JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Jacksonville Jaguars fans now have the opportunity to bid on a one-of-a-kind piece of sports memorabilia, as more than 40 game-worn, autographed Bold Gold jerseys are now available online for auction. All proceeds from the auction will benefit the Jacksonville Jaguars Foundation.
The Bold Gold jerseys debuted Nov. 19 in the Jaguars' win over the Tennessee Titans in prime time on Thursday Night Football, as part of the NFL and Nike's Color Rush campaign. The game-worn jerseys have been autographed by the corresponding Jaguars players, including quarterback Blake Bortles, wide receiver Allen Robinson, running back T.J. Yeldon, linebackers Telvin Smith and Paul Posluszny and defensive lineman Jared Odrick.
"Just in time for the holidays, this is a great chance to gift a loved one a truly unique piece of Jaguars history," said Jaguars Foundation President Peter Racine. "One hundred percent of your winning bid will aid the Jaguars Foundation in supporting organizations around Northeast Florida that make our community a better place to live.
Bids will be accepted online at www.jaguars.com/boldrush through 10:15 p.m. on Dec. 13. Those with winning bids will receive their jersey in time for Christmas.
Under the leadership of Jaguars owner Shad Khan and his family, the Jaguars Foundation continues to be a national leader in professional sports philanthropy, providing more than $1 million in grants this year. The Foundation continues to provide support to the community's most vulnerable children and has broken ground in new avenues that align with NFL and team priorities to extend the team's philanthropic reach in support of the community. Areas of support include, but are not limited to, military and veteran support, college scholarships, and many youth programs throughout the Greater Jacksonville Area.
