Newcastle United’s iconic East Stand lettering up for sale on eBay
Do we have to spell it out?
The Newcastle United lettering for the St James’ Park East Stand has been listed for sale on eBay.
Twitchy Toon fans have been concerned for a while that Mike Ashley was planning to remove the distinctive signage to make way for a giant Sports Direct logo. It looks like they were right, although they have now got the chance to own the letters.
Each 6ft letter spelling out Newcastle United is now listed on the club’s charity eBay account. The ‘N’ is currently the most popular lot, and is yours for £770 at the time of writing.
Bizarrely, the other ‘N’ is only £205 and there is no indication which is from Newcastle and which is from United.
So, if you’re a Newcastle fan or just someone with a bit of land who would like to spell out ELASTIC NEWD NEWT in giant letters around the garden, get bidding!
