Remember when former Ohio State offensive guard Marcus Hall was ejected in the Buckeyes’ 42-41 win over rival Michigan last season, flipping the double-bird to fans on his way to the locker room? Blog Photo - Ohio State Football: Former Buckeyes OG Marcus Hall Making Money Off Double-Birds

He may have sparked an uproar at the time, but his unfledged actions are actually starting to pay off. Literally.

Fox Sports and Scout.com reporter Ben Axelrod came across a framed, autographed photo of Hall’s memorable moment in Ann Arbor while at a local sports memorabilia store in Columbus.

Axelrod tweeted, “Think a 1.5 game suspension was worth it for Marcus Hall in the long run?”

No longer a member of the Ohio State football team as a near college graduate, Hall can legally make money off his merchandise—and I’m guessing this piece will be where he earns the most revenue.

Along with his signature, Hall wrote, "4 x GOLD PANTS," referring to the gold keychain-like charms all Buckeyes receive each time they beat the Wolverines on the gridiron.

They were 4-1 during his career.

Sports Possessions has been promoting a signing event including Hall scheduled for February 22, where he is set to sign "the most popular image of the year."
