How much is your 2012 Chicago Marathon finisher medal worth?
|2012 Chicago Marathon Finishers Medal|
Most of us would probably say it's priceless, since it is a reminder of the thrill of finishing the 26.2 miles and also a reminder of the months of sacrifices we had to make to get the finish line. However, if you need a quick $100, you could put it up on eBay. The going price on a 2012 finisher medal in one auction is $101 plus shipping! The person listing it says that they will use the proceeds from the auction to finance next year's entry fee.
However, if you are not willing to part with your medal, but are dreading getting your credit card charges from all of the clothing you bought at the marathon expo, you could put an item or two up on eBay, like this Nike women's jacket, which is currently selling for over $200!

Even that 75 cent Sun Times commemorative Chicago Marathon section that came out on Monday? Bidding topped out $6.51! That's a 860% profit made in just 3 days!
So, if you have Chicago Marathon Expo buyer's remorse, an extra newspaper from Monday, or you would rather forget your marathon finish and jettison your finisher medal and shirt, get your stuff listed on eBay right away while Chicago Marathon fever is still hot and you too could be rolling in the dough!
