The jersey former Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel wore during the home games of the 2012 season — Manziel’s Heisman-winning campaign — will go to auction in August.

The maroon jersey is autographed by Manziel in silver metallic pen and also has all of his stats from his Heisman season.

SCP Auctions, who announced Monday it had obtained the jersey though didn’t divulge from whom, said the jersey is authentic and thought the item could go for as much as $100,000, making it the most expensive collegiate jersey ever auctioned.

According to SCP Auctions, the highest known price ever paid for a game-worn collegiate jersey was $27,000 for a Notre Dame Paul Hornung jersey.

"This is his only game-used jersey from his college career that has come to market," Dan Imler, vice president of SCP Auctions told ESPN.com.

"It has been a long time since we've seen a player as polarizing as Johnny Football. He has got an electrifying personality and everyone is either rooting for or against him."

The jersey will be on display at the National Sports Collectors Convention in Cleveland this week, but will be on auction from Aug. 6 to Aug. 23.

The jersey was originally placed on eBay with a price tag of $300,000, but that also included the cleats Manziel wore during his 2012 win against Alabama.
