How To Blow $175 On A $20 T-Shirt

If you happen to have $175 burning a hole in your pocket, there are a lot of ways to spend it. You could buy almost 3 brand new current-gen games, perhaps a full Rock Band bundle, or maybe a DS and a game. Oh, then there’s always this strange Mario T-Shirt.

Yes, this simple Mario T-Shirt will cost you a whopping $175 bucks. I’m pretty sure that the reason for the extra expense has to do with the ape resting on his head. I guess I’m not familiar with the line of clothing referred to as A Bathing Ape, but apparently they sell shirts with an ape called MILO for exorbitant amounts of money. Add in a famous video game character, and you’ve got yourself a limited edition shirt that will sell for even more cash. Think no one will shell out that much dough for a Mario shirt with an ape? Think again, all three variants of the shirt are sold out.
