ARLINGTON (CBSDFW.COM) – Sunday was an early Christmas for Cowboys fans as they clinched their first playoff spot since 2009.
Monday, a crowd of fans hovered around AT&T Stadium still trying to soak it all in.
“That was amazing! That was shocking!” Carlton Robertson exclaimed before turning to yell at the people waiting in line with him for a stadium tour. “Right Cowboys fans?? Right?” he asked to a resounding cheer.
Die-hard season ticket holders had a hard time remembering their last post season game.
“Whoa,” Bill Jennings, a season ticket holder since 1989 said as he tried to recall his last playoff experience. “Since the Giants beat the Dallas cowboys in the old stadium. That’s the last time.”
Which is why season ticket holders are willing to pay hundreds of dollars to cash in vouchers sent out before the season started for post season tickets.
Across the street from the stadium, non-season ticket holders pay even more.
Randy Moore bought his tickets online during the game.
“In section 129, three rows off the field, we paid $1100,” Moore said.
And was it worth it? “Yeah,” Moore laughed. “Anything to see the ‘Boys win.”
And prices are likely going higher. In fact, vendors say playoff tickets are suddenly the hot Christmas gift.
“So, I think that is pushing sales right now,” said Hank Wendorf, owner of Ticketsource.com. “Once our opponent is set over the weekend then I think it will really explode.”
Wendorf said the highest ticket prices would likely come from a Green Bay Packers match up since it is an old rivalry and Packers fans travel well, driving up demand.
