CHICAGO, Ill. (KWQC) – Hopefully, Cubs fans have been saving up during all the years they have been waiting for this moment.

The cheapest ticket on StubHub.com for Game 3 of the 2016 World Series Friday at Wrigley Field is $2,000 – and that is to stand.

Bargain hunting Cubs fans may find it cheaper to travel to Cleveland, where the lowest-priced ticket for Tuesday’s opening game is $1,013, according to TicketIQ.com.

Some Cubs fans in the Quad Cities Area have sticker shock.

“These prices are ridiculous!” Valerie Beattie posted on Facebook.  “I’m happy for the Cubs but come on!”

The last time the Cubs appeared in the World Series was 1945, when a bleacher seat was $1.20 and a box seat for Game 7 was $7.50.
