Super Bowl XLII tickets still on the expensive side
I feel like I should periodically update you on the scalping, er, secondary market as Super Bowl week continues to unfold.
But if you haven't made the decision to come by now, are you realistically going to?
Anyway, the latest numbers this Wednesday afternoon from TicketsNow show an average price of $4,525, with the following markets leading in number of tickets purchased: Boston (26 percent), New York (16), Phoenix (10), Chicago (6).
The cheapest seat available was just above $2,000.
The last numbers I got from StubHub were Monday, when the average price was $4,218.
The highest face value for tickets this year is $900 for club seats. The top price is sure to hit $1,000 next year. But it still will be well below market value.
