Man, where to even begin with this thing?
Someone is obviously striking while the iron is hot. The Kentucky Wildcats won the national title, so it’s obviously a good time to pawn your Wildcats wares on eBay. That’s just what this person is doing, selling a one-of-a-kind Wildcats quilt. Staring bid: $150,000. Buy it now: $275,000.
We’re pretty sure there are probably a bunch of people out there looking to throw down six figures on a blanket. Unfortunately, not one of them has bid as of Tuesday afternoon.
It actually has authentic signatures from 11 Wildcats, in addition to a listing of all Wildcat players, coaches and titles (excluding last night’s). Of course, Tony Delk is probably the best player to have signed the thing. We have no idea who the rest of the guys are, with the exception of coach John Calipari.
Here’s the description, in part.
The Only (1) in the whole world and can never be reproduced. Began hand embroided in 1994 all the the Kentucky Letterman players names with dates of playing starting from 1903-2012 are on the quilt. The wildcat quilt also had all head coaches and the dates they coached. All NCAA (7) Championships are listed from 1948, 1949, 1951, 1958, 1978, 1996, 1998 ………. Plenty of room to add 2012 Championship on the quilt. Many blood sweat and dears have been put into the greatest creation by a Kentucky Wildcat fan. The reason was wanting to sell the quilt is that I am geting older and have carpal tunnel and eyes not as good as they used to be. Hope someone will love the quilt as much as I do and placing the names of future players to continue the legacy. There are plenty of room to add on for many years. Some of the logos represent Tony Delk, Travis Ford, Mark Pope and our wildcat mascot.
Big Travis Ford fan, this broad. And with good reason. That dude was a beast!
Anyway, this person obviously wants this quilt to go to a good home, the home of a Wildcats fan. That’s why it’s priced at the super-low price of $150,000. Ready to move!
The only problem is, no one in the backwards-ass state of Kentucky has that much money.
Where’s Ashley Judd? She needs to get in on the bidding.
