Ticket price for last Jeter home game doubled after his retirement announcement

2/15/14, ""Ticket prices to Derek Jeter's Yankee Stadium finale could triple Mariano Rivera's," Star-Ledger, Brendan Kuty

"If you spent hundreds to see Mariano Rivera's last game at Yankee Stadium, expect to pay more to see Derek Jeter's.

Ticket prices for Jeter's regular-season finale in The Bronx look to well outpace those of Rivera's last year, according to a spokesman for TiqIQ, a secondary market ticket aggregate.

The average price for the Yankees' Sept. 25 game against Baltimore is around $619 — up more than 104 percent from the approximately $304 it would have cost before Jeter announced he'd retire after the 2014 season via Facebook Wednesday, according to TiqIQ.

Compare that to the average price of about $237 for a ticket to Rivera's last game at the stadium. That price was actually much lower than the $467 peak it reached when the closer announced his retirement on March 9, 2013." Yankees 2014 season schedule
