When all-time great quarterback Tom Brady announced his retirement from the NFL, many fans were shocked.
He released a video on social media where he made the announcement on a beach.
Well, there were a few people that watched that video and came up with an interesting idea.
That was to find the exact spot where Brady was sitting, and sell the sand from there.
Surprisingly, people got a jar of sand from that spot and are selling it for a lot of money on eBay.
Someone is selling a bottle of sand from the exact location where Tom Brady announced his retirement.
The current bid is $100,000 (with eight days to go), and there are also 2-3 other listings with $10,000+ bids.

It is hard to believe people would be interested in sand from this beach.
There is no certainty it is even the exact spot, also it holds almost no value.
Also, paying any amount of money for sand everyone has access to is insane.
Wouldn't it be cheaper to just go there and get some

Some people are even upset that they did not think of this first.
You never know what people would be willing to buy on eBay.
I’m just mad I didn’t think of that sooner

It would make sense that this whole thing is one big publicity stunt.
eBay usually allows people to bid on items, without having to pay for them at the end.
So the chances anyone gets six figures for a jar of sand is slim.
One thing fans have to account for is that Brady may not be retired for long.
So it would be a real shame if someone bought this sand just to see Brady return to the field.

Even though Brady seems to be finished for good, you never know what he might think once he is away from the game for a while.
Either way, it is hard to believe that people would spend for a piece of the legendary quarterback.NEXT: 2 Moves The Giants Should Make This Offseason
