The Sound of Priceless at the World Series


Last night marked one the more dramatic World Series in MLB history. After seven games, a rain delay, and 10-innings, The Chicago Cubs finally broke their 108 year championship drought and won the World Series 4-3 against the Cleveland Indians.

Mastercard, inspired by a statement from an opposing player who said, “Wrigley wasn’t that loud”, wondered what it would sound like if Cubs fans got the opportunity to celebrate 108 years of pent up anticipation, and created a decibel reader app.  Cubs fans cheered so loudly that they broke the 100 decibels mark and brought it to another level – what was heard was “The Sound of Priceless”.

Experiences Matter more than things
