Guess How Much The Cubs Are Selling Dead Ivy From Last Season


The Cubs have been trying to squeeze every dime out of their first World Series in 108 years. Up next? Some dead plants.

ESPN – The team emailed premier clients and season-ticket holders on Tuesday with an offer to puchase the ivy leaves that covered Wrigley Field’s outfield walls during the 2016 season. Although the foilage is typically discarded when the ivy turns red and sheds its leaves in November, the team, after the historic 2016 season, instead chose to collect the leaves for the first time and have each authenticated with a hologram.

The price for this dead leaf in a box? $200. Plus $15 dollars shipping. If you want to pick up a dozen of these you are out of luck because the most you can purchase is 10.

Honestly, these are pretty cool. I wouldn’t mind having one of these on my desk. I would be comfortable paying 40 dollars for this max. 200 is a little crazy.

This isn’t the first time a Chicago team has sold some interesting memorabilia from a championship season. Remember when the Blackhawks won the Cup in 2013? They sold vials of melted ice (supposedly) from the playing surface. That bit of water would have cost you a cool 100 bucks. Seems like a steal when the Cubs are selling dead plants for twice that.
