One of Johnny Manziel’s Texas A&M jerseys from his Heisman season has hit the auction block, and it is expected to bring in a small fortune. According to a report from ESPN’s Darren Rovell, SCP Auctions estimates the winning bid will be close to, or surpass, six figures. If Manziel’s jersey does bring in that kind of coin, it will completely blow Paul Hornung’s $27,000 jersey auction (believed to be the current record holder) out of the water.
“This is his only game-used jersey from his college career that has come to market,” said Dan Imler, vice president of the company. Imler said that given the interest around Manziel, the auction house estimates a winning bid of about $100,000.
“It has been a long time since we’ve seen a player as polarizing as Johnny Football,” Imler said. “He has got an electrifying personality and everyone is either rooting for or against him.”
The jersey, which has been authenticated by SCP Auctions, was worn by Manziel during the Aggies’ 2012 home games. It has been signed by the Heisman winner with his stats from that season.
For those of you looking to get in on the fun, bidding on the jersey will begin on Aug. 6 and will close on Aug. 23.
