Cleveland has not won a World Series since 1948 – that’s 68 years of drought. The Chicago Cubs, however, really have the whining rights – they haven’t won a World Series title since 1908 – that’s 108 years of misery! It’s understandable why fans of both teams are willing to pay just about anything to see the games in person.
To start with, taking transit to the games will probably help. Would you pay this much for parking?

The big outlay will be tickets.
This restaurant will feed you for life, if you can hook them up:
FREE FOOD FOR LIFE in exchange for a pair of #WORLDSERIES TICKETS for our Beloved #ChicagoCubs! If you have an extra…
Maybe someone will help out this World WarII vet who survived Pearl Harbour; he watched his Cubs in the 1945 World Series, and would love to see this one. His family has set up a GoFundMe page to help out.
Chicago tickets are more than doubling the previous World Series record – the average sale price for the first World Series game at Wrigley Field since 1945 $4,080 (on the secondary market). “These are Super Bowl prices for every game,” said one ticket broker.
Cleveland tickets (while they last) range from $740 to $6,000+ each for tonight’s game on one resale site.
Or, you could just give them away, like this Cleveland pitcher did.
