Photo: Infamous barrel worn by late Broncos fan up for sale on eBay

An infamous game-worn barrel sported by devoted Denver Broncos fan Tim KcKernan during the 2001 season is currently up for auction on eBay.

McKernan, a.k.a. The Barrel Man, donned the trademark costume at home games, regardless of the weather, for over 30 years. His outfit also featured a cowboy hat and boots as seen in the photo above.

The authentic item had an initial listing price of $300 with a "buy it now" offer of $500. However, the bidding had already reached $1,925.00 at the time of this writing. The auction is set to end late Sunday evening.

The barrel also comes with a signed letter of authenticity from widow Becky McKernan.

Mr. McKernan, who was among the first class inducted into the VISA Hall of Fans at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1999, passed away in December 2009 at the age of 69.
