To get their hands on the greenest part of the Cubs' run to their World Series title since 1908, some Cubs fans are going to have to fork over some serious, well, green.
ESPN's Darren Rovell reported Tuesday night that the Cubs are offering up leaves of ivy that covered Wrigley Field's outfield wall last season to season ticket holders — and the pricetag is $200 per leaf. Well, $215 per leaf after shipping.
The team emailed premier clients and season ticket holders on Tuesday offering the Ivy leaves that cover Wrigley Field's outfield walls from the 2016 season. Typically discarded when the ivy turns to red and sheds its leaves in November, the team, after the 2016 historic season, instead chose to collect the leaves for the first time and have them each authenticated with a hologram.

While it might at first blush sound a little ridiculous to drop multiple Benjamin Franklins on a leaf, the Wrigley Field ivy is pretty darn iconic. To be able to have a piece of it from the year the Cubs broke the curse? That would be a unique souvenir.
How many leaves are up for sale? 2,016 of them, according to Rovell.
So those who want to own this particular part of Cubs lore better make like a tree and ... well, you get it.
