Interest in Jeremy Lin‘s meteoric rise to the biggest name in The Big Apple might be waning just a bit, but a key piece of his memorabilia is on the auction block and could change some people’s minds once again.
Because it, too, is a bit lin-sane.
It’s his game-used New York Knicks jersey from Feb. 10 — the night he scored a career-high 38 points in a win over the Los Angeles Lakers — and it’s being sold as part of a package with four Knicks tickets and the chance to meet Lin through CharityBuzz.com.
The auction ends at noon on Tuesday and bidding presently stands at $31,388. It benefits The Garden of Dreams Foundation.
