Bernie Met-off

Wednesday, April 8, 2009

Are you interested in some good seats for Opening Day? Want to get them cheap? Meet the Mets - Madoff Style.

On April 7, 2009, Madoff Trustee filed a motion with the Bankruptcy Court seeking approval for the sale of Bernie's New York Mets tickets through an online auction conducted on eBay. The hearing on the motion will be held on Tuesday April 14, 2009 at 10:00 a.m.

Well, since he can't make it this season - you can do it for him! Situated two rows behind home plate, you can enjoy all Citi Field home games, along with a friend, for ticket prices ranging from $295-$695 a ticket depending on the ranking of the opposing team. All the info can be found at the Madoff Liquidation Sale Website.

Let's just hope it aint another scheme...

Update - 12:45PM on Monday:

Jailed financier Bernard Madoff had two Delta Club Platinum season tickets which had a face value of up to $695 per game. For the previous three days the tickets for Monday’s game, against the San Diego Padres, have been the subject of an intense bidding war on internet auction site eBay, eventually fetching $7,000. A ferocious final half-hour of bidding saw their price almost double from $4,000.

The tickets were sold by Irving Picard, a solicitor with the firm Baker & Hostetler in New York which was appointed to liquidate Madoff’s assets.
