Nick Collison is beloved by Thunder fans for his fearless aggressiveness under the basket, and a symbol of the way he plays is being auctioned off for charity by the team’s foundation.

On April 3 in a game against the San Antonio Spurs, Collison took an elbow to the head and began to bleed like a WWF wrestler from the 1990s.

There was so much blood that plenty of it dripped onto his shoes — which have now been autographed, and can be yours for the right price.

From Erik Horne of NewsOK.com:

Nick Collison’s game-worn shoes from the April 3 game against the San Antonio Spurs are up for bid as part of the Thunder Cares August Auction. You might ask: What’s so special about these particular shoes?

Well, for starters, they have NICK COLLISON’S BLOOD ON THEM.

A brief description from the bidding website:

“Oklahoma City Thunder forward/center Nick Collison wore these shoes during the April 3, 2014, Thunder home game against the San Antonio Spurs. During the game, Collison took a hit to the head, resulting in a cut that left several drops of blood on these shoes, which Collison later autographed.”

If it isn’t wrong to sell blood-stained items to the general public, it seems fairly disgusting if nothing else.

Check out a couple of photos below in case you are deranged in some way interested.

The current bid is $800.

    If the shoes don’t fit, you must acquit.
