We're a little late to this whole Jeter retirement price comparison thing, but we wanted to wait long enough for some data to come in before saying anything about the numbers.
A couple articles, including this one from ESPN, have outlined what happened to the listing price of Jeter's final games after his announcement, but I haven't seen anything about the selling price. It's one thing to say that ticket prices have shot up, and they have, but it's another to look at what ticket buyers are actually paying.
The average selling price for Yankees tickets listed on TicketNetwork.com indeed spiked significantly from before the announcement to after it. Before, the average selling price for Jeter's last home game on September 25 was $169. After the announcement, the average selling price rose to $409.
