The Brewers have secured home field advantage for the National League Division Series.  This means they’ll be playing Games 1 and 2 at Miller Park on Saturday and Sunday.

Currently thousands of tickets for each game are available on StubHub, ranging from roughly $50 for a Terrace Reserved seat to $1,000 for a Club Infield Box seat.  (It’s unlikely the Club Infield Box seats will sell for that much since there are Club Infield Box seats available for less than $200.)  The asking price for the majority of tickets is under $200.

Are Brewers playoff tickets a deal or not?

Is spending $50 on a Brewers ticket worth it?  We polled our Facebook followers to get their thoughts.  Of course, there were a few who thought it was too much money, but some admitted they weren’t big baseball fans or they are too frugal to even buy tickets during the regular season.

One of our readers, Nick C., had a different take on the pricing.  He said:

…$45 to $55 for a playoff ticket doesn’t seem that crazy at all to me.  I expected them to be going for WAY more than that.

Several agreed with Nick, including Farrah F. who pointed out:

I’d compare these prices with concert tickets – pricey, but not something you do every day.

Jennifer from Green Bay Consumer chimed in to point out that $50 is a steal compared to Packers playoff tickets (or even regular season tickets).

Considering that the Brewers have made it to the Postseason four times in the last 30 years (1981, 1982, 2008, and 2011) our take is that the tickets are expensive, but if you’re a big baseball or Brewers fan, there is a lot of value to experiencing this type of an event.

What do you think?

So, what do you think?  Would you pay between $50 and $200 per ticket to attend a Brewers playoff game?  Is it worth it?  Please leave a comment and let us know!
