While there aren't many people out there rushing to get Michael Vick merchandise, there is one Michael Vick item that's getting some pretty hefty offers.
We've all seen or heard of sports trading cards and you can buy them pretty much anywhere, but some unique Vick trading cards on eBay have gotten more than a bite.
One Missouri woman decided to put her Michael Vick trading cards on eBay but not before letting her two dogs chew on them. By the time Vick pleaded guilty Monday the auction was at $6,400.
The sale was initially yanked by eBay because in the woman's original ad she said the money would be donated to the humane society of the bidder's choice, a violation of the site's rules on charity auction. Now in a re-post Rochelle Steffen says that she will do "very good things with the money."
Steffen also said the she's heard from a number of people that have said that her auction has inspired them to donate money to animal shelters. Bidding for the cards ends on Wednesday morning.
