Brewers tickets: Available for cheap

Hey brother, can you spare a dime for a baseball ticket? (original by Getty Images)

As colleague Matt Snyder recently observed, the Brewers are playing darn good baseball of late and are even clinging to playoff life. But you wouldn't know it by the prices of certain tickets.

To be sure, the secondary-ticket market produces some thoroughly strange results from time to time, but, as Time points out, this is something else altogether ... 

Lately, however, it looks like the fans snatching up those early-season deals were overpaying. Earlier this week, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel noticed that tickets to Monday night’s Braves-Brewers game were being offered for as little as 27¢ apiece at the resale site

A more recent look at Brewers tickets available at StubHub showed that through Tuesday afternoon, tickets were priced starting at a single penny each for the game that night, and just 8¢ each for Wednesday night’s game, both versus the Atlanta Braves. These ultra-cheap tickets are being offered even as the Brewers still “have a slim chance of making the playoffs,” as the Journal Sentinel mentioned.

As Time notes, it's more than a single penny once you tack on the various and sundry fees and charges, but it still seems that, at least for a few seats here and there, the Brewers are getting slapped by the invisible hand
