Aaron Hernandez football jerseys are being sold on eBay for as much as twice their original cost as the New England Patriots offer exchanges to people who purchased the #81 jerseys of the former tight end arrested last week on murder charges.
The New England Patriots cut Hernandez and announced that the Patriots ProShop at Gillette Stadium will offer fans a chance to exchange #81 jerseys purchased at the store. On July 6 and 7, customers can bring in the jerseys without original receipts to exchange them for other jerseys.
NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said he can’t recall a similar move by a team to allow exchanges for a player’s jersey. The jerseys were removed from NFLshop.com shortly after the football player’s arrest.
The New England Patriots, owned by the Kraft Group, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
