Find your mortgage-meltdown souvenirs on eBay


Looking for a gift for that special someone? How about a teddy bear, beach towel or football with the name of a recently-defunct Wall Street investment bank printed on it?

As Reuters reported, a few dozen Bear Stearns items are available for bid on eBay (pens, stock certificates, golf balls, t-shirts and even a wine-stopper set). The starting bid for this brand-new stuffed Bear Stearns teddy bear: $14.95.

“Commemorate one of the biggest and stunning collapses in U.S. history with this lovely and cute tan-colored teddy bear complete with an outfit of pants, collared shirt, Bear Stearns suspenders and neck-tie,” the description on Ebay reads.
