eBay Sellers Profiting From JRW Championship T-Shirts

(CBS) — If you’re interested in a Jackie Robinson West T-shirt – be prepared to pay for it. And don’t expect your money to benefit the Little League program.

Dick’s Sporting Goods has been selling the official T-shirt – with proceeds benefiting Little League. The price: 20 dollars.

But they’re all sold out and Dick’s apparently has no plan to make more.

Enter eBay sellers.

If you look on eBay, you’ll see one of those yellow and black Jackie Robinson National Champions T-shirts for $102.50.

That’s what the bidding’s up to, more than five times the original price.

And there’s no word that any of that is going back to Little League.
