KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- If you're hoping to watch the World Series in person, tickets are still available.

Ticket brokers like Hal Wagner are buying -- and selling -- tickets. He says right now there are more buyers than there are sellers, which means prices are high. It also means there's an increased chance for fraud, so if you’re shopping, make sure the tickets you buy are legit.

Tickets to Tuesday's and Wednesday's games for a reserved seat start at $795. That may seem high, but Wagner says that’s the going rate.

"The misconception is there is only three or four brokers in this city. There's over two or 3,000 brokers in this city. Every person, every mother or father who's got a ticket who needs some extra money is selling their tickets."

FOX 4 checked Stubhub's website to see how prices compare. Tickets to Tuesday's game standing room only -- start at $728. Tickets to Wednesday's game are a little cheaper standing room only start at $700.
