Two hours before Super Bowl 50, the cheapest ticket on StubHub was a cool $3,000. And once you get into the stadium, it doesn't get much cheaper.
It'll cost at least $13 to enjoy a cold one at the big game. That's the price for a 16-ounce souvenir can -- or a 20-ounce draft in a souvenir cup -- of Bud Light. If high-end beer is your thing, there are plenty of options at Super Bowl 50: Anchor Steam, Lagunitas IPA and 10 Barrel, among others, all of which cost $15 for a draft. These prices will come as a shock to some Carolina fans used to the $5 beers at Panthers home games this season.

Hungry? Hope you have a big budget. A pretzel goes for $8, and a bag of peanuts will set you back $7.
