Kyle Rudolph Duped Into Giving Playoff Gloves To Charity, Only To Find Them Being Sold On eBay Days Later (TWEET)
Some people truly can’t be trusted.
Kyle Rudolph had 4 catches for 31 yards against the New Orleans Saints during their Wild Card matchup, but none were bigger than his OT game-winning touchdown that sent them into the next round.
After the game, Rudolph says he was approached by a member of the media that asked him to donate his gloves for a charity benefit. He not only gave him the clothes, but also signed them in hopes the charitable benefit could make even more money.
A couple of days later, news broke to Rudolph that his game-winning gloves had been sold on eBay—for $375.50.
Rudolph expressed his dissatisfaction on Twitter, and explained that he had never seen the “media” member before, and said, “well, he got me.”
“I saw this.. it’s disappointing. A member of the media in the locker room after the game asked if he could have my gloves for a charity benefit, so I said of course and I will even sign them for you! Well he got me, sold on eBay 3 days later,” Rudolph wrote.
As luck would have it, the guy who purchased them stated he would happily donate them to charity.
“I’m the guy who bought them. I will gladly donate to a charity of your choice,” user @kingy1940 tweeted.
Rudolph took him up on the offer and even said he will give his gloves from the upcoming game against the 49ers.
