Here's a "Cardinal-centric" discussion of ticket prices to Super Bowl XLIII, with the following - stunning to me at least - prediction:
“We’re going to see close to face-value prices,” said Sean Pate, spokesman for online ticket broker StubHub. “As I click over (to the Web site) every few hours, something cheaper shows up.”
The story reports that the average list price at StubHub was $2552 on Friday, but dropping. A number of non-business cycle factors are cited as factors, including the long run of ineptitude for the Cardinals, and the fact that their fans don't need a trip to Florida to enjoy a bit of warm weather in the winter.
