Travis Kelce isn’t the sole Kelce sibling making headlines.
Jason Kelce, the 36-year-old Philadelphia Eagles center, expressed enthusiasm about an NFL auction showcasing his wife, Kylie Kelce. Actor and writer Rob McElhenney announced on Twitter that he had placed a bid for a limited-edition Eagles letterman jacket signed and modeled by Kylie.
In a video shared by McElhenney, Jason and his brother Travis Kelce, 34, discussed the bids for the jacket on their podcast. McElhenney initially held the highest bid at $10,050, but Jason later revealed that the bid had increased to $20,000. McElhenney tweeted at the Kelce brothers, playfully urging them to refresh the bidding page.
Jason responded on Twitter, jokingly claiming that McElhenney had crashed the site with his bid. The bidding subsequently surged to $35,000, making it the highest bid on the Eagles Autism Foundation website, where the auction is being hosted. With eight days left until the auction closes, there’s a possibility that the bid for the jacket may continue to rise.
The kelly green Eagles letterman jacket, valued at $400 and crafted by Mitchell & Ness, a Philly-based sports clothing company, showcases gray and white accents along with the team’s vintage logo and mascot on the back, featuring Kylie’s signature. McElhenney’s active participation in the auction reflects his deep affection for all things Philly.
