Fan Buys Mark Sanchez’s Butt Fumble Jersey
I figured it would have been sold for more.
A diehard New York Jets fan paid $820 for the jersey Mark Sanchez wore during the “Butt Fumble” game in 2012, hoping to keep it from those who might subject him to further ridicule over the infamous play.
“The second I realized what it was I knew I had to have it. Almost for macabre reasons; the amount of ridicule I have received from friends regarding that play and me being a diehard Jets fan out in California especially,” Hendrickson toldYahoo! Sports. “There’s no way I could let it get in the hands of an anti-fan or something of that manner to be shoved in our face.”
