NEW YORK (CNN) - We know the teams: Ravens versus 49ers, but the price of admission? Thousands.

And in some cases, tens of thousands of dollars.

Going to the Super Bowl is going to be an expensive endeavor. it's simple supply and demand. The Super Dome in New Orleans holds 72,000, but a lot more people than that are looking for tickets.

So how much will it cost you? About $2,000. That's how much the cheapest seats are going for on seatcrunch.com. Ticketmaster and StubHub are about the same, and that's up in the nosebleed section.

Think about it. one ticket to the Super Bowl, or you could buy 1,400 rolls of toilet paper.

Want to get on the 50 yard line, in the lower-level? That will set you back about $14,000, or you could buy a new Ford Fiesta.

Or you could buy a part of a suite. Ten tickets, catering and parking for about $66,000.

Or instead of going to New Orleans and buying that suite, you could send your kid to Louisiana State University and pay for three years of tuition and fees.

The prices may seem extreme, and keep in mind, we're just looking at the cost of the ticket. There's also food, lodging, and the flight to get there.

Still, many die-hard fans will pay the price, because, after all, it's the battle of the brothers, you've got Ray Lewis, and of course, it is the Super Bowl.
