Turn Your Boston Marathon Finishing Medals Into Cash

A Boston Marathon finisher's medal is just going to sit around your house anyway. Why not sell it on eBay?

Canadian Running Magazine reports on the trend of the last few years: finisher's medals from Boston begin popping up for auction in the days following the race, one from last year fetching $600. This one from the 2014 race has already reached $370 and climbing.

Selling your personal property is right and good—provided you paid for your medal through your registration fee. It's a bigger problem if you stole someone's bib off Instagram, photocopied it, and passed it to your shithead friends.
