Six and ten

A translator's problem:

A guy who is a Bears fan (but lives in LA) has bought a dish antenna because he thinks that the Bears will get to the Super Bowl. He has paid 4000 $ for the dish and is deceived. He says:
"I spent four grand for the dish.
And what do I get? Six and ten!"

My question is: What does he mean by "six and ten"?
