Priceless: Man Takes Springfield Mom to See the Phillies
Chris Richman discovered tickets to the National League Championship Series were a pretty hot item this week, worth hundreds of dollars.
Richman nabbed two tickets for $150 after game 1 of the series so he could take his mother, Angela, who lives in Springfield, to a game, writes Erin McCarthy for The Philadelphia Inquirer.
Those $150 tickets ended up with a resale value of nearly $500 each.
Richman was tempted to sell, but in the end, the experience of being at the game with his mom, whose excitement level was 10 out of 10, won out.
“In the playoffs, something magical can happen at any game,” said Richman, 40, of South Philadelphia. “You can’t recreate those experiences.”
He and his mother had a similar experience at Game 4 of the 2008 World Series and Roy Halladay’s perfect game in Florida in 2010.
The chance to be among the playoff energy, “that’s worth more than a lot of money to me,” he said.
“And the chance to experience that with my mom, who is very important to me and has inspired my passion for sports … In 10 years, I’m telling that story.”
