Derek Jeter announced today that he will retire from baseball at the end of the 2014 season.
And thanks to the fixture-Gods the New York Yankees legend will finish his playing days at Fenway Park, the home of Yankees' fierce rivals the Boston Red Sox on September 28.
And within minutes of Jeter making his decision public, prices for this now 'priceless' game went through the roof.
According to well-known ticket website, TiqIQ, seats for the game, which is still seven months away, were available for as little as $26.
Diehard Yankees fans wishing to say goodbye, and grudgingly respectful Red Sox fans hoping to witness the event, have been scrambling for tickets, and according to TiqIQ's Chris Matcovich there has never been anything like it:
"People bought what they could buy.
"And the brokers started pulling their tickets so as not to sell their seats too cheaply," he explained.
So if you want to be there in the flesh to Jeter step out onto the diamond for the final time you better either have a big bank balance or start saving now because prices are only going to get higher.
