How the times have changed
We all remember back when Luis Gonzalez's chewing gum was put on eBay. But now, a seller has done one better: an autographed game-worn Ryan Braun jockstrap and underwear.
The seller says he helped clean out Braun's locker and got to keep these "treasures." In a second auction he says Braun is an exclusive client to his company.
The current bid is at $36.
An autographed pair of game-worn batting gloves currently sit at $61.
My guess on the jockstrap auction: anything for a few bucks.
But here is what I wonder. Why would anyone buy that? It's disgusting. The auction makes no mention of the item being washed you know.
