If you want to gain admission to the first game of the World Series played at Wrigley Field since 1945, you’re going to need to pay a pretty penny.

Hours after Chicago clinched a spot in the Fall Classic, standing room only tickets—the cheapest available—to the game were going for upwards of $2,300 on StubHub and over $2,400 on TicketiQ. That’s around 383 times what it cost in 1945.

Of course, the Cubs are attempting to break a 108-year championship drought, so many will find the cost to be more than worth it. Or, you could go to Wrigleyville and enjoy the game in a jam-packed bar and guzzle down some overpriced drinks.
