"I think you crashed the site!!,” Kelce joked to McElhenney after the actor told him he placed a new bid
The Philadelphia Eagles center, 36, appeared to get excited online after actor and writer Rob McElhenney announced on X, formerly known as Twitter, that he had placed a bid for a limited-edition Eagles letterman jacket signed and modeled by Kylie.
McElhenney, 46, shared a video of Jason and his brother Travis Kelce, 34, discussing the bids for the jacket on their podcast, noting that the actor had placed the highest bid at one point at $10,050. However, Jason noted that the bid was updated to $20,000.
The It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia star tweeted at the brothers above the clip, “You better hit refresh @JasonKelce and @tkelce :).”

Jason then responded on X, “Dude I’m trying, I think you crashed the site!!,” alongside a GIF with the words “What’d you do??”
According to the Eagles Autism Foundation website, which is holding the auction, the bid for the jacket jumped up to $35,000 — making it the highest bidded item on the website so far out of all the active bids. The auction is set to close in eight days, so there is a chance that the bidding for the jacket may go even higher.
The kelly green Eagles letterman jacket, which retails for $400 and is made by Philly-based sports clothing company Mitchell & Ness, features gray and white accents with the team’s old-school logo and mascot on the back and Kylie’s autograph.
On the Eagles’ Instagram page, the mother of three smiles while wearing the iconic outerwear. She could also be seen modeling the throwback jacket as she sits down on a stairway.
Just last week, her brother-in-law Travis endorsed the look, writing in the comments, “🗣️Killin it Ky!! 🔥🔥.”
The jacket may also look familiar as it is reminiscent of the one Princess Diana was frequently photographed wearing. She even made a fashion statement with it on the June 1994 cover of PEOPLE.
As the story goes, the Princess of Wales received the jacket from the Eagles’ statistician Jack Edelstein after they connected at the funeral for Princess Grace of Monaco in 1982. Before she became a movie star and married Prince Rainier, Grace Kelly was a Philadelphia native and family friend of Edelstein.
