Can this thing really be worth anything?

Well, I wouldn't have thought it would make front page news in the biggest city in the country, but it did, so who knows how much money someone is willing to blow.

Proceeds are going to charity, I think, so it's all for good.

Apparently it's worth upwards of $35,000...


Nice to see it's going to charity, but why did the Yankees give it back to the Red Sox? They shouldve kept it and auctioned it themselves:?:

It's up to $37,600. 116 people have bid so far.

I'm glad the proceeds are going to charity but only in America could something like this happen.

Would cost me more than a year's salary to buy that thing. It's great people are willing to donate money, but come on...you shouldn't need to buy a worthless piece of fabric to make a donation like that.

Not to mention the 85K (?) that was spent on a baseball that had nothing to do with the losing spell of a certain team...........

Yea, BUT it was a great marketing ploy by Harry Carry's.... that investment was a great one for them!

The bid from Kevin Meehan, the owner of Imperialcars.com in Mendon, Mass., was the highest

"I have three young boys that I take to the games and they would have killed me if I didn't buy the shirt."

$175,000 jersey for your kids to play around with? :o:

Follow back to the link for the jacket, and click on the feedback number of the guy who bought it. Look at the various things he has bought...

Quite an interesting collection of memorabilia...He's got a cool collection of tour jackets and various musical stuff.

That's pretty damn cool...

He might donate money anyway. This just gives this guy an excuse to donate more.




Normally I hate everything Red Sox/Yankees, but this I really didn't mind. I thought it was all in good fun (other than Hank Steinbrenners comments). Sure the Yankees wasted $30,000 digging it up, but in the end it turned into a $175,000 donation to charity. I don't see what is wrong with a net $145,000 donation to charity. If I was a millionaire and had more money than I really knew what to do with, and it turns out Hangar buried a Pierzynski jersey under whatever Cubs stadium is built next, and the money is going to charity, I would put in a bid on it.
