According to ESPN New York, the New York Mets will be re-selling their tickets from when Johan Santana made history, having the team's first no-hitter game ever.

The Mets want all their fans to feel like they attended the game. For those who didn't, this is what the product is aimed for.

Season-ticket holders will receive a complimentary reprint of the ticket. The tickets will cost $50 and they're four per customer.

"Fans can select a seating category and receive the best available seat in that location," the team said in a statement.

The "tickets" will be on sale next Monday at 10:00 AM at their website, mets.com. Fans can pick from each of the 41,922 seats.

The Philadelphia Phillies did this exact same thing two years ago when Roy Halladay pitched a perfect game. They were able to sell 3,00 tickets.

Personally, I think this is just a dumb idea. The people who were actually there won't be happy with this, as any person can say they went to the game. Along with that, them having the ticket wouldn't be as meaningful. And for $50, you can trick the folks into thinking you actually went there. 

Oh well.
