Neil Baron attended the 2015 Ohio State Equipment sale and provided GameWorn.us with feedback and photos from the sale. The line to the sale began forming on Friday in anticipation of the Saturday 8:00 AM opening. Doors opened 30 minutes early and by 7:35 AM all the jerseys were gone! Unfortunately, it did appear that all the hockey jerseys had the namebars on the back removed.
The $1500 football helmets were very popular items at the sale. Our insiders did not happen to see any displays with the hockey helmets or any shoppers with hockey helmets in hand.
UPDATE: At least 1 hockey jersey was reported to have the namebar left intact. The jersey with a namebar belonged to a senior (McLean) with no remaining eligibility. There have also been rumors that all the hockey helmets were pre-sold before the sale was open to the public.
