Another poker item hits EBay

Posted by Steve Ruddock on Apr 08, 2011 Posted in Poker Gossip | No Comments »

The good people at BLUFF Magazine picked up on this story yesterday, when they discovered a new poker-related item on EBay, and while it is gold and comes from winning a prestigious tournament, it’s only gold in color and worth far less than a WSOP bracelet –which was the EBay craze at the end of 2010. No, this time around it is a FTOPS Gold Jersey that is up for auction on EBay.

BLUFF Magazine has surmised that the jersey likely belongs to “thekellster89″ who was a winner during the FTOPS XIII tournament series. “thekellster89” apparently tried to part with the jersey through the 2+2 poker forums last July for the bargain price of $150; now he is asking quite a bit more on EBay, as his auction has a buy-it now price of $500 –perhaps the economy is improving!

The Gold Football Jersey emblazoned with the Full Tilt Poker logo and adorned with the number 89 sold earlier today for $250; so if the seller was “thekellster89” he picked up an extra $100 by going to EBay –minus any auction fees—even though he settled for half of his asking price. No word yet if he will donate the proceeds to UNICEF, a la Peter Eastgate, but I wouldn’t hold my breath on that one.

We’ll have to wait and see what the next piece of poker memorabilia is that hits the online auction house will be.
