With the Mets in the World Series, fans are hoping to somehow get their hands on a ticket to see them in Games 3 and 4 (and Game 5, if necessary) at Citi Field. Tickets to the general public are no longer on sale directly from the club, with season ticket holders getting first dibs and the chance to purchase any leftover ones already awarded via lottery. However, individuals who have purchased tickets—and are now unable to attend, or never intended to go in the first place—have made them available online on secondary ticket markets.

The lowest-priced tickets on StubHub for Game 3 of the World Series, to be played on October 30 at Citi Field, start at $642— for the standing-room-only section—as of Thursday night. The most expensive tickets are four tickets in the left field reserved section or the Delta Gold Club for $20,000 a piece. At TiqIQ, one of StubHub's competitors, a seat in Row 14 of Section 504 was listed at $700, with the most expensive ticket listed at the site's cap $5,999 and part of a set of four in Section 128, Row E.

Tickets for the next night's Game 4 start slightly cheaper, but not by much. Standing-room-only tickets on StubHub were listed for as little as $635; the most expensive sets were listed at $19,999 each. Over at TiqIQ, the lowest priced tickets started at $725 apiece, with some listed at $5,999, the site's maximum price. As for Game 5 (again, if necessary), prices started at $697 on StubHub and at $720 on TiqIQ.

It bears mentioning that if the Mets are able to take a 2-0 series lead back home, tickets for Games 3 and 4 (and 5) will be substantially higher than they are now, especially if the Mets have a chance to win a world championship in front of their home fans. It also bears mentioning that fans should take caution if they decide to purchase tickets from unknown vendors and ensure they are participating in legitimate transactions.
