Johan Santana threw the first no-hitter in New York Mets franchise history last Friday, and now the Mets and fans with tickets to that game are reselling the tickets, reports Jesse Lawrence of Huffington Post Sports:

The Mets first no-hitter is going for 146 percent more then stubs for Halladay's second ever post season no-hitter. Currently, there are over 50 stubs for Johan's no-hitter on eBay, some with a buy-it-now price of well over $200. Our average of $182 is 119 percent higher than the average price for Mets tickets in 2012.

Tickets to Santana's game are going for "well over $200," according to Lawrence. The list of tickets from the historic game that are now being sold on e-Bay can be found here.

Meanwhile, Darren Rovell tweeted on Thursday afternoon that the Mets are reselling tickets to the game for $50 each but they'll be given for free to Mets season ticket holders:
