I'm fairly certain there is only one tie leaguewide.

The tie costs $75 and only $7.26 of it goes to charity?

$7.26?!?!?! What!?!?! I actually went to the PensGear store yesterday specifically to get one of these but they were sold out. $7.26 of $75 is horse poo!!! I am SOOO glad that I did not get one now.

Well, Vineyard Vines ties regularly go for $75-$85, so it's not like it's marked up in order to make it a charity tie. Their ties aren't my style at all, but that's what they charge.

Could be worse. Only 3.54% of the sales from any pink NFL item ends up going to cancer research.

I could never justify over $30 for a tie. Maybe if 20 of it went to charity. Maybe.

I was thinking... $75 for the tie. $20 to the tie people. $5 to the NHL, $50 to cancer research. O nly 10% is pathetic. Lost a lot of respect for the Hockey Fights Cancer program, A LOT!!!
