Looking at the Cards from a fan's perspective

The Cardinals on Tuesday have announced that they're raising the cost of tickets across the board.

The average increase is about 4 percent with the highest tickets going from $205 to $215. The "cheap seats" have increased in cost 50 percent since Busch Stadium opened in 2006. Back then they were 12 bucks a ticket. Now they're $18 a seat, up from $17 last year.

Fortunately, it's the first time the price of bleacher tickets has gone up in three seasons.
