Hey, you’ve got admire this person’s moxie.

The World Series shifts to Citi Field, starting Friday. At Stub Hub, ticket prices for Game 3 range from $550 to $800,000.

That’s right, no extra zeros in that number.

And someone is trying to get $800,000 for standing-room only tickets.

Like I said, that’s a pretty bold move. And, I suspect, that won’t be something that Stub Hub allows to be on its site for long. But I don’t know how Stub Hub works, because USA Today found tickets that were going for $1 million. Yikes

Other tickets were being sold for between $14,000 and $20,000.
