Price: 6 God Meet and Greet Package, $1,000

Includes: Ticket in the first five rows; professionally taken photo with Drake; 6 God candle; 6 God incense holder; 6 God custom disposable camera; 6 God picture frame; 6 God foam hand; Summer Sixteen pins; Summer Sixteen patches; Summer Sixteen car freshener; Summer Sixteen "floaty pen"; Summer Sixteen bag

Experts Say: "That sounds like a lot of goofy cheap stuff that I think people are meant to ascribe a higher value to than [they] really should be," Viecelli says of the package. "The whole value is you theoretically get to stand next to Drake and prove it, and you get a really good seat. The rest of it seems like a lot of fluff. I guess it would mean something to a real fanatical fan."
