The glove that former Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown threw into the crowd during his bizarre stadium exit against the Jets is now up for auction.
According to ESPN, the listing for the glove is published by Leland Sports Memorabilia and Card Auctions, which coined the glove as a “tangible memento from an iconic sports moment.”
The right glove started with a bid of $81, which was Brown’s number with the team before the Tampa Bay Buccaneers released him. By Monday afternoon, it had a bid of more than $1,500.
The auction will end on February 12th, the day before the Super Bowl.
According to the description, the Nike glove actually has a Las Vegas Raiders logo on it that has been blacked out from when Brown was briefly on the team, but never actually played a game. He was released by the team in September 2019.
It was in early January when Brown made major headlines aftewr he was seen stripping off his uniform and running off the field while his team was on offense. He was the last time he played in a Tampa Bay uniform. He was released shortly after the game.
Since the incident, Brown has gone on a media tour to tell his side of the story and state the reason for his frustration was he felt he was too injured to play, and that the Tampa Bay staff disagreed and thought he was healthy enough to take the field.
Brown has threatened to sue the Buccaneers for incentives in his contract that he feels should have been guaranteed. That lawsuit has yet to be filed.
The 33-year-old said he hopes to play elsewhere in the NFL next season.
