It is now at $1125. I would love to know who the idiot was who put the low bid of $300 minimum and could have had it for $500 with buy it now. I clicked on it as I would easily pay $500 for it. That thing is going to go much higher I believe.

The History Colorado museum has one of the barrels and a pretty nice tribute to Tim. Worth a visit just for that

Yep, I remember a Wheaties box from one of the 80's SB runs used to be there as well. That is a pretty good local history museum. Haven't been there in a while but only because I am in IL.

Denver should buy it, make a Barrel man statue and hang it up on it.

What an incredible waste of money. A lot of stupid folks though. $2,000 for that? Go and make your own for like 10.

Did he wear the one for sale? The additional pictures they show have the Broncos logo positioned higher on the barrel. (In two different positions) The ad says that the one for sale is "One of three", but did he make three with the current logo? He had some with the old logo, right? How many total through the years?

- just playing the role of "The Skeptic".

It doesn't look like the ones in the pics that he's wearing. The bronco head is nowhere near the same.
