KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A suburban Kansas City woman who posted a Craigslist ad offering to swap her wedding ring set for tickets to a Chiefs-Broncos game has found a buyer — a two-decade season ticket holder who said he now can offer a more important deal to his fiancee.
The Overland Park, Kan., woman posted the ad last week seeking tickets for the Dec. 1 game at Arrowhead Stadium. Some criticized her for lacking sentiment in giving up rings for tickets, but she has clarified they were from a previous marriage.
On Thursday, the woman, who asked to remain anonymous, sent an email to local media saying she had made the transaction.
“It’s official! I have tickets to the game!!!” the woman said. “We met at a jewelry store so they could verify the ring was real and matched the appraisal I had provided him.”
She was happy with the deal: Four tickets to the Broncos game and two tickets to the Nov. 24 Chargers game, all in section 123 near the end zone.
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 and contacted the seller.
