Serial Killers Ink, the same macabre murder memorabilia outfit that was selling samples of soil from Anthony Sowell's house, has a new Cleveland-related item up for bid: a shirt once worn by disgraced former county commissioner Jimmy Dimora.
WKYC reports the site has set the reserve price at $1,499.99, which is totally a deal. Especially if you go in with some friends on the cost. It'll take all of you wearing it at one time to properly fill it out, anyway. Bidding is currently up to $140.
Part of the description below:
"This is a rare opportunity to own a piece of history. This shirt was owned and worn by the notorious Jimmy Dimora, of Cuyahoga County, Ohio. He has been referred to as the modern day "Boss Tweed" and is currently at the center of arguably the largest public corruption investigation in U.S. history."
"This shirt belonged to a man who may well go down in history as one of the most corrupt, notorious politicians in U.S. history. The Size 5XL shirt — Mr. Dimora is a sizable man — is printed with "Mayor Jimmy Dimora" on the front and and "Mayor Jimmy Dimora, Chairman Cuyahoga County Democratic Party" on the back."
Great for Christmas and birthdays this holiday season, but it's not even the most-prized county corruption memento we'd want. How about the zebra-print shirt? How about the tiki hut? How about Jimmy's collection of hotel room keys? Let us know when those trinkets pop up.
