Not so grand: Super Bowl tickets reach $1,000
The league announced today that for the first time, face value of 25% of the tickets for this season's game in Tampa will be $1,000.
That's a little more than the value of my 401k at the moment. About 75% of the tickets will go for only $800, and there will be 1,000 tickets priced at the rock-bottom value of $500.
So if you've got the dough, and some connections, you can probably go to the game.
Tickets for last season's game topped out at $900, though the average price of resold tickets on StubHub was about $4,300, the Associated Press reported.
