No. These are strictly limited edition, so if you want one, you'll have to bid.

 

 

Do you not check your e-mythers at home...?

Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

Auctioning off 20 limited edition shirts is better than selling a load at 40 quid a pop. Unless you don't get one, then at least you'll have something else to whinge about.

Nice touch Mr Hall calling fans who want to put money in the club coffers "whingers", so as a supporter I may get out bid on buying one of these shirts, but if they were made and sold in the club shop I could then buy one and put even more money in the club coffers, as I say madness.

The club would have to order about 200 shirts for them to be able to get them at a cheap enough price to sell them at a profit, and we'd have to sell them all to do that (which we wouldnt). These are a one off, paid for by sponsorship and any money raised by the auction is an extra. It's a nice touch by the club to honour the York RL greats, the rarer the shirt, the more value to whoever manages to get one.

Never called anyone a whinger. Just said you'd have something to whinge about, knowing full well you were being catered for, Mr Hides-behind-a-pseudonym.

We don't have 200 players in the Hall of Fame yet!

 

These one-off limited edition shirts aren't to be worn again after this game, they are to be auctioned off as an exclusively rare piece of RL memorabilia hopefully for a lot of money that will go to the YCK Foundation. It will be something to be cherished and framed and hung above your fireplace, proud in the knowledge that you own one of only 17 of these shirts in existence, should you be lucky enough to win one the auctions.

 

If we killed the exclusivity, made 200 of them and struggled to sell them how would that help anyone?

 

Its not quite simple as...
