A match worn Johnny Manziel game jersey from his days with Texas A&M could be set to become the most expensive college football jersey ever.

SCP Auctions announced on Monday that it had obtained the very jersey that Manziel wore for all six home games during the 2012 season.

Believed to have been worn during the six games at Kyle Field while Manziel put together a season that would see him win the Heisman trophy, the jersey is expected to go for $100,000.

Dan Imler, the Vice President of SCP Auctions has said: "This is his only game-used jersey from his college career that has come to market."

Imler continued to praise the now Cleveland Browns Quarterback stating that ""It has been a long time since we've seen a player as polarizing as Johnny Football,

"He has got an electrifying personality and everyone is either rooting for or against him."

It is the only Manziel jersey released to the public and now SCP has secured  all rights and ownership of the product.

It has been verified by looking at  pictures of Manziel during the 2012 season and examining wear and tear on the shirt itself with pictures from the season.

Manziel himself autographed the jersey in silver pen along with the statistics from his Heisman year all still written on the jersey.

People expected to bid on the jersey included die hard Aggies fans and private collectors from around the world who pride themselves on obtaining rare items.

The Jersey is currently on display at the National Sports Collectors Convention in Cleveland, Ohio this week.

The jersey had previously been listed on ebay with the seller hoping to get around $300,000 for it, little is known about what happened after that auction in May.

Now the shirt will be auctioned off on-line in an auction that will take place from August 6th to August 23rd.

It is expected to go for a very high price and many people feel that it will outsell the most expensive college football jersey in history - Paul Hornung's Notre Dame jersey which went for $27,000.
