Aaron Judge is just two homers away from setting an all-time single-season American League record, and the prices to see the slugger do it are sky-high. His record pursuit and home streak against the rival Boston Red Sox puts a premium on tickets, especially in the left-field stands where any historic memorabilia of the 30-year-old would most likely land. Tickets to the Field Outfield section are up to $1,360 per seat for Saturday’s contest, with Friday-Sunday “entrance” prices for this portion of the ballpark listed for no less than $371 starting. Thursday afternoon.

Judge threw the No. 60 of the year on Tuesday against the Pittsburgh Pirates, tying legend Babe Ruth’s 1927 total, which was the AL and Major League record until his compatriot Bronx bomber Roger Maris pitched No. 61 in 1961. That record would be the Major at the top of the league for nearly 40 years, before Sammy Sosa, Mark McGwire and Barry Bonds all had more than 62 home run seasons between 1998 and 2001. While many consider those records tainted by later revelations about rampant drug addiction, Bonds’ 73 home runs in 2001 remain the single-season record at the majors, but all three of these players were National Leaguers, which makes Judge’s pursuit of a fellow Yankee good for a record in its own right.

New York, currently 6.5 games up in the American League East standings, hosts the Red Sox for a four-game streak at Yankee Stadium starting Thursday. According to ticket resale market Ticket Club, prices for these games have risen significantly from season averages for the Bronx, with the possibility of history being added to the draw.

Thursday’s opener has the lowest asking price as of this afternoon, with a ballpark get-in available for just $20 (for a standing room ticket). Median prices for the day are $110, with seats in the Field Outfield sections on the right ranging from $155 to $500 per ticket in sections 132-136 of the fair territory. These prices are for members of Ticket Club, which offers a wholesale pricing model for its members (and Ticket Club readers can get a free one-year subscription here).

Ticket prices are no doubt influenced by the potential windfall of catching a baseball with the judge’s bat. A collector has already offered a total of $550,000 in rewards for the three most important baseballs Judge could hit by the end of the season ($100,000 for No. 61, $200,000 for No. ° 62 and $250,000 for its season finale as it will be the new “record” ball). The actual value of the record ball could be much higher, depending on whether or not it approaches or beats Major League marks.

With that in mind, Field Outfield seats for the remainder of the weekend are priced to reflect this potential aspect of lottery tickets for fans who catch one of Judge’s next home runs, if he doesn’t suffer inexplicable wilting on the stump. Friday night Field Outfield seats range between $427 and $1,200 per location on Ticket Club, Saturday night between $371 and $1,360 and Sunday between $445 and $1,020. The median prices for each game are also high, reflecting the interest of just being in the building for the potential story: $188 on Friday, up to $226 on Saturday, then up to $154 on Sunday.

After the four-game streak against the Red Sox, New York will hit the road for three games in Toronto before returning home for a three-game streak against the Baltimore Orioles in their final home game of the regular season. Judge will have his last chance to write his name in the single-season record books with four games in Texas before the playoffs begin.
