A Cubs playoff ticket for $90?

During last year's World Series run, this would have been unthinkable. But this year, it seems demand isn't driving prices up as high.

With the Cubs down 0-2 heading into tonight's National League championship series against the Los Angeles Dodgers, ticket prices for the Wrigley Field games are the lowest they've been in the past three years, according to TicketIQ.com.

While prices fluctuate constantly on secondary market websites, a quick search this afternoon found tickets for tonight's game as low as $90 for an upper deck ticket on VividSeats.com, $108 for an upper deck ticket on StubHub.com and $132 on TicketIQ.com. The prices were even less for standing-room-only tickets.

That's less than the face value of some tickets, which range from $121 to $356. It's also less than half the secondary market ticket prices from last year's first two NLCS home games against the Dodgers, according to TicketIQ.com.

When buying secondary tickets, the Better Business Bureau warns consumers to check their website to make sure the company is reputable. The bureau advises that you purchase tickets only from official and accredited ticket vendors and pay with credit cards rather than cash, if possible, so you have some recourse if the tickets aren't as promised.
