How much would spend to see your favorite team possibly win a championship? Do you have a price limit? Would it be anywhere near $50,000? One Chicago Cubs fan spared no expense in order to see Game 7 of the 2016 World Series. According to StubHub, a Cubbies faithful dropped $46,800 on two box seat tickets located along the first base line at Progressive Field, the home of the Cleveland Indians.
Considering what is at stake tonight, it's kinda, sorta understandable that a Cubs fan would shell out that type of money to see Game 7 in person. As you may have heard, the Cubs haven't won a championship in 108 years, and with the organization just one win away from putting the long-standing drought to bed, it's hard to put a price on a piece of history—even if that means spending the equivalent of a year's salary.
Coming into the World Series, reports were indicating that the asking price for tickets to Games 4 and 5 in Wrigley Field were more than Super Bowl 50. The prices then took a dip when the series moved back to Progressive Field. In a winner-takes-all Game 7, though, there is no such thing as a cheap seat. StubHub claims that the least expensive tickets at $825 are in the standing room only area, while the overall median price for a ticket being sold is $1,823.
