DALLAS - Single game tickets go on sale for Dallas Cowboys Friday morning.

It's usually the way fans catch a game without buying season tickets or paying for pricey seat licenses. However, buying right now may be the best way to get in cheap.
 
Second-hand ticket brokers are finally able to exhale. The NFL lockout grinded sales to a halt at Dallas' Metro Tickets. With weeks before teams take the field, the second-hand market is now flooded with options, driving ticket prices even lower.

"The first pre-season game against Denver and I've got tickets for $59 face value for $5," said Robert Lodes, with Metro Tickets.

Lodes said supply is outweighing demand, and it's not just the pre-season.

Looking online, WFAA found nearly 12,000 seats for sale for the Cowboys' home opener against the Redskins.

More than 11,000 tickets are up for grabs for other home games.

The Cowboys may be selling single-game tickets at face value starting Friday, but right now a little searching can save you money.

"At least five of the 10 games we sell for face price or less," Lodes said.

But think of it like the stock market, you always want to jump in at the bottom because winning has a way of quickly changing all that.

"Price wise, they're at the bottom dollar," Lodes said. "There's no where else to go."
