Red Sox Nation Too Poor to Buy Papi’s Car

David Ortiz received no bids on the internet auction site eBay while trying to sell a present he bought himself after the Red Sox won the World Series in 2004. Bidding ended yesterday for a 2005 Mercedes Benz SL-Class SL65 AMG own by Ortiz, which he bought for $205,000 and added an additional $35,000 in accessories.

The 12-cylinder, 604 horsepower car received bids up to $525,000, however, it appears that none of them were legitimate and were therefore removed. According to the listing, “This car has been pampered for its short life, taking Big Papi back and forth to Fenway Park. The car has a little over 4,000 miles on it and has been always dealer serviced and is in immaculate, showroom condition.”
