HIllary and Obama Tees on eBay

No More Polls: eBay Is the New Measure of Candidate's Worth

Two limited-edition tees squared off on eBay. One, a Marc Jacobs number starring Hillary, the other, Obama-bedecked and designed by graffiti artist, Obey. Though eBay resale price is probably not any measure of a candidate's popularity, Hillary is fetching an average price of $55, and Obama a staggering $382.

Would you bid on either? Is the price differential more a reflection on the style of shirt than the candidates?

I think the Obama shirt is kind of cheesy looking and the Hillary one is almost retro and minimalist. . .I actually like the Hillary design more.

For her sake, I hope she looks better, or at least in likeness to that shirt, because every time I've watched her on TV or seen a photo of her, she doesn't look that great. Where did you see her speak?

I think maybe Hillary doesn't come across well on TV. I remember going to see her stump for Bill way back when and she was electric! The crowd was on its feet and vibe was definitely exciting! She spoke well and inspired us! I didn't feel as though I has missed out because we only got Hil and not Bill....she gave me goosebumps!

This kind of dumb. But I agree with jnm9jem. I saw Hillary speak and she was amazing.

Hillary WISHES she looked as good as that shirt... I don't wear these kinds of shirts, so it's irrevelent to me.

I'm a Hillary supporter and a Marc Jacobs fan but Barack's just looks cooler. I don't care for the Vicki B. MJ tee either. I don't think it's the only thing going on here either....but I think it's just candidate versus candidate with rock star tactics. Thus---> "oh em gee! I hafta to get that tee so he'll SEE ME!!!" Hehe. Or just that it looks way better. ^^

It's a question of supply and demand. Fewer Obama shirts were made, so that's why they fetch more on eBay. From a design standpoint, the Obama shirt is more modern than Marc's Hillary shirt. But I don't think that's the only thing goin' on.

Although the Obama one is cooler, so I don't know.

I think it is especially remarkable considering Hillary's is a Marc Jacobs. I do think the Obama shirt looks more stylish, though.

That is so interesting! Even Marc Jacobs couldn't pull in higher bids for the Hillary shirt, but it is a pretty blah depiction of her, in contrast to the Obama visage and message.
