How much would you pay for Joe Pa’s glasses?

Brace yourself for a new Joe Paterno next fall. The 83 year-old is losing his trademark goggles and going with a sleeker look thanks to surgery to correct his vision.

No longer in need of the spectacles, Paterno put them on the auction block with proceeds benefiting Penn State Public Broadcasting. A Baltimore couple paid a whopping $9,000 to acquire them, with an original maximum bid of $10,500 dollars.

It must be nice to have some extra cash laying around to spend on tacky memorabilia. Personally, I would never blow that much cash on something that has been on a strange man’s face for decades.

  1. If I had the cash, I’d probably pay him to retire instead of for his glasses. I don’t want to see him stroke out on the field.
