Wall Street Bankruptcy Memorabilia


Hundreds of Lehman Brothers’ branded koozies, pens and stress balls are on sale after a recent bankruptcy court ruling in New York. Judge James Peck has ordered Barclays PLC, which bought a part of Lehman Brothers last year, to return thousands of promotional products that have been sitting in storage since September. A Lehman spokesman says the former financial services giant will sell the items in a continuing effort to pay off its creditors. According to The Wall Street Journal, similar items have been hot sellers on eBay. For example, a branded   water resistant canvas bag was bought online for nearly $75. Since December, the roughly 1,000 items on eBay tagged “Lehman Brothers” have a sell rate of 70%. Lehman Brothers filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy last year. Lehman Brothers Holdings still owes its creditors $200 billion
