Cowboys Jason Witten Auctions 'Selfie' Pic and Prizes for $5,000

Dallas Cowboys tight end and future Hall of Famer Jason Witten served as auctioneer for his own donation during a charity event for the Our Father’s Children organization over the weekend. The charity reaches out to abused and neglected children. To support the cause, Witten donated an autograph jersey to be auctioned off by…well, himself. He also appeared as the event’s featured speaker during the dinner on Saturday night. But as Witten tried his hand at auctioneering, he found keeping the energy level up for the bidding slightly awkward. But he overcame it gracefully with charm and humor, even jokingly asking the crowd if they’d donate more if the jersey had been signed by Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo instead. The crowd erupted in laughter as Witten at one point pleaded:

“Somebody buy it, man please!”

The twelfth-year veteran also began adding items to his autograph jersey to help raise the bidding price. The impromptu prize pack eventually included his signed jersey, two-tickets to any Cowboys home game this year, pre-game sideline passes, an 8×10 autographed photo…and a “selfie” picture with Witten right then! Checkout the hilarious video below from the event:
