The number is

1

as this sequences encodes

218 - Two Hundred Eighteen
19 - Nineteen
780 - Seven Hundred Eighty
17 - Seventeen
11 - Eleven
9,000 - Nine Thousand
301 - Three Hundred One
6 - Six
8 - Eight
600 - Six Hundred
?
80 - Eighty
70 - Seventy

so we find a number which will fit

THEN SHE SENT THOSE SH?ES
