We've heard of all kinds of crazy mark-ups for tickets to major sports events in the online resale market.
But $6 for a World Series ticket? That's a new one.
On Monday night, Deadspin posted photos from a user claiming he purchased one ticket to a game in the upcoming World Series for $6 on StubHub . He actually apparently paid only $3 for the actual ticket, but got stiffed at the checkout window with a $1 service fee and $2 delivery fee.
How could this have happened? Well, there are a variety of possibilities. But considering a similar ticket on StubHub is going for close to $800, the lucky man now has quite a dilemma. Go to the game and count his blessings, or re-sell the ticket and, unlike the sucker he got one over on, count his cash.
