Anybody wanna buy a football?

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the latest example of the law of supply and demand, Nebraska-style.

An astute reader and poster at noticed something interesting on a website that sells Husker football paraphenilia:

1) You can buy a football that was autographed by former head coach (fired in November) Bill Callahan for $19.99. The link is here.

2) the same can buy the exact same football...WITHOUT an autograph...for $29.99. That link is here.

A football with a former coach's autograph is $10 less than a blank football. As the poster on HuskerPedia remarked, that's just "evidence that graffiti reduces property value."

Anybody have some whiteout? I suddenly have a money-making idea...

That is awesome beyond words. Wonder if the folks who run the site are aware of it?
