Well, we're just a few days from playoff weekend, so just to remind us why we were wrong to spurn our mother's insistance that we become some sort of banker, we thought we'd check out eBay and see how much the highest-priced tickets are going for. We're only including auctions that have at least one bid. It's a little scary.

Redskins-Seahawks. $1,700 for four.
Patriots-Broncos. $790 for two.
Panthers-Bears. $1,600 for four.
Steelers-Colts. $1,114.50 for four.

So, you know, bust open those piggie banks. Because it ain't gonna get any cheaper come conference championship time.
