The website for an auction house that specializes in sports memorabilia says it is offering the Washington Nationals jersey Bryce Harper was wearing on the day he and teammate Jonathan Papelbon got into a dugout dustup last season.

A listing on Lelands.com shows an item it calls “Bryce Harper signed game worn jersey from the Papelbon fight (MLB authentic).”

As of 11 a.m. EDT Saturday, the website said there had been six bids, with a top offer of about $4,800.

During a home game in September, Papelbon grabbed Harper by the throat, then shoved the eventual NL MVP with both hands before teammates and members of Washington’s coaching staff intervened. Papelbon was suspended for four games by the Nationals.
