I don’t consider myself to be a materialistic person. Nor do I have a particular interest in politics — especially in a country I don’t call home.
But the tie former Toronto Mayor Rob Ford wore when he made his crack cocaine admission is up for sale and I simply don’t know how I’ll be able to go on with life if I can’t own it.
For those of you who don’t recall, it’s a gorgeous necktie featuring outdated NFL logos against a black backdrop.
The city councillor and former Toronto mayor announced on Twitter earlier this month that he would be selling off some collectibles and giving 10 per cent of the proceeds to charity.
On Wednesday, he tweeted that “new items” were up for sale on eBay.
Some old pyjama pants were one of the items posted to the online auction site, while another item was a football-themed tie that is likely familiar to anyone who followed the mayor and his crack scandal.
“This is the original piece, not a reproduction — there is only one of these in existence,” the description reads on eBay, with the word original in boldface.
Mark Towhey, who previously served as Ford’s chief of staff, tweeted Wednesday that “THE football tie” had been put up for sale on eBay.

Maybe go for this other cool stuff instead:
