One on the most prominent careers in Philadelphia will soon come to an end. Ryan Howard, the Phillies' longtime first baseman, will play his final games in red pinstripes this weekend, capping a 13-year run that spawned one World Series title, one MVP Award, three All-Star selections and the Rookie of the Year Award in 2006.
So how much will it cost fans to be on hand as Howard takes his final rips in a Phillies uniform? Phillies tickets on TicketIQ are posting a price premium for the team's final three home games when compared to the season average at Citizens Bank Park, but don't let that deter you - tickets are still cheap across the weekend series.
Check out a complete price breakdown below:
The average resale price for Phillies tickets over the three-game series is now $78.20. That marks a 17% increase over the Phillies' season average of $66.65 in 2016. Still, even with a notable increase in average price, plenty of deals exist around the ballpark. Tickets can be found from as low as $15 on Friday and Saturday. The last game of the season on Sunday now owns a $19 get-in price.
Howard vacates the Phillies clubhouse as one of the most prolific hitters in franchise history. His 381 home runs heading into the weekend are second all-time in Philadelphia behind the great Mike Schmidt and his 548 homers. But what fans will likely remember him most for was his presence during the dreamlike 2008 postseason run, guiding the Phillies to their first World Series title in 26 years.
