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.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
