    Think ejim or kane I'm would take 2,500 for a game worn jersey?

    Once they graduate it's fair game, right?

    Considering I paid ~400 for a cyclone jersey on an NFL roster I thought i was a bit high. Would love to chat with one of them. PM me.

    I thought you were talking about their Sweet 16 jersey not just any game. You could do it for $2500 if they have multiples but I don't think they would sell the Sweet 16 one

    Hopefully you can get it with their sweat still on it. They are worth more that way I'm told, hence why Royce White's jerseys never sold for that much since he didn't sweat.

    There were a lot of great things said about Royce on these boards. That was one of my favorites. Trip down memory lane:

    Eh, no. They can never take money for their ncaa stuff. It would be a violation for ISU. Players cannot get money for their college time even after they have exhausted their eligibility.

    Didn't OJ sell a bunch of his memorabilia and then steal it back?

    There is such a double standard for this stuff. I was at Meet the Coaches last fall and there were multiple game worn items for sale in the auction.
    I definitely remember Chris Babb's game worn, signed shoe being there.

    Not true. Once a player has exhausted eligibility they can sell whatever they want.

    For sale by ISU, no problem. For sale by the players, problem.

    I really don't know if an athlete could sell their unis after they graduate or if that would be seen as an impermissable benefit. I'll poke around online later today and research. I do know that Kansas was punished when boosters sent graduation gifts to players after they graduated from KU. Roy Williams thought it was OK because they had exhausted their eligibility but it was not. I don't see this as any different. A booster could agree to pay a guy $50,000 for a pair shoes once he graduates. The equipment wasn't purchased by the athlete so it's technically not "his". Sounds like a violation in the NCAA world to me.

    Like I said above, once a athlete has exhausted eligibility they can do whatever they please with the items they received from the school/NCAA. Article 12 of the NCAA bylaws talks about amatuerism and Article 12.5 specifically addresses Promotional Activities. There is nothing that talks about rule after a athlete exhausts their eligibility because 1) it is impossible to police and 2) the athlete is no longer subject to NCAA rules.

    If I want to sell my football jerseys, bowl rings, game balls, bowl swag or helmet there is nothing the NCAA can do to me or ISU.

    The situation you mentioned above is given as an example in the bylaws of something that would be illegal because it could be viewed as a prearrangement since it is highly unlikely the FMV of a pair of shoes is $50,000.

    It's completely legal. I doubt the situation you described above is but that's not the type of deal we are talking about.
