Deflategate has become one of the most talked about scandals in sports history and now you can own one of the balls that started it all.
ESPN reports that a pair of Patriots fans were handed a ball by wide receiver Brandon LaFell in the third quarter of the team's now infamous AFC Championship game victory over the Indianapolis Colts.
The couple originally believed the ball was a replacement used after the deflated balls were discovered, but when the Wells Report revealed the footballs were simply re-inflated for the game's second half, Laura and Matt Nichols realized they had a piece of history.
Lelands.com will be auctioning off the football with a starting bid of $25,000 and chairman Joshua Evans told ESPN it is one of the most interesting pieces the site has ever auctioned off.
"This is a 'wow' type of collectible. This is one of the best conversation pieces that has ever been sold."
The auction will come to a close on July 17, and someone will be the proud new owner of a very expensive, slightly under-inflated football. -Brendan Maloy
