When Ohio State offensive lineman Marcus Hall was ejected for his part in an altercation during the Buckeyes’ 42-41 victory over Michigan on Nov. 30, he offered a double-digit parting shot to fans as he exited the Big House.
It was a memorable way to leave Michigan Stadium and now that his eligibility has expired, he’s using his moment to make a little coin. A photo of the salute was discovered by Ben Axelrod, who covers Ohio State for Buckeye Sports Bulletin and Scout.com, in a Columbus, Ohio, area shop. (The image can be seen here.)
Hall, a fifth-year senior, signed the photo and wrote “4 x GOLD PANTS” in reference to the charms Ohio State players receive for every victory over the Wolverines. a message referring to the gold charms all Ohio State players receive each time the Buckeyes beat the Wolverines in football. Several autographed copies for sale on eBay for $19.99 were snapped up, but Sports Possessions, an Ohio sports sports memorabilia company, will hold an event Saturday, according to its Facebook page, at which Hall will sign photos.
For a price.
