Heard enough about 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh and his ‘eight dollar’ Walmart pants? Yes? Too bad – because I’ve got more.
Never one to miss an opportunity to capitalize, the 49ers team store has taken the recent influx of Harbaugh news and has put a pair of game worn pants up for sale. The pleated tan khaki’s even come with a certificate of authenticity from the 49ers.
Unfortunately, I have to break the news that the pants aren’t from Walmart as they’re reportedly Dockers, a brand Walmart does not sell.
So how much would the pants set you back? Well more than eight dollars – $500 to be exact.
Yep – half a grand for a pair of worn pants.
Granted, teams selling game used merchandise in their team store is nothing new, but it’s not often a pair of pants comes up for sale. And frankly, in two months when this whole ‘Walmart pants’ thing blows over, I wouldn’t want to be the one explaining why you have a pair of used khaki’s framed on your wall.
