The sports card industry’s "memorabilia card" craze has not gone unnoticed in the civilized world. A popular snarky website (no, not this one) has cut up John Gotti’s old prison uniform and is selling the swatches.
TheSmokingGun.com has made it’s share of news over the years. The website feeds on unique celebrity news and now it’s owners are peddling a new book.
To promote it, they’re selling little pieces of the prison-worn clothing of the late mobster John Gotti….an outfit that was (what else) stolen by another prisoner when he worked in the laundry room. The swatches have been attached to a special bookmark.
TheSmokingGun has had the tan-coloured pants and button-down shirt stashed in its offices since shortly after the former head of New York’s Gambino crime family died of cancer in 2002, at the age of 61.
