returned their tickets, and that could also happen during the World Series.
"As we get tickets turned back in we'll push those out (through our website) but it's not a guarantee that those tickets will be made available," Slaughter said. "It's really hit and miss."
The Giants will host the Detroit Tigers in Game 1 of the World Series on Wednesday and Game 2 on Thursday and, if necessary, Games 6 and 7 on Oct. 31 and Nov. 1. All games start at 5:07 p.m.
The retail cost per World Series ticket ranges from $230 in the bleachers to $1,040 for premium field club seats. That's up from $150 to $550 for tickets to Monday's Game 7. Fans only pay if the games are played.
