Michael Sam

Now Open

for Business

3/8/2014 12:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0308-michael-sam-store-01If you had "under one month" in your "When Will Michael Sam Cash in on His Newfound Fame" office pool, then congrats ... YOU'RE A WINNER!!!

Sam, who is about to be drafted into the NFL and thus become the first openly gay man to play in the league, has launched his own line of merchandise, which is now for sale on his website.


The site is selling t-shirts and buttons with slogans like "Stand With Sam" and "#SamStrong." The majority of the merchandise is in black, white, and gold (his college colors).

But Sam is no fool ... he's got a few items for sale thats use the rainbow flag, a prominent symbol in the gay rights community. As the old saying goes ... know your customer.

A portion of the proceeds will be going to at-risk youth in the St. Louis area.

I have two homo family members,and even these comments would make them laugh, not all queers are uptight,some have a great sense of humor. At least they don't run around telling everyone- hey look at me I'm gay.

He's just doing what all the other successful athletes are doing and it's for a cause/movement. I do have to say it is a bit tacky doing it before he's even drafted.

He's not talented enough for a team to endure that self serving circus.
