Even EBay Gets in on the Super Bowl Action

Super Bowl 43 is just around the corner and much of the country is trying to comprehend how the Arizona Cardinals ended up in the final showdown, preparing to go head-to-head with “Big Ben” and the Pittsburgh Steelers.

With this unexpected and exciting match-up, the one question on everyone’s mind is who will emerge victorious at the February 1st face-off?

With a little less than a week until kick-off, eBay users are showing strong support for the Steelers and are leaving the Cardinals to fend for themselves. According to eBay data, over the past 30 days:

· 25,427 Steelers items sold on eBay compared to 5,462 Cardinals related- items

· But the Cardinals star receiver Larry Fitzgerald is blowing the Steelers defensive player of the year, James Harrison, off of the field with 2,306 related listings in comparison to Harrison’s mere 261.

“The competition is heating up, but eBay fans are speaking loud and clear,” said eBay Pop Culture Expert Karen Bard. “Despite their love for Larry Fitzgerald, football is a team sport and the Steelers are the frontrunners for a Super Bowl victory on eBay,”

So what’s the Super Bowl score on eBay?


· Number of eBay listings this past week: 13,314 – a 44 percent increase over the past week.

· Steelers supporters can pick up these fan favorites on the site: Pittsburgh Steelers Mini Fridge Refrigerator, Pittsburgh Steelers Troy Polamalu Photo Football, or Ben Roethlisberger Pink Jersey Earrings

    I have to say the steelers are the frontrunners, but think about the last two playoff games the cardinals were in nobody gave them a chance. I think the Cards are going to run away with this one.
