Want to go to the World Series? Check out these ticket prices

CLEVELAND - Cleveland Indians fever has taken over Northeast Ohio.

On the morning following the Indians' ALCS Game 5 victory over Toronto to clinch a trip to the World Series, tickets went on sale to the general public.

Those tickets lasted about five minutes. Many fans attempting to purchase tickets were first sent to a "virtual waiting room" where they eventually received a notification that they'd been selected to buy tickets. But when prompted to purchase the tickets, many fans got a blank screen and were shut out.

Those who were lucky enough to score tickets will either be attending the World Series in Cleveland, or they'll be making a pretty penny.

Immediately following the announcement that all tickets were sold out, third-party sites like StubHub had Game 1 standing room only tickets for as cheap as $500.

Standing room only tickets for Game 7 started at $900.

SeatGeek, which aggregates tickets from multiple vendors, ranked $1,855 for a ticket in the left field corner a "great deal."

Though the Indians promoted the tickets as being only available for online purchase, fans stood outside the Progressive Field box office to purchase them as well.
