Eli Manning’s helmet from the 2008 Super Bowl is up for auction right now with bidding pushing toward $70,000 and several days still left in the bidding.
Remember when he was a San Diego Charger?
You’re excused if not, because his tenure lasted only about 45 minutes.
Manning had told San Diego he had no interest in playing for them but the team took him first overall in the 2004 draft before working out the final details on a deal that sent him to the New York Giants, where he’s played ever since.
Eli, his father Archie and mom Olivia posed with commissioner Paul Tagliabue immediately after the announcement–a very awkward moment. On the Dan Patrick Show, Eli was asked about that jersey.
