SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – More than $40,000 worth of Super Bowl tickets were stolen from a San Francisco station, reports Heather Holmes of local station KTVU.

Four men reportedly went inside a conference room at Hotel Nikko and nabbed the tickets for Sunday’s game between the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara.

Meanwhile, online ticket site Stub Hub says you can still buy tickets, if you’ve got $3,000 to spare.

Prices are holding steady, said Jason Deppen, StubHub’s director of field operations.

“We’re seeing prices as low as $3,000 to get in, so we are talking upper corner, upper end zone. Those prices are hovering around $3,000. The average price we’re seeing — $4,500, $4,700 — and prices get up to into the tens of thousands depending on suite levels, and lower sidelines of course,” Deppen said.

To sweeten the pot, StubHub is offering Fan Fair for buyers shelling out the big bucks. The company rented out the Great America amusement park before the game.

“This is actually a free experience for any StubHub customer, so if you buy your ticket on StubHub for the Super Bowl, this is a gift to you back from us. It’s a little surprise and delight, and something we like to do for all of our fans,” said Justin Finn, the company’s head of event marketing.

The Broncos and Panthers face off in Super Bowl 50 at 6:30 p.m. Sunday.
