KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A longtime Kansas City Chiefs fan says he swapped six game tickets for a wedding ring set advertised on Craigslist.
The buyer, 49-year-old Kansas City resident Rusty Jones, said he first learned of the ring offer last week through a story in The Kansas City Star. He contacted the seller, who wanted to swap the rings and surprise a loved one with tickets to the Dec. 1 game at Arrowhead Stadium, The Kansas City Star reported (http://bit.ly/1hKTWH5) Friday.
The tickets are a hot commodity as the Chiefs have started the season 9-0, and the December home game against Denver could have playoff implications.
A season ticket holder since 1993, Jones said he and his girlfriend had started talking about engagement rings a month ago. He had tickets to offer, though not the club-level seats the seller was seeking. Nonetheless, his offer worked: Four tickets to the Broncos game and two tickets to the Nov. 24 Chargers game, all in section 123 near the end zone.
Jones said the seller lost his contact information and ended up reposting the Craigslist ad. He reached out again and made a deal.
The rings, which the newspaper said were from the seller's previous marriage, were appraised at $2,800.
The seller has asked to remain anonymous to avoid spoiling the surprise.
