  • The 'cursed' Ortiz jersey on eBay

    And it is up to a staggering $62,400.00
    I think they should bury a lot more.

    Why did it cost the yankees $50,000 to get it out of there? All you need is one guy with a jackhammer working overtime...factoring all the damage and refilling the hole, i'm thinking minimum $5,000-$8,000...amazing how the jersey is up to $62,000, its not like the jersey led to an 86 year curse or anything...knock on wood

        I don't know what you mean by this? People have spent more money on dumber things and this atleast is going to a good cause.

            You don't have to bid on a shirt to donate to a good cause. The good cause argument doesn't fly. Yes, people have spent more money on dumber things, therefore the dumbing down of America.

              Or spend 1300 dollars on a corn flake in the shape of Illinois!

              Seriously though, i dont think the jersey is worth that much!

              Just a note to all the active members of BBF, I consider all of you the smartest baseball people I have ever communicated with and love everyday I am on here. Thank you all!

                It definitely does fly... You are basically arguing that if something is given in return, it is not a good cause. Charity auctions/raffles/car washes/yard sales/anything is stupid because there are other ways of donating. Don't see what you're trying to accomplish with that.

                      True, but some people need an incentive to donate to charity. Right or wrong, good or bad, that's a fact.

                        You are correct, and it is not wrong. However in some cases, it illustrates the dumbing down of America. Look at it this way, how many of the losing bidders' donated their losing bid to the Jimmy Fund?
