I don't even know what to think about this. Someone tweeted at me with a link to an NFL auction, and said it was a dream gift for the 49ers fan in your life. I should have expected THIS to be the result.
Bidding closes a little after 7 p.m. PT, and right now, for only $20, you can get what appears to be a laser autographed football featuring members of the 49ers 2012 NFL Draft class. The ball appears to include autographs from A.J. Jenkins, Michael Thomas, Darius Fleming and others. I'm pretty sure they are laser engraved, although it really would make this all the more awesome if they were real autographs for that cheap a price.
We're quickly running out of time where we can poke fun at the 49ers 2012 draft class. I'm sure plenty of folks would be plenty happy moving on from the class, never to speak of it again. For now though, we wait to see if Joe Looney and LaMichael James can make some kind of sizable contribution to the 49ers in 2014 and beyond. James is leading the way as punt and kick returner. Looney is getting first team snaps at right guard while Alex Boone is holding out. By the end of August, we'll have a much better idea if we're going to get anything of note from the 2012 class.
In the meantime, you can always buy this for your favorite (or least favorite) 49ers fan!
