If you're looking for tickets to tonight's Sixers game in Philadelphia, or if you just feel like spending literally a dime, then look no further than StubHub, the online ticketing agent, which is selling tickets to the game for 10 cents.

The Sixers are playing the Detroit Pistons and the seats, while certainly cheap and certainly far from the court, aren't in the last section at The Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia; the Balcony Suites are located behind the 10-cent section. A day before the game, tickets in an adjacent section were selling for 95 cents.

According to the Sixers' team site, tickets in the mezzanine for games in November are selling for $17.76 or less, a price tag that's perhaps a tribute to the Thanksgiving holiday in the City of Brotherly Love. If tickets are purchased directly from the team site, those same 10-cent seats are $10.

Ironically, the "10-cent" game comes a day after NBA Commissioner David Stern said that he projects the league will bring in $5 billion in revenue this season.
