Super Bowls come and go but the hunt for tickets never ends for Derek Stebner.
The Arizona real estate developer has made it a personal challenge to try and collect full tickets for all 156 different Super Bowl ticket variations. He’s got a pretty good start in just six years.
After buying one of the best ticket collections via SCP Auctions in 2016, Stebner turned his attention toward the variations, which were common during the game’s early days when they were color coded by section. Stener has all but ten so far with 69 of them carrying PSA 10 grades. Some of his tickets (full ones only, no stubs) are the only ones known to still exist.
He talked with Yahoo Sports about his collection and his ongoing quest to fill those few holes.

An outside buyer has made an offer of $1.1 million for the 1958 Alifaboget Pele rookie card that’s been trading on Rally.
That offer would represent a 249.2% return over the card’s initial IPO last year ($10 per share) and a 43.1% ROI over the last traded price. If shareholders vote to accept the offer, it would be the first million dollar soccer card ever sold.
The card was originally purchased for $288,000 in a Goldin auction in the fall of 2020 before going onto Rally’s fractional shares market.
Those who own shares in the card will now have 48 hours from Wednesday morning’s announcement to cast their ballot on whether to accept or reject the offer.
