FOXBORO (CBS) — While the New England Patriots wild card game is officially sold out, there are plenty of tickets available on the secondary market. Some are available for less than $100!

A wildcard playoff is not the game season ticket-holders were planning to attend, and while the field at Gillette Stadium is set to go, many fans like Jack Collins were expecting a bye-week. He has to work Saturday, so he unloaded some of his tickets to try and recoup some money.
“I’m taking a little bit of a hit because it’s so last minute,” Collins said.
In fact, Ace Ticket said they only have a few hundred tickets left. They are going fast because they’re unusually cheap.

Tickets start right at 100 bucks to get you into the door,” said Ryan Kelley, an Ace Ticket sales manager. “They’ll go up to $250 or a little bit more for some of the best seats in the house.”
Long-time fan Brad Chofay is taking advantage of the cheaper pricing.
“These were cheap. I got them for $105,” Chofay said. “That’s unheard of because typically it’s $200 for a single playoff ticket, never-mind $105 for two.”

“That’s one of the big reasons why I bought tickets,” one fan told WBZ-TV. “This could be Brady’s last game, so I definitely bought the tickets because of that.”
