Eastern Washington’s second season Cooper Kupp jersey will be auctioned off

He’s now a Super Bowl champion and MVP, but in 2014 he was just a sophomore wide receiver at Eastern Washington University, hoping to one day catch the attention of a team in the NFL who could try his luck with a child from a small school.

It’s safe to say that seven seasons later, it’s all been fine.

While a few of his LA Rams jerseys have been released in one way or another, Heritage Auctions is offering a jersey from this collegiate season in its upcoming May Sports Catalog auction. It is expected to sell for at least $15,000.

The jersey is autographed and is from the school’s annual military appreciation game in which jerseys worn by the EWU Eagles are auctioned off for charity.

The jersey is made of black micromesh and was donned by 21-year-old Kupp during the game against Northern Colorado. It has a stars and stripes pattern on the shoulders and sleeves and the Big Sky Conference logo on the left and right chest, integrated into the fabric. According to Heritage, “best of all are the sleeve and cue customizations and evidence of light game wear.” It is signed on the front, “Cooper Kupp 10” in white paint pen.

The COA on the “Eastern Washington University” letterhead reads: “The University of Eastern Washington Athletic Department hereby certifies…that this jersey was worn by Cooper Kupp on October 18, 2014 in the Military Appreciation game against the University of Northern Colorado … and that Cooper Kupp personally signed this shirt after the game.”

Kupp is the NCAA’s all-time leader in career receiving yards with 6,464 and led the NFL in receptions, receiving touchdowns and yards per game last season. His 1,947 receiving yards set an NFL record. His 33 playoff catches also set a new mark.

The auction is set to open on April 21.
