Boston-Area Sports Memorabilia Store Says it Sold Aaron Hernandez Letter to TMZ for $18K


Earlier this week an Aaron Hernandez letter from prison surfaced thanks to the folks over at TMZ. The Boston Herald reports the gossip company paid a sports memorabilia store in Saugus, Mass., $18,000 for the letter.

Sportsworld Inc. obtained the letter and compared Hernandez’s signature to verify its authenticity, according to manager Brendan Brennan. This would explain how the letter wound up on the Internet, despite Hernandez’s plea to “keep it off social media PLEASE!”

“It wasn’t written to us, so we didn’t have to honor anything from that letter,” Brennan said.

Okay, then. Figure this is the last time we see Hernandez interact with the public while he awaits trial.
