From QuakeCon 2010, Proof That Sometimes It's Better Not to Sell Your Raffle Ticket

Until Saturday, only a few thousand folks had taken a look at the Vimeo offering titled "Quakecon 2010: Attendee Blunder of the Year." But that number skyrocketed after AutoBlog, then Jalopnik, took a closer peek at the contents of the video, which was filmed at the Hilton Anatole a few days ago.

Turns out, during the event -- which Patrick covered at some length -- organizers doled out 100 raffle tix to winners of the con's myriad tourneys. But one gamer, who apparently wasn't feeling particularly lucky, sold his ducat to another dude for the low, low price of $200 -- a bargain, right, considering the prize was a new Shelby GT500, which sells for, let's say, $50,000.
