What’s a ticket to watch the 1-21 Philadelphia 76ers worth? According to the secondary market, not much. This imgur post and associated Reddit thread involves a diehard Sixers’ fan claiming to have paid $9 more for a can of Coors Light than his ticket to Monday night’s loss to the Spurs, and it may well be possible. Here’s the photo:

A Reddit thread from 12 months ago says 24 oz cans of Bud Light sell for $11.25 at the Sixers’ (and Flyers’) arena, the Wells Fargo Center, which fits in with the information in this CSN Philly post. Thus, unless there’s a further markup for Coors Light, this guy would have obtained his ticket for under $2.25. SB Nation’s James Dator took a look at StubHub prices for Sixers games and found a plethora of ridiculously-cheap tickets, and while the cheapest ticket he found was $7 for Friday’s game against the Pistons, it’s quite possible a Monday night game against the Spurs could have gone for even less. While this fan may have gotten in for cheap, though, he still had to pay expensive beer prices, and he still had to watch the Sixers lose 119-68.

If watching this team suffer appeals to you, it’s quite easy to get in on the action. As of Tuesday night, there are 49 tickets available on StubHub for Friday’s game for under $10. And Jalil Okafor’s back from suspension! Still, the Sixers will certainly be hoping things turn around under new chairman of basketball operations Jerry Colangelo. Otherwise, beer sales might be their main source of revenue for the near future…
