Man Sells Raffle Ticket For Shelby GT500, Buyer Wins Car Minutes Later (Video Inside)

An attendee at QuakeCon (a video game convention) recently became infamous for being caught on tape committing the blunder of a lifetime; selling a winning raffle ticket for a 2011 Ford Shelby GT500.

This wasn’t your ordinary raffle either. To get the ticket (one of 100) you had to win one of the convention-sponsored tournaments or contests, which ostensibly took some skill, and made for very good odds. One raffle ticket winner sold his for $200 moments before the draw, only to find that his was the winner.

Presumably, the winner was not a car guy, otherwise we would have seen him collapse with anguish upon seeing this. The bald, dorky looking ticket buyer, on the other hand, looks unbearably smug, and it’s a perfectly understandable reaction.
