Of course, the free tickets to the church event were soon quickly being resold for hundreds of dollars. We’ve seen them on Twitter for $300 a pop.

That makes this listing for them at $199.95 apiece on eBay a bargain.

Events at the megachurch typically attract a crowd. The three weekly Sunday services — 8:30 a.m., 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. — usually draw more than 45,000 people. Services last 90 minutes. The venue has seating for 16,800, but there is an overflow area of the super church that will be used for West’s events.
