6. St. Louis CardinalsAverage ticket price: $33.11 Change from 2012: +3.7% OK, so the Cards are only a year removed from a World Series title and made the most of their Wild Card spot last year despite losing slugger Albert Pujols and manager Tony LaRussa. Did that really warrant a ticket price hike? Kind of. Sustained excellence is as much of a driver for price increases as titles are. If the folks keep coming out and the playoff appearances keep happening, the tickets won't get any cheaper. Until the team slacks off for any length of time, however, success comes at a price.
