Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Early on in the NFC Championship Game Sunday, it sure looked like the Minnesota Vikings would become the first team to play in a Super Bowl in their home stadium.

The team was up 7-0 and driving near mid-field when Case Keenum threw this pick-six to Eagles cornerback Patrick Robinson.

At about that very same time, get-in prices for Super Bowl LII were going for $5,500 a pop (more on that here).

We all know how the game itself turned out. Philadelphia would go on to score the final 38 points, dominating Minnesota in the process.

Now, those who were looking to cash in on a Vikings Super Bowl trip have been thrown for a huge loop.

“On Sunday night, one Vikings fan who had spent $18,000 on tickets on Tickpick resold them for $12,000,” Yahoo! Finance reported Wednesday.

The same report notes that the get-in price as of Monday morning was a mere $3,850, nearly $1,700 less than they were Sunday evening.

That’s some absolutely insane stuff right there.

It’s not as much that people aren’t interested in the Patriots-Eagles Super Bowl rematch. Instead, Vikings fans in the Minneapolis area had cornered the market on the tickets. After all, the game is being played locally and fans didn’t have to worry about doling out a ton of cash for for airplane tickets, hotels and the cost of actually feeding themselves in what is always an expensive market in Super Bowl host cities.

Even then, the drop in ticket prices is simply incredible.
