Jeremy Lin Underwear on eBay: Boxer Briefs up for 'Linsane' Auction [PHOTOS]

Linsanity has reached eBay again -- this time, in the form of Jeremy Lin's underwear from his days at Harvard.
That's right, an eBay seller by the name of "tieyourshoe7" has put a pair of grey boxer briefs up for auction, with a starting bid of $1,000.
"My brothers friend went to Harvard and was in the same dorm, got his boxers from the dryer on accident. Got them from him for $100 because hes stupid. Buy now and these could be worth alot in the future [sic]," the seller claims in the product description.
Lin's underwear is the latest Linsanity item to hit the eBay world. Last week, the 23-year-old New York Knicks point guard's old jersey from the Erie BayHawks sold for a whopping $13,800.
He wore the Erie jersey only once.
Other Erie items, a shooting shirt and practice jersey, fetched $3,750 and $1,914, respectively, according to GoErie.com.
But that's not the most expensive Lin item that has sold on eBay so far.
His rookie card sold for $21,580 on eBay last Thursday, after card collector Yair Rozmaryn put it up for auction. Rozmaryn, who lives in New York City, bought the card from another collector for $1,000 just when Linsanity started hitting the sports world and beyond.
So, Jeremy Lin fans. If you've got at least $1,000 in change, head over to eBay to bid on his underwear. The item expires on Wednesday night.
Lin and the Knicks will host the Cavaliers Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden.
