They called them “Bold Gold”. No matter what your opinion of the style choice, it was hard not to notice when the Jacksonville Jaguars donned gold-colored uniforms for their appearance on Thursday Night Football November 19.
Now, more than 40 of the jerseys have been signed and are being sold in a charity auction benefitting the team’s foundation.
Jacksonville beat the Tennessee Titans that night but the jerseys they were wearing were a big topic of conversation on social media
The Jags’ jersey choice was part of Nike’s Color Rush campaign.
The auction includes shirts worn and signed by quarterback Blake Bortles, wide receiver Allen Robinson, running back T.J. Yeldon, linebackers Telvin Smith and Paul Posluszny and defensive lineman Jared Odrick.
Jaguars Foundation President Peter Racine called the jerseys “a unique piece of Jaguars’ history.”
Bids will be accepted online at www.jaguars.com/boldrush through 10:15 p.m. on Dec. 13. Those with winning bids will receive their jersey in time for Christmas.
Team officials say the foundation provided more than $1 million in grants this year.
