Can One Sell a Red Sox Jersey Signed by Kenneth Branagh?

I am not a dishonest person, in general. I am a curious person. When I want to know how much interest a Kenneth Branagh signed Red Sox jersey would garner on Craigslist, I’m not dissuaded by simple facts like: I don’t have one, and: It doesn’t exist. I am far more curious than dishonest, especially if I might find a person who is both an avid Red Sox fan and admirer of Kenneth Branagh.  So I did a bad thing. I lied and said I possess something I don’t. I did it just to know.

(please embiggen):


And now I know the answer to the title question. It is: No, because it is priceless, judging by the zero responses offering payment that I’ve received as of this posting. Also: No, because it does not exist.

No one can put a price on this theoretical collector’s item! Nor can anyone properly appraise a theoretical Yankees jersey signed by Kenneth Branagh. Possibly because the “region-specific sports apparel/iconic thespian” combination is not a real thing, or possibly because such an item is too precious for the petty offerings of mortals.

Notgraphs readers: I encourage you to test the market of your region with a similar Craigslist post (containing a similar number of uses of the adverb “highly”) and report back any findings on what the going dollar value of a Kenneth Branagh signed baseball jersey might be. In the words of KB himself:


“No low ballers.”

    One of a kind memorabilia of baseball: Pee Wee Reese’s 1956 Topps card signed by Bertrand Russell.

    To eBay or not eBay, that is the question.
    Whether ’tis Nobler in the mind to suffer
    The action and bidding of outrageous Fortune,
    Or to take “Buy It Now” against a Sea of troubles,
    And by opposing end them: to sell, to keep
    No more; and by keep, to say we sell.
