From ESPN: To celebrate Montana legend "Super Dave" Dickenson's induction into the College Football Hall of Fame, the Grizzlies are wearing throwback jerseys against Sacramento State and offering the game-worn unis to fans for $175 each. In 1995, Dickenson threw for 5,676 yards and 51 touchdowns, won the Walter Payton Award as the best player in Division I-AA and led the Griz to a national title. Fans responded enthusiastically to the gesture, with Montana announcing the entire set of jerseys sold out in four hours.

At a school like Montana, I can see how every jersey is valued the same but that obviously wouldn't be the case at a school like Ohio State, which has nationally known stars. Some are going to fetch more than others.

Suppose Ohio State did this but as a blind auction. How much would you be willing to pay for a one-of-a-kind commemorative gameworn Bosa or Dremont or Dobbins or Haskins or Weber jersey? What could the revenue generated by something like this be used for?
