A baseball fan got the steal of a lifetime. Someone selling a ticket to game 1 of the World Series at Fenway Park accidentally sold a ticket on StubHub for $3 dollars. Not $300, not $3,000 but 3 bucks!
The receipt of the sale was posted on Deadspin. With the service fee the lucky fan named Eric was able to wrap up the whole sale for $6 dollars. Heres a map of where the ticket is and its not even in the upper deck!
The lucky fan might even be able to snag a foul ball from the seat. The cheapest ticket in the section on StubHub is listed for around $500, the average is about $800, and the most expensive is priced for more than $11,000.
Why would anyone sell a ticket that cheap? We have no idea and Im guessing that the seller has no idea either. Im guessing someone didnt hit a decimal point and a couple more zeros.
We dont know why anyone would sell a ticket that cheap either - but a writer for CBS Sports feels for the seller.
Someone really, really screwed up. ... I legitimately feel bad for the seller, assuming this was a mistake and not just an act of kindness.
Either way -- someone is still going to the game and Eric is a very happy guy.
She looked at the ammo in the back of my car and said in a very sexy voice, I believe in barter, big boy. Would you be interested in trading sex for ammo?
I thought it over for a few seconds and responded, Well, just what kind of ammo have you got to trade?
line drive foul ball right to the left temple..**BONK**
When did this change?
When I went in 86, you could just walk in off the street.
I won't be watching, but I hope the Cards beat the snot out of Boston.
“....and his sodomite-enabling organization....”
Honestly? I’d buy the ticket.....but I’m glad to see that I’m not the only person who is upset about this.
It would be fun to buy the ticket, sell it for fair market value, and donate the proceeds to Ted Cruz: 2016.
I would be lulled to sleep by the sounds of heads exploding all around Red England.
Whoever sold that ticket.... I hope they were wealthy enough to absorb the loss
I vote “publicity stunt” for the site.
Never heard of it.
Smooth move, if you ask me...
Yes , the fact that Ortiz is vocabulary challenged and isn't the brightest bulb in the room notwithstanding.
Red Sox FANS however, are a different story.
Bunch of loud mouth fashion conscious pretentious com symps and morons who will get to see their team get slaughtered by the Cardinals.
Red Sox got lucky against Detroit, and they have no pitching.
Red Sox fans and Massachusetts suck.
Lester, a heroic cancer survivor, Lackey, Bucholtz . . . Uehara . . . not bad pitching at all. Pedroia? Best pure baseball player in America. Boston? Bombed by Muslim terrorists. Go Red Sox!
Hmmm... Yankee fan based in Florida?
Amen to that! :-)
Yankees and their fans suck too, and for the same reason as Boston fans.
Never set foot in Yankee Stadium and never will.
Saint Louis has a good club and decent folk.
That reminds me of what happened to me when I was a young man and single in college.
Was in this bar when this beautiful lady came up to me and asked if I’d buy her a drink. I said, “Well, I’m no
John D. Rockefeller, but I can buy you a drink.”
A little later she whispers “How about a dance?” I smiled and said, “Well, I’m no Fred Astaire, but I’ll dance with you.”
Later, she suggested that they go up to her room. “I’m no Cary Grant,” I replied, “but I’ll follow you up there.”
After a few drinks she says, “How about we make some fast love together?” I said, “Well, I’m no James Bond, but sure I’ll make some fast love with you.”
Afterward, she says, “How about fifty bucks?”
Getting dressed I said, “Well, I’m no gigolo, but I’ll take it.”
