Watching the success of pro teams’ game worn jerseys has spurred some college programs to market their own.
The often-overlooked market for game worn college sports memorabilia might be on the verge of a mini-boom.
Jerseys and other game used memorabilia and equipment was once used for practice, given to the players themselves or handed down to new arrivals the following season. But there are plenty of alumni and some collectors willing to fork over a decent amount of cash to turn the sale of game worn jerseys into a money-making outlet.
One columnist in the Charleston Post & Courier thinks the players who make those jerseys into collector’s items deserve a share of the pie.
