In business over 20 years, Sportsworld has moved to new digs.
Phil Castinetti wants you to know he sells more than underwear.
The owner of Saugus, MA-based Sportsworld has been a fixture in the east coast sports memorabilia market for 20+ years but he’s gained a little national attention for some of the…well, different…items he’s put on eBay lately. Spandex shorts used by Alex Rodriguez and Kevin Youkilis drew mainstream media attention last week. They sold for $420 and $305 each if you’re scoring at home.
But it’s the day-to-day business that has allowed Sportsworld’s brick-and-mortar shop to grow enough to need a new, larger location.
It’s good news for an industry that hopes to ride out the current economic crisis. The local paper stopped by to talk about the store, run in Red Sox country by a Yankee fan.
