NFLs pink items hitting auction block

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.
