6. St. Louis Cardinals
Average ticket price: $33.84
Change from 2013: +2.2%

So maybe they lost the battle of fanbase smugness to the Boston Red Sox after losing the World Series last year. It doesn't matter. 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. Tony LaRussa and Albert Pujols are long gone, but the Cardinals remain among baseball's elite.
