If you want to see the Patriots battle the Seahawks this Sunday, you'd better hurry: The opportunity to get your hands on a Super Bowl ticket is getting more expensive by the minute.

The most recent data from TiqIQ, a ticket resale site, indicates that tickets to 2015's Super Bowl XLIX could be the most expensive in history. The "current average list price for the Super Bowl is $6,459.21" as of Jan. 25, according to TiqIQ, up from last year's average of $3,015.99 on this date—a 114.17 percent increase.

And data show this year's asking price is likely to rise, with the site's previous reports showing an average of $5,188.30, only last Friday. The current average actual sale price stands at $4,152.19. Looking over last year's ticket sales, the price peaked on Jan. 21 at $4,084.37, just a week and a half before the game, which averaged $2,645.12 on the game day, according to TiqIQ.

Asking prices are even higher on eBay, which is showing listings of up to $57,805 for four tickets, and $32,125 for two tickets—equivalent to $16,062.50 each. The auctions on eBay that are getting the most attention (25+ bids) however, are at a much lower price of around $7,900 for two tickets to Sunday night's game in Glendale, Arizona.

CNBC's and NBC News' sister company NBC Sports broadcasts the Super Bowl.
