The deal was a little too good to be true, but for one lucky baseball fan, a once-in-a-lifetime trip to the World Series only cost him $9.08.

Jordan Benedict was on StubHub searching for tickets to tonight's game between the Houston Astros and the Los Angeles Dodgers when he spotted the unbelievable offer.

For less than $10 a piece, two seats to watch history in the making.

"Since this was such an insane deal, I felt the need to reach out to StubHub customer service," Benedict said in a post on Facebook. "They were beyond accommodating and informed me that they would unfortunately be refunding my tickets and giving them back to the seller so they can repost them at the appropriate price."

To be so close to the World Series only to have those tickets snatched away had to be disappointing. But then, something amazing happened, Benedict says.

StubHub contacted Benedict and said since he was able to find those World Series tickets at such an unprecedented price, they'd honor the deal.

"They were going to honor the purchase price and give me two tickets in a similar area of the stadium," Benedict wrote.

Benedict says he and a friend will be watching Game 2 together tonight for less than $20. Now that's what we'd call a home run!
