Secondary Market Heats Up for Shea Seats

Mix orange and blue and you get—well, a sort of brownish color. But what some enterprising folks are getting on eBay is most decidedly green.

At $869 a pair, you’d think seats from an old ballpark might be a tough sell. Tell that to Mets fans and collectors who scooped up the pick of the litter from the Shea Stadium pre-sale.

They’re having a blast flipping what they bought on eBay, earning a tidy profit for their minimal effort as true blue (and orange) Mets nuts who missed out try to snare a pair.

The demand for the seats painted in two certain colors is much bigger than the other two. Confused? The New York Post sits us down for a look at who’s buying and why.
