Former Oregon running back LaMichael James took to Twitter this week to out a jersey being sold by the school as not quite what it was purported to be.
The school’s new online auction site, OregonAuthentic.com, offered a Ducks’ throwback jersey it claimed was worn in a game against California. James found out about it and tweeted “I have my Oregon cal game jersey so whoever is selling it is a fraud lol pic.twitter.com/Z3EkTfVZ.
While it may have been somewhat humorous to the team’s former star who is now making NFL money, it wouldn’t have been quite so funny to a buy who purchased it under the assumption that the listing was correct.
The jersey was created last year, but the team’s Football Equipment Administrator admitted Tuesday night that it had made a mistake in listing it as worn in the game with the Golden Bears. It was meant for display.
The listing has since been updated and the school says those who bid have been contacted. Jesse Price of Examiner.com has been following the whole saga.
