$6 ticket to World Series Game 1 turns out to be fraudulent

By Mike Axisa | Baseball Writer

UPDATE: We have an update courtesy of ESPN's Darren Rovell:

Makes sense. Sounded too good to be true.

Talk about a steal. Thanks to what I can only assume was a massive screw up, a fan was able to purchase a ticket to Game 1 of the World Series for only $6 on StubHub on Monday. The buyer sent Deadspin a copy of his email confirmation for proof:

The ticket itself was only $3 with the StubHub service fee accounting for the other $3. Pretty sweet deal. The best available price for that section -- Right Field Box 97 -- is $759.00 right now, with most tickets over $850 and closer to $1,000. Here is the obligatory seating map:

Someone really, really screwed up. I'm guessing they misplaced a decimal point, but even in that case the ticket was either way underpriced ($300.00?) or way overpriced ($3,000.00?). I legitimately feel bad for the seller, assuming this was a mistake and not just an act of kindness.

If I was the buyer, I'd resell the ticket for a massive profit, then buy a ticket in a lower priced section and pocket whatever was leftover. But that's just me and I'm kind of a jerk.

(Again, h/t to Deadspin)
