Gross! Apparently disrespecting the flag during the middle of a game and being a liberal darling just doesn’t pay the bills as well as playing in the NFL.
This is a lesson that Colin Kaepernick is learning the hard way as he sells some game-worn memorabilia from the 2014 season that could possibly be infected with goodness knows what.
Although he didn’t specify which game the gloves were used in, Kaepernick has this example of sports memorabilia up for auction at Goldin Auctions. The sale began about a week ago, but the auction is not slated to end until early November.
Sure, those who like sports memorabilia MAY get into this auction, but one truly has to wonder what the attraction is, especially considering that this item comes from someone who has zero respect for what this country stands for or for the opportunities that had been afforded to him.
And the reason why no one would sign him after 2017? Well, for one thing he wasn’t that good. For another thing, he would have been too much of a distraction in a locker room. It wasn’t because the owners are racist and “colluded” to keep him out. Oh, brother. But I digress.
Of course, one of the main selling points of this glove would have to be that it was used during one of Kaepernick’s best seasons – indeed, 2014 was a year where he accumulated 3,369 passing yards and 19 touchdown passes.
Kap was ultimately relegated to a backup role after the 49ers posted some terrible records in 2015 and 2016. He is nothing more than a second-rate player, so one of his gross gloves really shouldn’t be all that appealing to anyone.
However, the surprising thing is that this isn’t the first time that Colin Kaepernick merchandise has been on the auction block. Kaepernick actually had a one-of-a-kind red refractor card with his autograph that sold for over $20,000.
