I’ve never seen the infatuation with paying large sums of money for a piece of clothing that someone previously sweated in, no matter how famous they are.

 

That obviously can’t be said about everyone and was put on full display Sunday night.

The price? A staggering $45,578, per ESPN’s Darren Rovell.

That’s a lot of salami for a jersey that will likely become nothing more than a fancy piece of wall art or spend eternity behind a glass case in some dimly lit room.
