The Unfair Park Auction: One and Only One of This Year's Very Rare Ron Washington T-Shirts

OLDSKOOL.jpg
Speaking of fashion statements printed on tees ...

Last year, round this time, Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington's face graced many an unlicensed T-shirt, most of which also featured his then-inescapable catchphrase. But for whatever reason -- the threat of cease-and-desists from the ball club and Major League Baseball, the ol' been-there-done-that -- the fashion trend played itself out (for the most part), even with the Rangers one game away from the team's first title.

Except: This week, I was handed the tee you see here, designed, so I am told, by the same guy who made this "classic cool" shirt during last year's post-season run. There are none available; the run was extremely limited for obvious reasons, and made available solely to friends of its maker. But I have one. Just one. It's XL. And I'm going to do with it what we did with some of last year's offerings: auction it off to the highest bidder, with the proceeds going, as always, to the North Texas Food Bank.

Bidding opens at $20, which is what the shirts were initially going for, so I am told. Leave your bid, and only your bid, in the comments below. The auction closes at 4 p.m.; the winner will need to bring a check payable to the NTFB by 5 today to Unfair Park HQ. Because after all, you'll need the shirt tonight, which can't get here soon enough. And ... go.

Update at 4 p.m.: Ol' Friend of Unfair Park Wylie H. is the winner at a whopping, impressive and quite moving $250. Thanks to all for playing. And if you still wanna have drinks, send $25 to the NTFB, and it's a done deal.

$250? Good on ya, Wylie. I got one of the WASH shirts last year, but every time I wear it on game day, they lose.

I'm in @ $250, but I do think Wilonsky should agree to have a cup of coffee with me, at the very least.

So you're basically a fence right?

Not going to bid but I will send in a check to the NTFB for support of your good deed.

Come on RW, throw in a lunch with that to talk all things Dallas. I'm sure adding yourself to the shirt puts what, another $5 to the winning bid?

If yer serious about that bid -- and you got 26 minutes -- then I'll buy drinks.

Just kidding.  I don't have that kind of cash to spend on a t shirt.

Sickly, expected back on Friday..(of course "sickly" is code for recovering from a beating when he couldn't pay up after the Cowboys covered last week.)

Anything involving spending any time with me would likely knock down the going price by a considerable sum.

Don't sell yourself short, Bob.  Hell, I'd bring the bourbon.
