It was one of those stories that makes you say, why doesn’t something like that ever happen to me?! Erik Jabs, a 32-year-old school teacher from Jefferson Hills, Pa., purchased a ticket to game one of the 2013 World Series for $6! Or so he thought.Jabs saw the $6 ticket on StubHub and he quickly used his app on his phone and purchased the ticket. He got an email confirmation from StubHub along with the ticket, which he immediately printed and posted a photo of on Twitter.

However, just a few hours after he bought the ticket, Jabs received an automated email and voicemail from StubHub telling him that his $6 World Series ticket was, in fact, too good to be true. StubHub was going to cancel his transaction and return him his $6.

After many media outlets reported on the story of the man with the $6 ticket, StubHub  issued a press release to say they would send Jabs to World Series game one at Fenway Park on them! They even upgraded his ticket, moving him from row WW to row CC in the same section of his original ticket, a $750 value.

Jabs is a baseball junkie who attended 108 games this past season and is an avid Red Sox fan.
