Someone at The Hawthorns on Sunday supposedly recovered Sir Alex Ferguson’s last ever piece of gum chewed as Manchester United manager. Of course, it quickly found its way onto ebay, where the bidding is already at an astonishing £150,000 (at the time of this post).
We’re a little disturbed by how many people are fighting over this piece of dry, yet saliva-infused, memorabilia, nor can we even be sure of its authenticity. But apparently all proceeds go to charity, so that’s nice.
The listing reads as follows:
Used chewing gum: RARE. Recovered from The Hawthorns. Clear perspex/wooden case.
Unofficial merchandise, rumoured to belong to Sir Alex.
After 1,500 games of intense chewing as manager of Man Utd, here lies Fegie’s last piece of chewing gum.
All proceeds go to the MU Foundation charity.
