Found August 08, 2013 on College Spun:
I don’t know if you’ve heard, but there’s a bit of a scandal going on right with NCAA athletes and autograph signings. Many star athletes have a bunch of signed memorabilia popping up on eBay these days, but their respective schools are saying no wrongdoing has occurred and players have not been accepting money in return for signings. One of these athletes is South Carolina’s Jadeveon Clowney. Plenty of items with his signature are circulating the web right now, but we have found the very best one. This helmet, complete with egregious spelling error, was sold on eBay for $171 just over one week ago: Yes, that’s “The Hit Herd Around The World” according to Clowney. We assuming he meant this hit was heard, and seen, around the world — it won him an ESPY award. Well, maybe spelling isn’t his thing. Somebody just got a serious $171 bargain.
