Thank you for your question. Here is what I have found:
Although I have found few sites that mention this collection, only one
site gives a price for these tickets.
Danbury Mint sells this complete collection, including collectors
album, at $15.95 per ticket, delivered bimonthly. Since there has been
36 Super Bowls to date, this would put the approximate value of your
collection at $500-$600 dollars.
Here is the description on their website:
22KT GOLD SUPER BOWL TICKETS
# For each Super Bowl, a unique ticket design is created to
commemorate the event. Now, you can own the coveted tickets to each
Super Bowl, re-created in genuine 22kt gold collector editions!
# To create each ticket, a skilled craftsman meticulously
hand-inscribes every minute detail of the original, both front and
back, in raised relief on a steel die. The die is used to strike the
relief on thin sheets of paper backed 22kt gold foil. The result is an
astonishing three-dimensional gold image in high relief.
# Each ticket is encased in vinyl and mounted on a 9" x 12" Collector
Panel that displays both sides of the ticket. The Collector Panel also
features a full-color reproduction of the original ticket along with
that game's statistics. You will also receive a Collector's Album, at
no additional charge, to exhibit this superb collection.
# The first ticket and Collector Panel in the collection can be yours
for just $4.95. Thereafter, two tickets will be sent to you each month
at $15.95 per ticket, plus shipping and handling.
# Officially authorized by the NFL.
I have also searched for a good online auction site where you can sell
these tickets, such as SportsBid, among others. I have concluded that
the best place to sell your tickets, in terms of potential audience,
is still at Ebay Sports, which is below:
The other choices were simply too small and cannot compare to Ebay's
nearly 200,000 sports memorabilia listings.
Google Search Strategy:
22kt OR "22 karat" OR "22 kt" Super-Bowl Tickets OR Ticket
I hope this helps!

Willaby and Ward is the company that makes all the real Super Bowl
tickets as well, which is the reason why it appears on your
collection. The Danbury Mint's ticket collection should be identical
to yours. These are publically available prices.
I had researched other auction sites devoted to sports memorabilia in
hopes of finding a more exclusive audience in order to maximize your
auction value, but simply none of them has the numbers EBay does. I
have also tried searching for some kind of auction of these tickets on
these other sites, but it appears no one else is selling them.
I have found however, one person who is selling them, but no price is
listed. Here is the listing information:
* Item: gold superbowl tickets
* Specifications: Selling
* Contact: 580 526 3438
* Date: 01.11.02
collection 1 to 37 super bowl tickets 22kt. gold (in book)
Hope this helps!
