The NFL's ongoing auction platform rolls on with some AFL Legacy jerseys and an important game-used football among the items sold this week.
Would you spend $910 on an autographed towel?
Results on the official NFL Auction platform continue to show a mix of bargains and head scratchers. Prices for game worn NFL jerseys have been fairly reasonable considering the market, but a few stood out with bids topping $2000 for signed shirts worn in games played during October.
Topping the list was a Patrick Willis 49ers jersey with the pink captain's patch. It sold for $2755.
AFL Legacy jerseys have proven to be popular among collectors in love with the old school style. Shawn Merriman's jersey from the Legacy game on October 19 sold for $2415 this week while Vince Young's Houston Oilers model from the Tennessee Titans' October 18th contest brought $2018 after 38 bids were entered online. An old school jersey worn by Broncos' quarterback Kyle Orton brought $1478.
Relative bargains sometimes pop through the cracks. You could easily classify the 2008 AFC Championship game kickoff football in that group. The one-of-a-kind ball from the Steelers vs Ravens encounter sold for just $610. If the winning bidder adds some signatures from the team that became Super Bowl champs, the ball would turn into almost a museum-quality type piece.
Items from the breast cancer awareness event games continue to filter through. A pair of Reggie Bush pink game-worn shoes, signed by the Saints' running back, drew 32 bids and sold for $1675. A sideline towel signed by members of the Indianapolis Colts was hot, closing at $910.
