24/7 Wall Street: The Most Expensive Tickets in Sports

7 of 22

MLB: 5. New York Mets

Avg. Ticket Price: $63.56
W-L past 10 years: 49.1% (14th lowest)
Championships Past 10 Years: None
Avg. Home Attendance: 30,108

Though New York Mets secondary-market tickets are among the most expensive in baseball, the team simply has not had the same on-the-field success as many of the other teams on this list. It costs fans buying resales an average of just over $63 per ticket to attend a game at Citi Field, the fifth most in the MLB. Though demand is still high, the team’s play has been subpar in recent years. The Mets won only 795 games between 2002 and 2011 — among the bottom half of all MLB teams. Only once during that period did the Mets make the playoffs — in 2006. The Mets have had their off-field woes too. Several Mets owners — including Fred Wilpon and brother-in-law Saul Katz — were sued in connection with their dealings with famous Ponzi schemer Bernie Madoff and settled in early 2012 for $162 million.
