DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - A pair of rare unused tickets from Super Bowl One in 1967 are up for auction this Saturday night on HA.com. This includes the envelope they were mailed in. 

Heritage Auctions Sports Consignment Director Chris Nerat says, "They are estimated to sell for more than $30,000 in an online auction this weekend. The tickets come from the personal collection of Homer Hall, who worked in Washington, D.C., for Oregon Congressman Al Ullman.

The cost of the tickets, which are consigned by Hall's daughter, was just $12. Nerat says, "The tickets were mailed from Los Angeles to Washington just six days before the game, and Hall was either unable or unwilling to make the cross-country trek to the game, and the tickets disappeared for decades. " Nerat says, "These tickets are comparable to buried treasure."
