Someone’s going to pay thousands of dollars for Rob Ford’s crack-confession tie

Rob Ford started putting all sorts of crap (sorry, “memorabilia”) from his office on eBay last week, but it doesn’t get any better than the latest thing up for bid: the very tie he wore when he finally admitted to smoking crack. Ford’s description of the tie on eBay doesn’t specifically mention the item’s historical significance, but it’s unmistakable. The tie is covered in football logos that date it to the mid-nineties, so for it not to be the actual crack tie would mean Ford somehow owns more than one identical 20-year-old piece of novelty neckwear. Granted, he’s a frugal man, so it’s possible. (The description does note, though, that “there is only one of these in existence.”) The bidding is up to $2,125.
