(NECN: Greg Wayland, Boston) - According to SeatGeek.com, Wednesday's Game 6 of the World Series is set to be the most expensive event in U.S. other than the Superbowl.

The average resale price for a Game 6 ticket is $985, according to SeatGeek.com, and the cheapest available ticket for standing room is $550. Actual bleacher, outfield and grandstand tickets will cost $650 and more. Field box seats are going for $2,500 on average, and SeatGeek.com says they've seen some pay $7,000 or more for dugout box seats.

"We actually saw ticket prices skyrocket after they won Game 5 and fans were aware now that Game 6 was the first opportunity the team would have to win a championship here," says a SeatGeek.com representative.

That's why some fans camped out in the cold for their tickets.

"It's going to be a fraction of the cost of what they're actually selling for on the street right now, so they're going to range from $90-$400, and I'll probably just buy a $125 bleacher ticket," says one fan.
