The glove Antonio Brown angrily tossed into the crowd after quitting the Bucs could be in your hands if you have the cash.

Brown chucked this item into the crowd of Metlife Stadium during his meltdown on Jan. 2, and it's now up for auction.

Lelands Sports Memorabilia and Card Auctions listed the item with an opening bid of $81 on Sunday, and the price has since gone up to $3,045. The glove auction will close on Feb. 12 at 10 p.m. The starting bid holds significance, as 81 was Brown's jersey number with the Bucs.

The glove was caught by Mark McKee, but it's unclear who exactly is selling the item.
The former wide receiver for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers lost his cool during the Buccaneers vs New York Jets game last month. Brown is reported to credit the emotional response to coach Bruce Arians having him leave the field after mentioning to Arians he was too injured to play.

Arians counter-argued that statement, claiming Brown's frustrations came from lack of targets and led to multiple teammates needing to calm him during halftime.

The final nail in the coffin for Brown's relationship with the Bucs was placed after the former NFL star filed a defamation lawsuit against the team. The legal action comes after allegations of mental health issues circulated in multiple reports regarding the incident at the Jan. 2 game.

Brown has since been released from the team but is hoping to rejoin the league next season.
