The seating chart taken above was scanned from a 1996 issue of “SCOREBOOK” – the official magazine of the Toronto Blue Jays. It clearly defines the ticket prices for all sections.
Below is the seating chart taken today, with clearly defined ticket prices for all sections:
As you can see, if you wanted to sit in the 500 level behind home plate in 1996, it would cost you $18 1996 dollars. 14 years later, you can sit in those same seats for $14.00, or as little as $11.00 for a non-premium game.
True, field level seats have increased by $30-$50, but the team has not forgotten the value-minded fan. It costs less to take your family to the ballgame today (if you sit in the 500s) than it did 14 years ago. You can’t ask for much more than that.
Actually you can. Check out the ticket prices from the original Exhibition Stadium in 1988:
You could press your nose up against the screen directly behind home plate for only $15. What a deal!
