Now you can listen to listen to MP3's of Mason belting "Deee-troit, bas-ket-ball!!!!" on a proper MP3 player.
The Detroit Pistons MP3 Player looks to be a 1st generation Ipod Shuffle with the Pistons logo on it. The description incorrectly states the memory capacity of 128 MB, it's more like 512 MB. Proceeds from the sale of the Pistons MP3 players will benefit the Detroit Medical Center for Breast Cancer Prevention.
At $25 a pop this is a great price and it's for a good cause. The 1st gen shuffles are good to workout with. I have the 1 GB edition which can store roughly 200 songs on it. You can order one at the Palace Lockerroom Store or by clicking here. (Pistons MP3 Player)
NBA Auctions has a Rasheed Wallace autographed one (shown in the pic) up for bid right now. (Rasheed Wallace Autographed MP3 Player)
Editor's Note: The MP3 player correctly states that the capacity is 128 MB not 512 MB as I assumed. Once again I was wrrrr... I was wrrr... wrong.
Editor's Note 2: According to the fine people at daringfireball.net, the Pistons MP3 Player is an Ipod Shuffle rip-off. Believe me, after looking at the packaging up close, I was fooled. I'll stick to hoops.
