Old Timers Day and Yankee ticket prices

Well, this is surprising. I logged onto Yankees.com tonight, and saw that there are still plenty of seats available for Old Timers Day. There are face value tickets for as little as $22 from Yankees.com,. In addition, I have gotten a slew of promotional emails this week for OTD. It used to be that Old Timers Day was the second game of the year to sell out after Opening Day.

But as the folks at Tiqiq say (see below), it is still a top seller, as compared to other Yankee games this year.

Sunday is Old Timers Day at Yankee Stadium, as the Yanks welcome many former players back to the stadium in only a way the Yankees can do it. The day is always a special one in the Bronx, and also is always a huge success at the ticket office for the Yankees. While Yankees tickets for Saturday's game are going for an average of $91, the price on Sunday for Old Timers Day is $114, with a get-in price of $16. At $114, tickets for Sunday's game are currently 27% higher than the Yankees 2013 home average and is also the most expensive game at The Stadium this month, which is saying a lot considering they have played or will play the Red SoxDodgers, Rays, and Rangers in June.
