It’s always fun to look through the remainder bin at the Redskins’ online store to see the jerseys of some old friends.
A $209.95 Jason Campbell authentic jersey on sale for $79.95?
A $110 Clinton Portis premier jersey on sale for $49.95?
An $80 Devin Thomas replica jersey on sale for $19.95?
An $89 Colt Brennan replica jersey on sale for $19.95?
The same deals for the replica jerseys of Fred Smoot, Ladell Betts, Jason Taylor and Antwaan Randle El?
All these things are well within the range of normal sale offerings.
The weird part, though, is the glut of Haynesworth jerseys on sale next to these ghosts of Redskins past. As I type this, the store is offering at least half off deals on Haynesworth’s replica away jersey, replica home jersey, ladies home replica jersey, ladies away replica jersey, and youth home replica jersey. That means 5 of the 37 super sale jerseys currently feature the jersey of a guy who’s still on the team.
The last time I noticed such weirdness — concerning Donovan McNabb jerseys in December — the team sent me this statement:
“Upon discovering that a third-party vendor made a decision to reduce the price of the jerseys, we had it corrected immediately, and we apologize for the error. Both replica and authentic McNabb jerseys are now full price.”
Stay tuned. Just in case, you might want to place your order right now.
