Jason, 36, gave McElhenney, 46, a shout-out during the Wednesday, November 15, episode of his “New Heights” podcast with younger brother Travis Kelce while discussing the ongoing auction benefiting the Eagles Autism Foundation. (Fans have eight more days to bid on a vintage letterman jacket signed by Kylie, 31, and inspired by a piece previously worn by Princess Diana.)
“It’s up to over $20,000 right now,” Jason said on the podcast. “At one point, Rob McElhenney … had the highest bid at $10,050.”
After the episode dropped, the It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia star reinserted himself in the conversation. “You better hit refresh @JasonKelce and @tkelce,” he tweeted, to which Jason replied, “Dude I’m trying, I think you crashed the site!!”
In a subsequent post, McElhenney shared a screenshot showing that he was once again the highest bidder in the auction. He offered up $35,000 for the autographed jacket
The Eagles announced earlier this month that the “iconic” kelly green jacket was returning to the pro shop. “We know you’ve been waiting for this one 😉,” read a tweet from the team’s official account.
Fans can purchase the throwback item for $400, but Kylie’s signed jacket is bringing in even bigger bucks. When he placed his initial bid on November 8, McElhenney tweeted, “A great cause and the greatest jacket ever made? Yes please. @JasonKelce @Eagles @eaglesautism.”
