The Eagles parade made for an unforgettable, tearful, adrenaline-filled day for many Philadelphians. And, for some, it's also payday.
Rasheem Crews, a Southwest Philly resident, was hawking mini-Lombardi trophies Thursday morning outside of City Hall. By noon, Crews said he had sold 100 at $60 a pop. A police officer even bought one.
"As a Philadelphian, we have a hustlin' spirit," he said. "Ask any Philadelphian. We go for it."
Crews said his friend, who owns a trophy company, purchased the mold before the Eagles won. "He has that much faith!"
At the same location, another creative entrepreneur was selling photographs in front of a massive "Super Bowl Champions" poster. The cost: a cool $30.
Also for sale: buttons and hand warmers. Thank God. It was freezing out there!
And how adorable are these Eagle hats that are available for purchase?
Naturally, there were bootleg T-shirts for sale. Lots and lots of bootleg T-shirts.
And you knew this was coming: Online, people have been peddling SEPTA's "Independence Passes," which provide access to Regional Rail today. They were originally going for $10 from SEPTA.
