Johan Santana threw the first no-hitter in New York Mets history at Citi Field Friday June 1 and the Mets are reprinting tickets from the historic night.

More than 27,000 Mets ticketholders have proof they sat in the stands for the franchise’s historic first no-hitter on June 1. Soon 42,000 more fans will have the same evidence.

The Mets have announced plans to sell reprinted tickets from Johan Santana’s masterpiece.

Immediately following the game, tickets from the contest were placed on eBay for upwards of $200. Stubs from the game are going for about $100 a piece on the auction site.

The reprinted tickets go on sale Monday, June 11 at 10 a.m. for $50.

All 41,922 seats at Citi Field will have tickets reprinted.

Partial season ticket holders and those with tickets plans that did not include the last Friday night’s game can purchase tickets at a presale beginning June 8.

Fans with full-season plans will receive complimentary reprints, though there will still be shipping fees.
