What might possibly be the strangest, and definitely the coolest, piece of sports memorabilia could be yours.

Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III will be auctioning off his team-signed ankle cast– the one that shielded his dislocation near the start of the 2014 season– in order to raise money for his “Family of 3” foundation.

The last day to bid is February 13 by 6 pm.

“After dislocating his ankle in the September 14th game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Robert was forced to wear this cast,” the foundation’s website reads. “In a show of support for their teammate, the entire team signed the cast. Notable signatures include: Alfred Morris, DeAngelo Hall, Desean Jackson, Pierre Garcon and many more.”

The “Family of 3” foundation works to support people’s dreams who need help achieving them.

So far, Griffin III is aiding a medically retired Marine, who suffered a penetrating brain injury as well as a young student living with Cerebral Palsy.

As the foundation’s message reads, “I want people to understand that their dreams aren’t out of reach, and that anything is possible. As a collective Family, we will  strive to create meaningful networks for people in our everyday lives by providing them with access to the tools and resources necessary to reach their fullest potential. Most importantly, we want to provide hope, support and opportunity to all and be that extra push people need in order to realize and catch their dreams.”

Griffin is also selling five versions of motivational wristbands, offering different colors for “#ThisIsForUs” and “Know Your Why” messages.

We’d love to hear back from the winner of this item. How do you display it? Where do you put it? Can you identify all the players’ signatures?

So many questions, but great ones to have.
