Cash, a free place to stay and Allman Brothers tickets are just a few of the proposed swaps offered online by people scrambling to get into INVESCO Field to hear Barack Obama’s big acceptance speech tonight.

Offers advertised on ranged from a few hundred dollars to several thousand dollars for tickets.


“Hi There. I’m a card-carrying Democrat looking for 2 tickets to see an amazing moment in history tonight, willing to pay you in cash for your tickets,” one poster wrote.

But another ad-writer was put off by the dealmaking: “Pretty disgusting of people to sell FREE tickets to make $$ for themselves - have a heart and get a backbone.”
