Madoff Mets Seats Bid Higher Than Expected!

Here’s good news: at least one Madoff investment is turning out to be worth more than expected.

On Wednesday, the trustee overseeing the liquidation of Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities put a pair of tickets for Monday’s opening Mets game Citi Field on say at eBay. The face value of the tickets is $525 each. Right now the top bid is $1,881. The seats are in the eighth row on Section 11, between home plate and first base, just behind the Mets’ dugout.

So far, 24 bids have been made by seven bidders. Delta Club Gold seats that were auctioned by the team earlier went for $860. That appears to indicate that people are willing to pay a premium to sit in Bernie’s seats.
