Remember last week's story that Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy left a waiter a measly $0.20 tip on his $61.56 bill at local Burger Joint PYT?

Well the receipt showing the tip and McCoy's signature has since found its way onto ebay from a 'good friend' of PYT owner Tommy Up - and its current bid stands at a monstrous $99,900!

Money going to PYT Staff

The sellers description on the ebay page reads:

"The item up for Auction is the controversial $0.20 Receipt for Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean "Shady" McCoy's meal at Philadelphia Restaurant, PYT. The aforementioned receipt has caused quite the media buzz amongst social media/news networks/celebrities along with many others. Not only do you get to keep a memento of weird current events/social media history but you also get an autograph from incredibly talented Philadelphia Eagles running back, LeSean McCoy!!!"

There has so far been 142 bids from 45 different bidders and with four more days to go until the item expires, we can expect the receipt to surpass the $100,000 mark.

It is believed that the money raised will be used as 'the largest tip possible to all PYT employees for their hard work and dedication.'

Disrespectful Service 

McCoy has since had his say and said that he left the $0.20 tip to make a point:

"The 20-cent tip was kind of a statement. I didn't do anything wrong and if I had to do it again, I'd do it the same way."

He added: "In any restaurant I go around in Philadelphia, I tip very well. I'm very respectful. You can't be disrespectful and just expect somebody to tip you. I don't care who the person is. That's why I left my card, so they could see my name. Simple as that."

Nevertheless, tip-gate - as it's being dubbed - doesn't seem to have affected McCoy. He rushed for 79-yards and a touchdown as the Eagles, with the help of a red-hot Darren Sproles upset the Indianapolis Colts 30-27 in last night's Monday Night Football at Lucas Oil Stadium.

The Eagles are 2-0 going into a week three match up against NFC East rivals Washington Redskins.
