There are still tickets available for the Super Bowl, but it's going to cost you.

A lot.

Three hours before the game, one fan outside the Superdome was selling a single ticket for the terrace level -- aka the nose bleed section -- for $1,500. That's almost double the face value.

Tickets were a little cheaper on NFL Ticket Exchange, the NFL's official ticket reseller, but not by much. Terrace-level tickets were going for $1,250 to almost $2,200. By comparison, tickets on the first level were practically a bargain, ranging from $2,400 to $2,600.
