Question: I am starting to collect Super Bowl tickets and only want Full examples. Is there a reason why some Fulls are worth so much more than others?
Answer: Well, with any ticket, popularity or the memorable nature of the event itself plays a big role in valuation. For example, a New York Yankee World Series ticket is usually worth a premium because of the large collector base for Yankee memorabilia. When it comes to the value of Fulls versus Stubs, the standard procedure at some venues was to tear the tickets at the gate, leaving very few Fulls left for collectors to buy. If the Super Bowl was a well-attended one (and back in the day not all of them were total sellouts), chances are that a very low number of Fulls survived. This results in the major premium for some Full Super Bowl tickets.
