The Houston Astros are about to take the field for the team’s third World Series appearance since winning it all in 2017. Not surprisingly, fans across the Gulf Coast are scrambling for the hottest ticket in Texas.

Individual tickets for the World Series online at the Astros website are showing as sold out for all home games. Sadly, tickets are not available for purchase at the Minute Maid Park Box Office.

That means fans have to look to secondary ticket purveyors such as SimpleSeats, StubHub, and VividSeats.

At SimpleSeats, tickets for Game 1 start at $650 for Section 430, Row 2, and go up to $889 for Section 153, Row 12.

Game 1 tickets at VividSeats start at $387 for SRO (Standing Room Only) and go up to a $3676 Section 128 by the field, Row 1.

And at StubHub, Game 3 tix start at $575 for SRO (Standing Room Only) to a whopping $50,000 for Diamond Club D, Row 3.
