Chris Spielman's EBay Account Reinstated After Suspension for “Not Promoting a Positive Buying and Selling Environment”

Chris Spielman's efforts to raise money for people affected by the coronavirus outbreak hit an unexpected roadblock on Sunday.

One day after his 1984 Big Ten Championship ring sold for $12,000, eBay suspended Spielman's account on Sunday, informing the former Ohio State linebacker that it was “not comfortable with your selling practices or business model, and we feel they don't help to promote a positive buying or selling environment.”

At the time, Spielman was told by an eBay representative that “this decision is final and cannot be changed.”

As it turned out, that decision could be changed.
