A Colin Kaepernick jersey, worn by the 35-year-old in a game several years ago, is now available for auction.
The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback has been out of the NFL since 2016 and it doesn’t appear that a return is likely. However, fans could snag a playoff-worn jersey via an auction, with the threads thought to be likely to command a $40,000 fee.
Kaepernick wore the jersey while playing in an NFC divisional round game in 2012, during which he threw for 263 yards, rushed for 181, and scored four touchdowns as he helped the Niners defeat Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers 45-31.
The aforementioned figure has been reported on by TMZ. The publication claims that Heritage Auctions, a company set to make the jersey available, informed them of such. The gear will come with the grass stains from that game 11 years ago, as well as Colin’s signature and the stats he wrote on it.
