Crack Me Up

The wonderful football-themed tie Rob Ford wore when he confessed to smoking crack cocaine sold Tuesday for $1,445 on eBay.

The vintage tie, first listed by the former Toronto mayor in February — features logos from NFL teams past and present.  According to information on eBay, the unidentified winner was the highest of 30 bids.  Ford could not be reached for comment.

He wore the tie in November 2013 when he finally admitted to having used crack while in office.  On April 14, Ford relisted the item “due to fraudulent activity of the original winning bidder.”  “You are bidding on an original piece of memorabilia from former Toronto mayor and current Toronto councilor Rob Ford,” the eBay description states. “This is the original piece, not a reproduction — there is only one of these in existence.”  Ford offered a “signed, original certificate of authenticity” with the purchase.


Enough Said.
