Harvard Merchandise Across the Web

Unfortunately for the Linsane, this listing was quickly taken down. There is, however, a used Harvard Under Armour tank top for sale! No connection to Lin was disclosed, except for the obvious Harvard link.
In the case that used clothing with dubious and tenuous links to JLin are not your cup of tea, we scoured the Internet to find some other Harvard-related gems for sale:
You've always wanted to go to Hogwarts and bragged to your friends back home that Annenberg is just like the Great Hall.

Stay classy, brah.
