A look at the prices of pro sports tickets on secondary market

How much will it actually cost you to see a professional sporting event? Probably a lot less than you think.

How it works:

The range of prices for each event with at least one ticket available on Stubhub.com for each of the four major US professional sports leagues--MLB, NBA, NFL, and NHL--are recorded every hour. No event can be represented more than once. Only the lowest price for any specifc game is used. Prices might be higher now. Current priced can be found on linked stubhub pages. All events are included, so preseason games are treated the same as postseason games. This leads to issues, but it is already complicated enough combing through about 2 million different prices.
