Lions fan pays $3,000 for Barry Sanders autographed urinal

Friday June 12th, 2015

How much money would you pay for a used urinal autographed by Barry Sanders? If you said less than $3,000 your bid is too low, and if you said more than that you are very weird.

A Lions fan purchased the Silverdome's home locker room bathroom fixture after the team's legendary running back jokingly tweeted that he would sign memorabilia from the defunct stadium, with the exception of urinals.

Fox Sports reports that Mike Kozan bought the bathroom staple for just $23 before cleaning it up and having it signed by the Hall of Fame running back, and then placing the unlikely piece of memorabilia on eBay.

The auction took off and after a furious finish that saw the price rise $400 in the final half hour it ended at $3,000.

While $3,000 is a large amount to spend on a signed urinal, Marcel Duchamp fans would consider it a steal.
