I recall seeing a couple of weeks ago that Bernie Madoff’s seats were going to be sold off, but I didn’t realize that they were going on eBay:
The two tickets for Monday’s Citi Field opener owned by Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities were bid up to $1,925 by noon EDT Friday on eBay. Seats 5-6 in the eighth row in section 11, just to the home plate side of the New York Mets’ dugout, are being sold by the trustee overseeing the liquidation of Madoff’s businesses.
Twenty-five bids had been made for the tickets, which are called Delta Club Gold and come with access to the Delta Club behind home plate. The tickets retail for $525 apiece, and there is a deadline of 9:56 a.m. EDT Sunday to bid for the seats.
I’ll fly if you buy.
