Who would’ve guessed that Jerry Sandusky would become something of an eBay auction hero over the weekend? Several of his Touched books – autographed by the alleged child molester – were auctioned off for more than $100 after starting last week worth about $8. But the grand daddy of all Sandusky memorabilia is the leather edition of Touched. We’re not sure how many were published but from the price paid on Saturday, it seems $510 is the new value.
The seller writes:
This is a limited edition Autographed Leather bound version of the Jerry Sandusky Book “Touched”. Book is mint and never read. Is numbered 221/250 and is autographed by Jerry Sandusky and six former Penn State All Americans. To include: Matt Millen, Greg Buttle, Lance Mehl, Jack Ham, Ed O’Neil and Kyle Brady.
Of course we understand that the autographs add some value, but Kyle Brady via a Bic pen isn’t why people desire this piece of history.
Kudos to those who are making a buck on this tragedy. May you get hit by a train.
