Aaron Hernandez jerseys still selling hot on eBay
Because of his recent troubles the NFL has stopped selling Aaron Hernandez jerseys, and the Patriots offers a replacement jersey for those who want to exchange it.
However, on eBay fans who listed Hernandez jerseys since he was charged with first-degree murder have been able to profit from it.
John Lamothe, a Patriots fan told he Boston Globe he was shocked to get $289 for a Hernandez jersey he put on eBay last week.
“I thought about giving it to Goodwill, but I didn’t think anybody would want it,” Lamothe said. “I thought I might get $15 for it.”
Lynn L’Heureux, who paid $100 for a Hernandez jersey, has seen the bidding reach $127 so far.
“I can’t think of any reason why people would want it,” L’Heureux said. “They might think it will go up in value later on, and maybe it will, but I’m not interested. I just don’t want it in my possession. I want to use the money to buy a jersey that reflects my pride in the Patriots.”
