We’d rather not authenticate these.
If the game-worn jersey market has passed you by and you’d really like to have a conversation piece, you won’t mind bidding on something for which you might take a little abuse.
ARod’s underwear is on eBay.
Saugus, MA-based Sportsworld is back with more game-used baseball underwear. After selling some Red Sox spandex earlier in the year, they’re now offering shorts once very closely aligned with Alex Rodriguez, Josh Beckett and Kevin Youkilis. The game-used undergarments were salvaged from the trash heap by a Red Sox employee who presumably offered them to Sportsworld. The eBay auction was pulled last Thursday after the auction description made it clear they hadn’t been washed.
You can’t sell dirty underwear on eBay, apparently, and so Sportsworld owner Phil Castinetti has added "washed" to the description.
‘So were they?’ asked the Boston Herald.
“They are now,” he laughed. “If they want them washed, they’re washed.”
Bidding on the Rodriguez spandex had hit $349 as of late Sunday night. The Youkilis spandex had reached $202.
