Thirty dollars is a small price to pay to own a John Scott All-Star shirt — actually, it was apparently too small a price to pay.
In a way it’s not really surprising as Scott certainly stands out from the crowd. The enforcer is far from the type of player you would expect to see participating in the All-Star Game. He got in because of the fan vote though and has an underdog quality to him, especially after Arizona traded him to Montreal and he was subsequently relegated to the minors.
If nothing else, his presence provides spice to the event and is a novelty that it seems some people would like to commemorate with a memento.
