NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Want to see Alex Rodriguez play in his final game? It’ll cost you.
According to resale market ticket aggregator TiqIQ, tickets for the Yankees’ home game Friday night against Tampa Bay have a current average list price of $305.49, about four times the $75.92 price they were selling for before A-Rod announced Sunday that he is retiring after that game.
The current “get-in” price — the cheapest tickets — are going for $66, up from $16 before Rodriguez’s news conference.
How do those prices compare to other recent farewells involving Yankees stars? The average resale price for Derek Jeter’s final game in 2014 was $768.09 on average (with a $296 “get-in” price), while tickets to Mariano Rivera’s last game a year earlier were listed for $237.89 (with a $61 “get-in”).
