A PIECE OF NFL history has entered the auction room following the LA Rams’ historic 23-20 win over the Bengals at Super Bowl LVI.
American football fans can bid on a pigskin autographed by stars of the 2022 halftime show including Dr. Dre, Eminem and Kendrick Lemar.
The rap icons put on a mesmerizing show at halftime before Matthew Stafford led the Rams to their first NFL title since 2000.
West Coast superstars Dre and Eminem were joined by Snoop Dogg, Mary J Blige and 50 Cent at a nostalgia festival at SoFi Stadium.
And now bettors have a chance to bid on a ball autographed by five of the cast of one of the greatest halftime shows of all time.
One lucky fan, hosted by Heritage Auctions, snagged the signatures of Dre, Eminem, Mary J, Kendrick and Anderson .Paak after their exploits in LA.
According to TMZ, the precious memento has an affordable guide price of just $1,500.
But bidding already topped that on April 25, and the ball is set to hit the auction room sometime between May 12 and 14.
The Wilson ball features the Super Bowl LVI logo and comes complete with letters of authenticity to prove the autographs are real.
Heritage’s ad reads: “Qualified by many as the ‘best Super Bowl halftime show’ of all time, the 2022 Super Bowl LVI show celebrated hip-hop, its pioneers and current stars, and of course the music of Los Angeles.
“Dr. Dre has made headlines alongside his superstar protégés Snoop Dogg and Eminem with the help of icons Mary J. Blige and 50 Cent, as well as current chart topper Anderson .Paak and Kendrick Lamar.
“This Wilson leather ball is signed in bold black ink by Dre, Em, Mary J, Anderson .Paak and Kendrick.
“The autographs were acquired from our consignor at Big Game and are some of the best collectibles we’ve seen from the legendary show.”
Fans loved the show, which saw Eminem get on his knees, despite officials reportedly asking him not to do so.
In a powerful moment at the end of his hit song Lose Yourself, Eminem took his knee with his head in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.
While eagle-eyed fans watched Snoop warm up for the performance of his life in what appeared to be the only way he knew how – by toking on a joint.
The new 2022-23 NFL season begins Thursday, September 8, and Super Bowl LVII is scheduled for February 12 next year.
