One Shaq fan can own a signed pack of Oreos

By Chris Olds | Basketball Editor

The Amusing Retiree, Shaquille O’Neal, has been one to watch on Twitter for some time now, but one of his latest tweets just might be one that has a SuperCollector or two (Have you entered your collection?)  licking their chops.

Over what? A bag of Oreos. More specifically, an autographed bag of Triple Double Oreos along with a case of the cookies as a bonus that is up for grabs in a charity auction to benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Newark.

Why? Why not?

“Even [though] I’m retired I’m still dunkin'” he tweeted Wednesday. “Get a signed [pack] of Triple Double Oreos and help.”

You may think the auction is a bit tongue in cheek — well, isn’t everything with Shaq these days? — but the cause is a good one and, well, it’s an unusual item. It’s one that the collector who has Everything Shaq simply won’t have — yet.

How much is the bidding, which ends Friday, up to?

Be sure you click that affiliate link, kiddies. Chris has to make himself some money. Hey Olds, I’ll be contacting Beckett just to make sure you aren’t making any personal $ from this gig…

Hmmm…but if you’re the winner, the question is do you actually eat the Oreos and save the wrapper or do you preserve the whole thing like a box of Wheaties?

Sold for over $160. That’s some pricey cookies.
