    If you don't have tickets already to any of the three World Series games you might be out of luck -- unless you're willing to fork over some major buck.

    Phillies Phever is making people do some crazy things especially on the Web such as throwing down thousands of dollars at Stub Hub, Craigslist and Ebay for the chance to see their favorite team in the Fall Classic.

    The cheapest seat might be $500 for a standing room ticket on Craigslist.

    The cheapest Stub Hub ticket is still more than $570 for a standing room only ticket to Game Three. The price tag goes up to $610 if you want an actual seat.

    Even crazier might be the $8,999 Stub Hub asking price for a third base line seat to the opener next Saturday. The seat is in the 18th row and isn't even that close to the action.

    Compare the Philadelphia prices to Tampa where you can grab one of 14 upper deck tickets to see Game 2 at the Trop for a mere $262.

    It seems that in these up-and-down financial times the only safe bet to get some cash quick is to have a pair of World Series tickets that you're willing to sell.
