Boy, these ACOG folks, they'll give you the shirt right of their backs.

For a price, of course.

As the Games wind down, ACOG staff uniforms are among the most-desired items.

Rosemary C. Zoellner, working security Friday at the Georgia World Congress Center, said she heard her pith helmet was going for as much as $5,000.

She also heard that staff uniforms from the 1984 Los Angeles Games sold for as much as $24,000.

"If someone offered me that, I'd strip her off in the street," Zoellner said.
