    Sorry if this was posted - didn't see it:

    So for all of us (almost all of us) who didn't get the Willy Wonka ticket for a pair of RF287s.... now there's a t-shirt - and we (apparently) aren't getting one of these either:

    I'm happy for FedFan07 - but why couldn't they run 10k?

    The whole RF287 situation has annoyed me. How many have ended up on the Bay? Like 50 pairs so far? You can just imagine how many non fans were there clicking away during the 10 seconds that they took to sell out.

    I pity the fools that paid over $2000 when the frenzy first started because now they are going for about $1000.

    Anyway, as for the shirt, I'm not that bothered, the shoes are where it's at.

    I'd rather have the shirt (unless I knew I could get Fed to autograph the shoe. I could wear the shirt occasionally and get more enjoyment out of it.

    thats a sick shirt... congrats to federerfan07 for getting it!!
    i feel like I would like the shirt more, but the shoes feel more exclusive... even though there are less shirts made than the shoes haha!
    still bummed out I didnt get a pair... makes me mad how all these non-fans would get it just to rip people off like crazy... at least my friend who's a true fed fan scored a pair!

    Yeah, but that's one of the facets of Capitalism - Supply and Demand. And the power of the internet - word gets out fast - and to a huge audience.

    That's good for him. And you - you'll get to see a pair in person. Must of us won't.

    I remember reading somewhere that several fanpages got this shirt, so I don't think there's only one out there.
