How Much is Eli Worth to You?

Fresh off the schadenfreude of the Giants’ loss yesterday comes this auction offering 136 autographed Eli Manning rookie cards for the low low price of $8 million. Seems reasonable to me!

Don’t worry, you’ll be getting your money’s worth, you see the cards “have not been exposed to light, excessive handling, or a smoking environment. All are currently in safe deposit boxes.” You can check out the gallery of each card here.

But wait, there’s MORE! “Should I get an irresistable offer on the collection, I will also give the buyer the following items for sale. 2004 NFL Draft Class Autographed Football Eli Manning, 2004 NFL Draft Class RC Autos Eli Manning Philip Rivers“.

Fortunately, the seller is not married to the $8 million price tag, saying “I will entertain offers on the collection, but also want Giants fans to see it.”

Because truly, all Giants fans want to marvel at the amazing collection of a bunch of crappy football cards. Because there is such a great tradition with football cards…

Hot Cross Dunks

Here’s Jonny Flynn from Syracuse University taking the Rutgers team to task with a sick crossover and then an awesome finishing dunk. Sure, it was a charge, but it went uncalled and was still pretty.

Beckham Make Bang-Time Happy Explosion

beckham_condomsDavid Beckham is widely considered an attractive helium-voiced man and a Chinese condom manufacturer is taking advantage of that attraction by slapping his face onto their condom boxes. The condom company is saying that using their condoms will help users score in the bedroom like Beckham does on the field. I guess that means that you’ll prance around and then leave the game early with an ankle injury…

Some Chinese fans of Beckham though are less than pleased with these condoms, “We do not want Beckham to think the Chinese people are disrespecting him. We love him here,” the Sun quoted one as saying.

Beckham’s representatives had only this to say, “It’s not an official brand.”

I look forward to the day when the Slanch unofficial condoms go on the market. Of course, I’m more looking forward to the photo shoot where they drench my chest in oil, but that’s a whole other story…
