But the Boston Globe noticed that the jerseys have become hot items on eBay. With the ever growing sports memorabilia market, it could be possible some are thinking they’re getting a item that will be valuable down the line.
“I thought about giving it to Goodwill, but I didn’t think anybody would want it,” Jason Lamothe said. “I thought I might get $15 for it.”
He sold it for $289.
“I can’t think of any reason why people would want it,” Lynn L’Heureux said. “They might think it will go up in value later on, and maybe it will, but I’m not interested. I just don’t want it in my possession. I want to use the money to buy a jersey that reflects my pride in the Patriots.”
She apparently is unaware of the trade in deal. But her jersey has reached $127 so far, she paid $100 for it new.
Sixteen year old Brett Iannazzo put his signed Hernandez Super Bowl jersey on eBay. The jersey is no longer worth keeping in his house he feels.
“I loved Hernandez. I had his rookie jersey. Whenever I got a double in baseball, I’d do his end zone dance; take out the briefcase and make it rain,” he said. “Now, I’m done with that. I’m done with him.”
