To no one’s surprise, tickets to the Yankees-Red Sox ALDS are the costliest of the four divisional round series on the resale market, according to TicketIQ, which monitors a number of sites.

As of early Thursday, the average asking price for the three potential games in Boston was $395, a 22-percent increase from last year’s divisional round, while the two potential games at Yankee Stadium were averaging $396, 2.5 percent higher than last year’s divisional round, but the costliest for any of the eight remaining teams in the postseason.

The least expensive of the first-round series is Dodgers-Braves, which TicketIQ said was averaging $151 as of early Thursday – more than the least expensive seat for Game 3 of the Red Sox-Yankees series at Yankee Stadium, which was $161.

TickPick, another secondary-market site, said that as of Thursday the Red Sox-Yankees series was averaging an asking price of $477.82, far higher than for any other division series over the last four years in either league at a similar point.
