As if NFL fans couldn’t forget the now infamous “mid-game meltdown” by then Bucs WR Antonio Brown during the Week 17 matchup with the New York Jets, one lucky person will have the constant reminder in the form of the right-hand glove he threw into the crowd as he stormed off the field.
Lelands Auctions listed the item, and as expected, it’s already taking off.
To set the scene for those who may not know, early in the third on January 2, 2022, the Bucs trailed the Jets, 24-10, and Brown, who got benched for a short time earlier in the game, began to take off his uniform when coach Bruce Arians wanted Brown to re-enter the game.
As of Tuesday afternoon, the glove, which started at $81, is now up to $1,718. That’s after 28 bids, with 11 days left, according to Lelands website.
“The glove is white, with a black Nike Sploosh on the back. Inside, at the wrist, the glove also has an NFL logo and an “Apollo Nia” tag,” Lelands writes in its description. “On the outside back of the wristband is imprinted ‘Superbad.'”
While reading over the description, there’s an interesting mention by Lelands regarding the piece of memorabilia.
Lelands says, and you can see from the pictures, that there is a blacked-out Raiders logo on the glove, indicating it’s from Brown’s short-lived playing days as a member of the team.
How much do you think this piece of NFL history will end up selling for?
