The Florida Marlins had one great thing happen this season: a no-hitter. They decided to sell the unsold tickets as a collectors item. Well ... they managed to mess that up too.
The Miami Marlins aren’t even playing anymore this season, and they’ve still found a way to mess things up.
The team announced that it would be selling 9,100 unsold tickets for its season finale on Sept. 29, 2013, when Henderson Alvarez threw a walk-off no-hitter at Marlins Park. Not entirely unheard of, the commemorative ticket sale made some sense — until the team put the wrong date on the $15 collectibles.
The folks over at Deadspin have obtained a screenshot of one of the commemorative PDF tickets (yes, the team is charging $15 for an unusable PDF), and the date on the ticket is Sunday, Oct. 3, 2013 (a date that doesn’t even exist).
The 62-100 Marlins certainly won’t be playing any October baseball this year, but check out the photo below to see the ticket claiming that they will be.
