Here is a different way to look at the secondary ticket market. (Hat tip to Joanne) Sreekar Jasthi of Nerd Wallet took a different approach and analyzed how visiting teams impacted ticket prices overall.

Using current ticket pricing data from TiqIQ, here is a chart showing the results of their team by team comparison.

Not surprisingly, the New York Yankees are still the biggest draw in the game, but what was surprising was where the New York Mets ranked.

Only the Miami Marlins were a worse draw on the road than the Mets who drove down ticket prices a little over 20% on average.

What that means is that a pair of tickets with a total face value of $60 can be had for about $45 at secondary ticket outlets like Stub Hub and TiqIQ.

Another chart also showed that there’s a big swing between average Mets ticket prices at home and on the road. Currently, the average ticket price at Citi Field is $88.59 while that figure drops to $68.77 on the road.
