NFL game-used collectors are intrigued by the league’s somewhat dramatic decision to allow pink cleats, wristbands and gloves for this month’s games.
The league tried to commit to a similar event last year, but nothing was really that visible and they took some heat for it. Apparently, they wanted no such questions this year because the pink was everywhere.
Of course, it’s a great cause, but it looked really strange to see it in a league for whom throwback jerseys represent daring and untucking one’s shirt is cause for a fine.
One week the Seahawks go lime green; the next it’s pink. I can’t wait for robin egg blue day.
The auctions should be fun to watch later this month. Here’s a slideshow of some images. You’ll see some of this stuff at NFL Auctions.
