Madoff Mets tickets fetch $7,500

NEW YORK, April 12 (UPI) -- Two opening-day Mets tickets, part of a season-ticket package owned by investor Bernard Madoff's company, fetched $7,500 in an online auction Sunday, eBay said.

The price spiked in the final minutes of the auction, CNN reported. The final price for the tickets almost doubled from $3,800 two hours prior to the auction's close.

There was a bidding war between two parties, the news network said.

The eBay listing for the tickets to Monday's game said the face value for each ticket was $500.

The trustee tasked with liquidating Madoff's assets filed a motion with a New York bankruptcy court Tuesday to sell the tickets as part of his liquidation, aimed at retuning money to deceived investors.

The motion values at $60,750 two season tickets, which are located in the Delta Club Gold section of Citi Field, the Mets new ballpark.
