AP Television - AP Television Clients OnlyNew York - January 30, 20141. Close, Super Bowl tickets2. Wide, StubHub outlet3. SOUNDBITE (English) Glenn Lehrman, StubHub spokesman"Right now the average price is around $2800, the median price is around $2300. I think the lowest ticket sold was around $1150 and that was for an upper corner. The most expensive is around $13,500 and that's for a lower-level club seats on the 50-yard line. What we are seeing right now is what we call 'get-in prices', what's the cheapest price I can get in. You can get in right now for about $1400 so that's about as low as we've ever seen in the three days before Super Bowl. You're still seeing tickets on the high-end, good seats are still what you typically are used to seeing them for, you know, $8000 $9000 for good club-level seats, but it's that kind of lower-end ticket that's really going to give people an opportunity to go to the game this year."AP Television - AP Television Clients OnlyEast Rutherford, New Jersey - January 15, 20144. Wide, MetLife StadiumAP Television - AP Television Clients OnlyNew York - January 30, 20145. SOUNDBITE (English) Anastasia Danias, Senior Vice President and Chief Litigation Officer, NFL"While the league incorporates security devices into the tickets every year, hundreds of fans are turned away at the gate believing they have bought the real thing. This year it's an 80,000 seat stadium at MetLife so there is a fair amount of inventory out there. Not necessarily so much more or less than in previous years but there is a fair amount. What's different this year is that normally that inventory is kind of dispersed over the two weeks. Because there was so little sales last week, there's a lot of inventory available now than the typically is three days before a game. You can see it on the front of the ticket, there is a laser-cut date that you can see through to the back. It is not simply printed on, it's actually cut with a laser. It's very difficult to do the diecut, but with a laser cut you could see when you hold it up to the light that you can actually see through the ticket and that it is not just printed on. Finally, on the back of the ticket we've got thermochromic ink that's used on the bottom graphic which means if you apply heat to it either by rubbing it vigorously or by putting it to a heat source, it will disappear. When it cools off it will reappear."
