Pair of underwear Jeremy Lin (allegedly) wore in college for sale on eBay for $1,000


Let’s cut to the chase and highlight the considerable salesmanship abilities exhibited by the purveyor of the underwear in question in the item’s eBay listing (via BuzzFeed):

My brothers friend went to Harvard and was in the same dorm, got his boxers from the dryer on accident. Got them from him for $100 because hes stupid. Buy now and these could be worth alot in the future.

“On accident”? Right. Also, as far as the assertion that the person who sold these pair of drawers for $100? “Hes” most certainly stupid, indeed. And how about his “brothers” friend? While they both may be shortsighted regarding the relative value of a pair of underwear that Jeremy Lin might have (but probably didn’t) wear while attending Harvard, I bet they at least have mastered the ability to use an apostrophe. And I bet the two use the apostrophe “alot.” Just saying.

And before paying $1,000 for a pair of underwear, shouldn’t a potential buyer at the very least expect a bit more as it pertains to assurances that these are actually Jeremy Lin’s underwear? Seems a little sketchy to me.

Oh, wait: an excerpt from the listing related to the item’s condition does shed some light on that very issue:

Acceptable: An item with obvious and significant wear but is still operational.

Good to know. Good to know. Because there is nothing worse the nonoperational underwear, if you know what I mean. Another plus: no apparent evidence of any skid marks, either. Which is nice.
