What sells on eBay? Well, Da Bears are hot! Vintage Chicago Bears jackets sell on eBay...for a ton!
So I had this shiny nylon Chicago Bears Starter pullover / jacket thing in my eBay closet. (Can you tell that I'm not into sports?) It was in perfect condition, but I just hadn't gotten around to listing it. Since it was made in Korea and looked like something someone at my high school might have worn, I figured it was probably vintage.
Well...this morning I got motivated. I got up early, made coffee, turned on the Christmas music, and started looking through the many, many items that we still needed to list.
I decided to research this awesome piece. I had a hard time finding this exact pullover, but I found a number of satin jackets that looked very similar. I discovered that vintage Chicago Bears Starter jackets go for quite a bit of money! Recently, a satin Starter jacket in an XXL went for $110!!! Here's the link: Satin Jacket
Several of the ones that had sold for the most had the word Ditka in the titles. I happen to know that Ditka is the last name of Mike Ditka, a famous player. (I've seen him in quite a few commercials. LOL)
So I listed the pullover as a three-day fixed price item with free shipping for $59.99 or best offer. (If someone wants to buy it as a Christmas gift, they are not going to want to wait for an auction to end.) Not sure if this product will go for as much as the satin jackets, but I'm glad I got my act in gear and got it listed!
