(Newser) – A Bernard Madoff investment has finally made an honest profit, the New York Daily News reports. The Ponzi kingpin's pair of tickets for the New York Mets home opener tonight, face value $525 each, sold for $7,500 after a fierce eBay bidding war. Along with revenue from the sale of the rest of Madoff's season tickets, the money will go toward compensating victims of his investment scam.
