A.I.’s Contract-Signing Pen Auctioned Off

It’s for a good cause, sure, but it doesn’t stop it from being a completely ludicrous idea (via Marc Spears): ”This excusive item, only available through Sixers Charities, was used by Allen Iverson on December 3, 2009 to sign his contract prior to his press conference where he was “re-introduced” as a Sixer. The pen itself is a Cross ball point pen and the inside of the pen box is signed by Iverson … Don’t miss out on history… auction ends December 10, 2009. Winner is responsible for all shipping charges. All proceeds from this auction benefit Sixers Charities, a part of the Comcast-Spectacor Foundation.”

    I’m bidding on the pen that Artest used at the Liquor store to sign for his Hennessy order.

    With all the hype, this isn’t a bad idea. I’m sure some zealous fan or investor will bid a pretty penny for it, right it off on their taxes and at the same time help a charity. Maybe Bron, Wade, Bosh etc will follow suit next year when they sign their contracts.

    LMAO @ Ghost!

    I think I’d lose the pen with my other pens.

  • O

    They should give that pen to Nicky Santoro so he can put it to good use ala “Casino.”

  • giogolo

  • foolio_iglesias

    The pen just issued a statement to the AP indicating that it would not be used to write about practice nor shootarounds….
