The Chicago Cubs have just announced that passes for the 2017 Cubs Convention will go on sale this Friday, November 18.
The price: $108 for a three day pass--an iconic number and a real bargain--compared to the prices paid for World Series tickets.
2017 marks the 32nd year for the annual Cubs Convention that gives fans an opportunity to get up close and personal with their heroes.
This year's convention takes place, January 13 through the 15, at the Sheraton Grand Chicago.
Here's what to expect at this year's convention.
Tickets, which are sure to be snapped up fast, go on sale to the general public Friday at noon CST on the Cub's website or by calling 1 800 The Cubs (good luck). Hotel reservations are already sold out.
Mastercard members can participate in an exclusive Mastercard Presale starting at 10 a.m. Friday in advance of the general sale.
The $108 pass plus convenience fees is valid for all three days of the convention. There is a limit of four passes that can be purchased per household.
Highlights of the 2017 Cubs Convention include a special World Series Championship celebration with players, coaches and alumni along with the 2016 World Series Trophy making an appearance.
As always there will be autograph opportunities, panel sessions, traditional fan-favorite activities, question and answer sessions, memorabilia, interactive areas and vendor booths and more.
A portion of the proceeds from Cubs Convention benefits Cubs Charities. To date, Cubs Convention has raised more than $4 million for Cubs Charities.
