Ticket brokers talk playoff prices

CINCINNATI (FOX 19) -- Now that the Cincinnati Reds secured their position in the NL division playoffs, fans are searching for tickets to the potential games in Cincinnati.

333seat.com says their tickets start at 67 dollars and go up to 136 for the first round. The ticket prices will increase as the Reds go deeper into post season play.

Travis Jackson, marketing manager at 333-SEAT says this is the most buzz, phone calls and interest fans have shown in getting tickets in his 10 years with the company.

"Its young its old, a lot of people want to experience that excitement again. That was unbelievable last night," Jackson says. He says after Jay Bruce's walk-off home run the phones started ringing and the company's web site actually crashed for an hour because it couldn't handle the demand.

Now the web site is back up and Jackson says tickets are available all the way through the World Series games.

If you do order tickets through a broker, Jackson says be sure to make sure the purchase is refundable for games not played. 333-SEAT says they refund tickets and understand you want to secure your spot at the games that still could be in the Reds future.
