They get shipped off to third world countries. I thought that was kind of cool. So much better than destroying them.

Link to story from last year:

Cool article. Halfway through reading it, I realized it's a year old.

This reminds me of that seinfeld episode, when they gave muffins to a homeless shelter, but the muffins didn't have tops. "So you think just because their homeless they don't want the muffin tops!" Lol

I warned you that the link was to an old story, Beowulf...

Actually, I did look for one more recent regarding the disposition, but couldn't find one (didn't search for too long). I guess the news folks had already covered it last year, and had no interest in reviving the story and recycling it regarding the 19-0 tee's and hats.

Heh, no prob.

I can imagine the black market value being pretty high if an insider smuggled a few caps and t-shirts and sold it on EBay "anonymously". It'd be like those misprint baseball cards that sell for a fortune.
