You don’t have to be real observant to see the NFL’s commitment to its partnership fight against cancer. The league’s Breast Cancer Awareness campaign extends to the field where game-used, game-worn and autographed items carrying the pink theme are being harvested from the sideline and sold.
NFL Auctions is taking bids on a variety of footballs, pink accented game shoes and jerseys. Proceeds benefit the American Cancer Society.
Among the recent sellers: a football carrying the pink ribbon logo, signed by Vikings’ running back Adrian Peterson (“All Day” and “God Bless” inscriptions included). It sold for $1055 Monday night. That still didn’t beat a BCA ball signed by Rams’ rookie quarterback Sam Bradford, which brought $1196 or a Miles Austin signed ball that drew 73 bids before closing at a price of $1205.
Shoes worn and signed by Raiders’ running back Michael Bush sold for $470 after garnering 53 bids.
Up for bid until next Monday are jerseys worn during BCA games by the likes of Brian Urlacher (currently at $3005), Julius Peppers ($2105), Aaron Rodgers, Eli Manning, Drew Brees, Steven Jackson and London Fletcher among others.
