Under the Hammer

Via Viz at USRRF:

All-Star Studded Team-Signed Barbarians Jersey on the Auction Block

The 22 signatures are from some of the greatest players in the game today. Richie McCaw, George Gregan, John Smit, Bryan Habana, and IRB Player of the Year, Shane Williams, are just some of the names that adorn this beautiful, mint-condition Barbarians jersey.

Donated to the US Rugby Football Foundation by Micky Steele-Bodger, President of the Barbarian Football Club, this very unique piece of rugby memorabilia is a must have for the passionate rugby fan.

"We are very honored to have such a piece of rugby treasure donated to the Foundation," said USRFF Executive Director Brian Vizard. "This could possibly be the most star-studded team ever assembled. Combined there are over 1,000 caps between the 22 players on this Barbarians side. The Foundation thanks Micky and the Barbarians in helping us raise funds for our youth programs."

Photos, a more detailed description of the jersey and more information about this Barbarians side and their match against Australia can be found on eBay, item #180320973308. The bidding will conclude at 10:00 a.m. (PST) on Sunday, January 25, 2009.
