The official sweater of the 2014 USA Olympic team is sold out everywhere, but those lucky enough to snag one are making big money online.

The Ralph Lauren sweater went for sale online for $595 and sold out immediately.

Now, the few who got their hands on one are selling them on Ebay to the tune of nearly $8,000.

Although the sweaters are hand-stitched and made in America, many have likened them to an ugly Christmas sweater.

For anyone looking to get in the patriotic spirit, there are still $250 blankets and $95 hats available online.
