One lucky baseball fan snagged a ticket to the World Series for a whopping $6 — including processing fees.

Deadspin posted a copy Monday night of the StubHub receipt showing that a man named Erik bought a ticket to Game 1 of the World Series at Boston’s Fenway Park for $3.00, plus a $1.00 service fee and a $2.00 delivery fee. The cheapest ticket in the same section is going for more than $750, with standing room only tickets to the park going for more than $380. It’s unclear exactly hoe Erik lucked out so big, but it was likely a mistake by the seller, quickly capitalized on.

The Red Sox will square off against the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 1 of the best-of-seven series on Wednesday.
