Yesterday, tourists were posing for pictures outside of Lehman Brothers in New York City, doubtless to show everyone back home that they were there the day Lehman Brothers went down (Photo by Michael Nagle/Getty Images).
Today, eBay’s doing some brisk business with all sorts of Lehman Brothers and Merrill Lynch memorabilia being sold by employees. Coffee mugs with the Lehman logo are going for as much as 50 bucks. There are baseball caps, pens, totes, a Lehman Brothers logo tie — even an authentic and RARE executive flashlight. A Merrill Lynch T-shirt and golf bag were up for sale, too. And the really, really nostalgic can bid on a golden Merrill Lynch license plate — with a bull on it.
