Not yet counting 2014, the Detroit Tigers have not just been to the playoffs in three straight seasons, but have reached the American League Championship Series. However, for three straight seasons the average price of Tigers tickets on the secondary market has dropped for the ALCS. The average has dropped from $265.26 in 2011 to $219.88 in 2012 to just $147.58 last season. This season, Tigers tickets will far surpass those averages at Comerica Park. Currently the average price across three potential home games in the ALDS is $257.30, more expensive than the ALCS average the past two seasons. If the Tigers make it to the ALCS for the fourth straight season, the average price is currently $408.36.
