It’s not often you can buy a game-worn jersey on eBay–and get it directly from the player.
Hockey prospect Justin Hodgman spent a memorable year with the Fort Wayne Komets of the International Hockey League. His team wound up playing for the Turner Cup–the minor league’s version of Lord Stanley’s championship award.
As much fun as he had on the ice, he wasn’t getting wealthy off it. As a Canadian, he couldn’t even pick up a part-time job to pad his minor league salary. So…with the season over and a baby on the way, the 20 year-old has opted to put one of his game-worn jerseys up for bid on eBay.
The Ft. Wayne News-Sentinel caught the auction and offered the story online.
