Billy Bennett knew of eBay back when Gurley was in 3rd grade

I faintly remember the story, but this tweet caught my eye the other day:

Here's a blown up version of the pic which gives you part of the article. If nothing else, it goes to show this auctioning of "amateur" athletes' likenesses (whether signed jerseys or authenticated locks of hair) has been a steadily evolving situation that Athens has been central to.

By the way, couldn't find a modern digitalized version of the story. If you happen to have a link, share it in the comments.
