Want to claim you were at Johan Santana's no-hitter even though you did not attend?

The New York Mets are selling tickets from the game for $50 a pop, but limiting it to four per customer.

Season-ticket holders will receive a complimentary reprint of their ticket.

The tickets go on sale Monday at 10 a.m. ET at In all, each of the 41,922 seats in Citi Field will be reprinted for sale.

"Fans can select a seating category and receive the best available seat in that location," the team said in a statement.

The Mets aren't the first team to give a special game this sort of treatment.

The Marlins re-sold tickets to Roy Halladay's perfect game in 2010, when he pitched the Philadelphia Phillies to a 1-0 win, selling over 3,000 tickets in the first four hours of their release.
