Don Vaccaro, chief executive of TicketNetwork.com, a Connecticut company that markets the tickets of brokers across the country, said bleacher seats for games at Fenway Park this week are selling on his website for $700 to $750, ten times face value but well below the 2004 level of $1,200 to $1,400.
Compared with the 2004 World Series, Vaccaro said, many more tickets are being resold this year but prices are significantly lower because the stakes for both buyers and sellers were so much higher in 2004.

I notice that I'm back to the usual watch-ticker-until-overwhelmed-by-curiosity mode versus the honey-nobody-bother-me mode. This could be conditioned by my subscription to mlb.tv for three years now. I got cable for sports, but baseball is the one sport I don't use it for.
