Donald Trump’s rallies have proven so popular that now tickets to his events are being scalped like rock concert tickets. A pair of tickets for the upcoming Dallas, Texas, event, for instance, is selling for up to $200 online, a report says.

Politico reported on Friday that tickets for Trump’s Dallas event ran out in short order, but tickets that went out to fans for free are being sold for big dollars on sites like Craigslist and eBay.

Tickets went up for grabs on Monday for the September 14th rally to be held at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, but only a few days later, the supply of 20,000 passes was already distributed.

However, fans may still have a chance to get their tickets if, that is, they are willing to pay for what were originally free tickets.

One eBay ad, for instance, had a pair of tickets for $200.

Saying, “Don’t miss this great event!,” another ad on eBay was selling a pair of tickets for a starting bid of $99.

On Craigslist, one Trump fan said that he couldn’t attend but was willing to sell his single ticket for $60 or a best offer price.

Another Craigslist ad was selling a pair of Trump rally tickets for $100.

Official ticket selling services like StubHub, though, are not selling the Trump rally tickets because they were originally free.
