NEW YORK (AP) - For $810, you can put yourself in Bernard Madoff's place - his Citi Field seats, that is.
The trustee overseeing the liquidation of Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities put a pair of tickets for Monday's Citi Field opener on sale on eBay on Wednesday. As of 5 p.m., the current bid was $800 for the tickets, seats 5-6 in the eighth row in section
11, just to the home plate side of the New York Mets' dugout.
There was a deadline of 8:21 p.m. EDT Friday to bid for the seats, which are called Delta Club Gold and come with access to the Delta Club behind home plate. The tickets retail for $525 apiece, and the $800 bid for the pair was the only one that had been made.
