A little while back, you may have heard that Mike Lowell's game used jock-strap got pulled off of eBay for being "adult-oriented material."
Well, there's more stuff available again.
Some dude named Phil Castinetti of a shop called SportsWorld in Saugus, MA has gotten his hands on a large collection of Red Sox All-Star underwear and he’s selling everything on eBay. And if you think that's gross, this is even worse. The rag of choice in Beantown, The Boston Herald, says that at the end of the season, the Sox throw stuff like this out and some enterprising dumpster-diving Fenway employees retrieved all of it. It's not pretty, but it pays the bills.
The bidding and selling of the items has been bizarre to say the least.
While Jason Varitek's spandex underwear went for $255, seldom used Matt Clement - who didn't make an appearance in 2007 - had his spandex underwear go for $430.
Equally strange is that Manny Ramirez's famous 'do rag has only gotten up to only $26 on bidding so far. And no one wants Manny's spandex underwear, which is stuck at $9.99.
Of course, people normally bid on items right before their time is set to expire, but I don't think anyone really wants Manny's stuff. I'm convinced he hasn't taken a shower in 3 years.
Papelbon's spandex is also available, in case you were wondering. And I know you weren't.
On the plus side though, at least this means Red Sox Nation's Christmas shopping will be done soon.
