    Saw this on an ebay description of a "MPH" pit boss.
    MPH stands for "Mister Potato Head".

    If they had too many parts of a discontinued model they put together "non-stock" colorways and sold them as "MPH" models. MPH models may have a frame and color combination that was never officially released, BUT they're still the same glasses.
    Oakley MPH are indeed authentic. You may notice that the dimensions printed at the frame are gone and the warranty papers may be replaced. Another MPH difference is that you will get a different pouch (usually the plain black) and box.

    For further information regarding OEM or MPH you can go to Oakley Forum.

    Here is the link to his "pit boss" so you guys can read the description.

    Yes it is true. It is not an official color way, instead they are utilizing left over parts to create the glasses like a "Mister Potato Head", more info here: Oakley Felon MPH | Oakley Forum

    MPH stands for "Mister Potato Head" is Correct.
    However that is a Crystal Black Pit Bull not Pit Boss. Which the seller states in Item Specifics.

    If he had listed that pair as pit bulls i would have not questioned it, but he also had to go and use the forum to peddle his "pit boss".

    I saw these yesterday and dismissed them right off because they are not Pitbosses like the title states, pitbull for sure. But very interesting color choice for sure.

    Wow very cool! Didn't know about this.

    Sometimes, you can score a decent deal because a seller mis-states what they have, or just doesn't know
