    Brewers now selling a $1,000 ticket with a fascinating twist

    And you thought baseball tickets were expensive when they reached three digits! The Milwaukee Brewers have unveiled a special $1,000 ticket that's an investment in the club's future.

    It's called a "timeless ticket." It's made of brass, personalized as you see above and limited to 1,000 fans, but those aren't the most important benefits. The Brewers' timeless ticket allows its owner one ticket to ANY future game of their choosing.

    Game 7 of the World Series? Timeless ticket. Opening day, the reigning champs are in town and Stubhub prices are going nuts? Timeless ticket. This is an investment, but if used correctly, it could certainly pay dividends. Keep in mind that the average World Series ticket was selling for $1,000 on the secondary market in Kansas City last year, and you can see how this makes sense for people of a certain means.

    The Brewers explain the timeless ticket further:

    This unique opportunity allows the owner to redeem their Timeless Ticket for an actual ticket to any single future Brewers game at Miller Park, whether it’s in 2015 or 2050, or whether it’s Opening Day or the 7th game of the World Series. Plus, the package now includes ticket vouchers to attend nine additional Brewers regular season games of the owner’s choice (excluding Opening Day and Postseason).

    To redeem the ticket, the owner just needs to contact the Brewers Box Office with their unique Timeless Ticket information as well as a photo ID and the date of the game he or she would like to attend. After redemption, the owner of the Timeless Ticket will keep the personalized brass statue to display. In addition, Timeless Ticket holders may purchase up to three additional companion tickets for the redeemed game at the single game box office price.
    All ticket redemptions are subject to availability and owners of the Timeless Ticket are advised to contact the Brewers Box Office with their selected game as early as possible. Redemptions for the Timeless Ticket will be become available once dates for public ticket sales have been announced.
    Those nine additional games are a nice bonus too, so you can get some immediate reward from plopping down $1,000. Because otherwise, this ticket puts its owner in a fascinating situation. It's the ultimate wild card. But it's also an itch in your pocket.

    Do you play it when the Brewers make the postseason? Do you wait for a World Series game? Is that not good enough? Do you need a World Series clincher? But what if the Brewers can't climb the ladder in the NL Central for a long time? Would you wait until 2050?

    You could probably buy a decent house in Milwaukee for a thousand bucks.

    Interesting gamble. Buying it shows you have faith in the team, and upper management, to make the right moves.

    Considering you get 9 other regular season games it's a pretty good deal. It averages out to $100 a game and one of those games can be a WS or playoff game if you wait long enough.

    A blow job and a lifetime of herpes would be more entertaining.

    County Stadium was a shithole, but a fun place to see a game

    Ive been there a few times when they were in the American League, and they were GoodSox. I wasn't able to visit the new one.

    I'd rather be ridden by a 21yo college girl with a hairy twat.
