For $20,000, you can own Rory McIlroy’s major championship-worn pants

You can't walk a mile in Rory McIlroy's shoes, but, for the right price, you can walk a mile in the pants and shirt he wore to win the 2012 PGA Championship.

The right price is $19,999.99.

The Upper Deck Company is selling the outfit McIlroy wore for the final round at Kiawah Island, with the shirt and pants autographed by the Ulsterman. The shirt says "2nd Major Victory" and pants adorned with "2012 PGA Champion" in Sharpie.

Just months before his second major title in South Carolina in April 2012, McIlroy signed an exclusive agreement with Upper Deck to supply them with autographed memorabilia and for trading cards. Upper Deck has a similar agreement with Tiger Woods.

Upper Deck also looks to capitalize on McIlroy's two-major summer, offering several autographed pieces for pre-order, including limited edition Nike apparel and flags from both the Open Championship and PGA Championship. Those pieces can range from as little as $500 to near $900.

And while all of this merchandise may seem overpriced, there's a reason it exists: There's a market for it.
