A season ticket holder since 1993, Jones said he and his girlfriend had started talking about engagement rings a month ago. He had tickets to offer, though not the club-level seats the woman was seeking.
Jones said the woman lost his contact information and ended up reposting the Craigslist ad. He reached out again and made a deal.
The rings were appraised at $2,800.
The seller wanted to finish the trade in time for her husband’s 40th birthday earlier this week, but the family didn’t get to celebrate because her daughter had to go to the emergency room with a migraine.
“I think I’ll put the tickets in a card and get some balloons and dinner and celebrate his birthday tonight so he feels like he actually had one,” she wrote. “He was a little disappointed in how his day turned out so it’s time to make it up to him!”
