World Series: Got stubs?

Associated Press
PHILADELPHIA ó Got stubs?
Never before has there been such a frenzied market for World Series ticket stubs ó strips of paper usually relegated to scrap books or picture frames after the last out.
But with Game 5 suspended in the sixth inning with Philadelphia and Tampa Bay tied 2-all, ticketholders know those tattered, drenched stubs have plenty of value left.
Within hours of the announcement that the game would resume tonight, buyers and sellers began flocking to Web sites looking to buy or sell tickets for anywhere between $200 and $7,500.
Fans in this title-starved city ó none of the four major professional teams has won a championship in 25 years ó long for a chance to see the Phillies, who lead the Series 3-1, clinch the second championship title in team history.
On StubHub.com, 50 tickets were available for resale Tuesday afternoon, said corporate communications manager Joellen Ferrer. Prices ranged from $599 to $3,500 on the Web site, which resells tickets through an agreement with Major League Baseball.
Many posts made emotional appeals for tickets, as buyers hoped sentimentality would trump greed.
