I couldn't find you specific figures for Wrigley, alas, but I consulted my husband on the subject in general. He believes that a bleacher seat for a Philadelphia Phillies games at Connie Mack stadium couldn't have cost more than 50 cents in the 1950's, which is when he started attending games as a small child. Chicago ticket prices were probably comparable.

And, according to the site below, you could have purchased a 1951 World Series ticket for $6: no longer exists
