Super Bowl XLV is less than two weeks away and if you plan watch the game live at Cowboys Stadium, chances are you’ve already purchased your tickets and made your travel arrangements. Not yet? There are still tickets up for the taking, in exchange for — depending on how close you want to be to the action — $2,131 to $22,729 per ticket on Ticketmaster.com. Ouch. Maybe we’ll watch Christina Aguilera open with the national anthem and the Black Eyed Peas at halftime from the comfort of our home.
What if we told you that there was a time when you could have bought a Super Bowl ticket for just $20? Granted, we’re talking about the 1970s. But even in 2010 dollars, $20 in 1976 would equal $76.65. Talk about inflation. In this slideshow, we look at Super Bowl tickets — and their prices — through the years.
