Someone Scored 213 Pairs of Warren Sapp's Nikes in a Bankruptcy Auction

Think your eBay horror story is bad? It probably can't compare to Warren Sapp's, in which he recently lost over $10,000 on sneakers, thanks to an apparently unrealistic reserve price and possibly flaky buyer.

Sapp was set to make $16,800 from 215 size-15 Nike shoes in a 2012 eBay auction, related to his bankruptcy settlement. But according to bankruptcy trustee Kenneth Welt, the high bidder and the auction house handling the eBay auction failed to consummate the sale after the reserve went unmet.

This week, TMZ reports 213 of those kicks were purchased in a bankruptcy auction for $6,390 -- $30/pair -- by a man in Connecticut.

The lesson for prospective eBayers? Never set a reserve price, especially when you're a former 7-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle settling a highly publicized bankruptcy case.
