Tickets to Wednesday’s wild-card playoff game at Citi Field were averaging an asking price of $314.01 as of Monday morning, on pace to make it the most expensive wild-card game recorded by TicketIQ, which tracks resale sites.

The lowest asking price for the Giants-Mets game was $162 for standing room.

Last year’s wild-card game at Yankee Stadium between the Astros and Yankees averaged $174.83, according to TicketIQ.

None of the Mets’ four clinchers over the past two seasons - the division title, NLDS and NLCS last year and wild card this year - have come at Citi Field.

So if the Mets win Wednesday, fans will witness the first clinching victory at the stadium, which opened in 2009.
