Dan Hanzus of NFL.com reports that New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin is auctioning off a couple small pieces of history to raise money for The Tom Coughlin Jay Fund Foundation, which assists children with leukemia and other cancers.
Coughlin is auctioning off his game-worn hat and the flip card he used in Super Bowl XLVI. He autographed both items and the bidding begins at $5,000. The auction will likely bring some money for a good cause. You can click right here to bid on those items at eBay.
Not to be outdone, however, it appears that New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick is hosting an auction of his own*, with proceeds going to something that is reportedly only referred to as "The Bill Belichick Buy Me A New La-Z-Boy I Mean Sick People Or Something Legit Charity." Items on offer at the Belichick auction include:
- A pile of hoodies with what is described as a "moderately funky" odor
- Tom Brady game-worn UGGs
- 25 of those T-shirts with Johnny Cash flipping the bird
- A lot labeled "Official Prototype Vince Wilfork Souvenir 'Wil-Forks,'" which appears to just be a box of forks
- Tendons that once resided in Rob Gronkowski's ankle
