The Chicago Cubs are selling a clubhouse folding chair used by Yankees ace Masahiro Tanaka when the team visited Wrigley Field last week.

The bidding currently sits at $310 for what looks like a folding chair of above-average comfort that has no markings on it indicating its involvement with either the Cubs or Yankees. The chair does not even have Tanaka's autograph.

It seems as though the Cubs saw too many high traffic search terms ("Yankees" "Jeter" "Tanaka" "Chair") in one item to let the opportunity pass them by, but this is an odd item for anyone to want, even for the weird world of sports collectibles.
