It should come as no surprise that seeing Leafs playoff action at the Air Canada Centre is the hottest ticket in town.
Like a mint condition, first edition
Gretzky Charizard, part of it comes down to rarity. A much larger part, however, comes down to the fact that the Leafs are taking a 2-1 series lead to home ice tonight against the first-place Washington Capitals.
Obviously you can forget about fetching Leafs tickets on the team’s official website – we’re deep into resale season.
Here’s what you can expect to pay based on a cursory search of Kijiji, craigslist, Stubhub, SeatGeek, and Fanxchange…
The absolute cheapest option is one ticket available for $290, while the average for anything in sections 301 to 323 is currently hovering around $485 per ticket. The most expensive nosebleeds are a pair of Section 321 tickets for $590 each.
Some major ranges here. The cheapest Leafs tickets outside the 300s can be found for around $600 in section 115, with the lower 100s (excluding the first 15 or so rows) demanding between $800 and $1350.
Only big rollers here. A second row ticket beside the penalty box comes with a $1460 price tag, while a first row spot can be had for just over $2000. The most outrageous offer we stumbled across was a $485,000 asking price for two seats in row 19, which we sincerely hope is a typo.
Damn. Better practice your scalper negotiation tactics.
