Notorious sells. And former NFL and New England Patriots Star Aaron Hernandez in no exception.

Aaron Hernandez - New England Patriots

Football jerseys of the former tight end have soared in value on eBay after he was charged with murder last week, The Boston Globe reported. According to the paper, John Lamothe of Florida put his Hernandez No. 81 jersey on eBay, hoping it would fetch $15 or so. It sold for $289.

Other eBay auctions that were still open on Monday afternoon showed users bidding in the high $100s and low $200s for Hernandez jerseys.

The demand for Hernandez’s football cards are also spiking in some cases on eBay, with signed ones receiving double-digit bids.

“The rise in memorabilia value regarding infamy is short-term,” Joshua Evans, chairman of sports auction house Lelands, told The Huffington Post. “The best example is O.J. [Simpson], whose stuff came down as quick as it rose.”
