Floyd Mayweather is teaming up with publisher MYMAG to make a personalized magazine. The magazine will feature some original content about Mayweather's personal life along with Mayweather's favorite magazine content.
Apparently the magazine will be a limited edition of 2,500 copies that will feature gold leaf lettering. Also the limited edition package comes with a deck of 52 playing cards and some poker chips, because Floyd has a gambling problem or lives in Vegas or something. Other celebrities that have a MYMAG include Diddy, Olivia Munn, Brett Ratner, Andrea Rosso, Steve Aoki, and Deepak Chopra. Basically it seems that you make one of these magazines if you have an extremely high opinion of yourself and a ton of money, which explains why Floyd is making one.
I have no idea why someone would want to buy something like this. If I wanted to have a biased look inside Floyd Mayweather's life, I would read more FightHype. That being said, this would be the ultimate trump card in arguments about who is a bigger Floyd fan. But seriously, what kind of inside scoop are these guys going to get that will not be on the HBO 24/7 series?
Given the shift of magazine content from print to online, it seems a little strange to have a personalized print magazine but whatever floats your boat I guess. Do you guys have any interest in buying this magazine? If you do, please let us know what specifically interests you, because I frankly can't see any appeal with this item.
Note from Scott: Waldo scheduled this late last night so that it would post this morning, and when I saw it in the queue it was just too good for me to not add something. This is incredible. He's gunning to be the new Oprah. If someone who matters happens to be reading this, give me a review copy of the Mayweather mag. I swear on my mother's eyes I will be totally unbiased and fair. If the magazine is kickass or even just so psychotically self-centered that it rules, I will absolutely say so. I have never in my life asked for a review copy of anything, but this I have got to have. Also the playing cards, so that I can Instagram my poker chip winnings next to the Mayweather cards when I totally smoke my buddies in some hold'em. I MUST HAVE THIS FUCKING MAGAZINE.
