NEW YORK (AP) - A federal bankruptcy court says it will allow the sale of New York Mets season tickets owned by Bernard Madoff’s company.

Some April seats already have been sold for individual games. Under the court’s ruling Tuesday, the rest may be offered online as a package.

The starting bid will about $30,000, which is roughly half their value.

Madoff pleaded guilty to charges that his investment advisory service actually was a multibillion Ponzi scheme that paid longtime clients with money from new ones. He is jailed, awaiting a June sentencing for charges that carry a sentence of up to 150 years in prison.
