It’s back to business for the Philadelphia Phillies who will face the San Francisco Giants in the National League Championship Series later this week. With some time off, fans have had time to savor Roy Halladay’s history-making no-hitter against the Reds in the Division Series.
Plenty of fans have been willing to sell their ticket stubs or acquire those held by others in order to try and make a buck on eBay. Over 600 Halladay no-hitter items were listed on eBay as of Tuesday night.
There are at least two different types of tickets available; those that were issued to season ticket holders and those made available later that contain no photographic images and are essentially computer driven. Not surprisingly, it’s the former that is selling for the most money.
Nicer stubs have been selling for $60-90 with the less attractive versions sometimes costing bidders less than $25.
Programs, newspapers and other items are on the block, too. So far, it appears there haven’t been any commemorative autographed items placed on the market.
Hunt Auctions, located in nearby Exton, PA, is in the heart of Phils’ country. President Dave Hunt was at the historic game and talked with the local newspaper about the market for what is just the second post-season no-hitter in baseball history.
