£255 for a t-shirt?? Answered

Picture of


Heads up on a really important ebay auction, ending in a few hours.

The BBC are raising funds for their new wildlife charity with an auction of favours, trips out with the stars and unique items (such as the sofa from Springwatch).

Go.

Look.

Spend.

The shirt is gonna eventually get ripped or torn, and the colors fade from the wash, so unless you just don't wear it and put in on some sort of display...

...why???

I'm guessing charity auctions are more of a British than American thing?

There's also something called donating...

...Wall-mart would probably sell that shirt for 5 bucks.

But it wouldn't be a shirt personally designed, created and worn on TV by a celeb (Chris Packham is a popular nature presenter and photographer, as well as a jolly nice chap).

Oh, now I get it...

...but do you really need to spend so much money on a shirt...? You could probably get one personally designed for a lot cheaper, and make it look just like the celebrity's...

Anyways, its those peoples' choice, so...

Good markup for the rest of us, though.

And I thought a $30 Machinae Supremacy shirt was expensive...
