Who wants a game-worn Haynesworth jersey?

By Dan Steinberg


Earlier in the week, I noted that the Redskins' official online store was still selling Christmas ornaments featuring a tall black No. 17. But at least the ornaments only cost $14, and Campbell was never hated by Redskins fans.

So, what would be an even tackier thing to offer? How about a game-worn Albert Haynesworth jersey for a cool $1,000.

Reader Bruce, who sent along the link, notes a few things about this jersey:

* It's fairly rare, since Haynesworth only played in 11 home games nine road games as a member of the Redskins.

* You can see some apparent dirt stains, which means Haynesworth may have been rolling around on the ground while wearing this fabric.

* It's an Albert Haynesworth jersey being sold for $1,000.

If that's too rich for your blood, incidentally, the Skins are also offering an autographed Haynesworth football for a much more reasonable $499.

UPDATE: If you look at the Redskin online shop's Game-Worn section, you'll note that all the offerings -- including Devin Thomas and Malcolm Kelly jerseys -- cost $1,000. So maybe this is unfair to complain about. Also, the Web site specifies that Haynesworth wore this jersey against Dallas in 2009, a game in which he made three tackles as the Redskins were blanked, 17-0.

I don't blame the Redskins for trying to earn back some of that money they wasted on Haynesworthless, but $1,000? Get real!

That's like what.. $50 for every second the jersey was worn on the playing field and $300 for the time the jersey got a ride on a gator back to the locker room ?

This would have to be the "ironic" pricing scheme. There's real value in being "the worst free agent signing in sports history."

I'm also guessing they don't have enough jerseys to cover $30M.

Sweet. My tent has a rip in it. The Haynesworth jersey should work out well as a replacement.

I'm surprised the Hall of Fame hasn't claimed it.

Maybe they could use it at the Metrodome.

It's almost worth paying $1000 just so I can piss on it.
