Fans can now bid on Jonny Gomes' patriotic American flag blazer

For the fan who has everything,  MLB Auctions is selling the Jonny Gomes red, white and blue blazer he wore to the White House to celebrate the team's World Series victory earlier this month. 

Here is a snapshot of the auction page: 

As of Thursday,  the current MLB auction bid stood at $1,650. Although, Red Sox fans — or flag lovers —  still have a little over a week to get their hands on a jacket that not only gets attention but also helps a good cause. 

Here is the auction lot's description: 

Bid now on this Jonny Gomes American Flag Jacket. Gomes wore this jacket during the Red Sox visit to the White House on 4/1/2014. 

All net proceeds will benefit the Travis Roy Foundation. The Travis Roy Foundation is dedicated to enhancing the life of individuals with spinal cord injuries and their families by providing adaptive equipment and to finding a cure through increased funding of research, resulting in self-reliance and the ability to be as independent as possible.

There are signatures from "30 Boston Red Sox players and coaches" on the infamous jacket, according to NESN's Zack Cox.

And when you consider the sport coat was also featured at the White House, commemorates a great moment in Red Sox history and is being auctioned for a great cause, you can expect the price to rise.
