If you need something for that tough-to-buy-for Auburn fan, here’s your chance.

The helmet worn by Chris Davis during last year’s Iron Bowl, made famous by his stunning 109-yard return return of Alabama’s missed field as time expired to give the Tigers a 34-28 victory, is going to auction.

All you need is about $25,000.

Goldin Auctions acquired the helmet from one of Davis’ family friend, ESPN.com has reported, and company president Kevin Golden expects it to sell for at least 25 grand.

“I know there are several Auburn graduates who are big memorabilia collectors who will be bidding on this,” Goldin told ESPN.com.

The helmet has been autographed by Davis and is inscribed “Game Used Iron Bowl 2013.”

From the article:

Game-used college football helmets don’t come to market often. An Archie Griffin game-used Ohio State helmet, believed to have been worn during his 1974 and 1975 Heisman seasons, sold at auction for $28,680 this year. Perhaps the most famous helmet tied to a moment is the helmet worn by Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end James Harrison. The helmet he wore in Super Bowl XLIII, when he had a record-breaking 100-yard interception return, sold for $53,775 in 2012.

The auction that includes Davis’ helmet begins Oct. 6 and ends Nov. 1.
