Denver Broncos superfan the Barrel Man has sold his Super Bowl XXXII barrel for $46,100.

The auction for the Denver Broncos memorabilia, autographed by the team after winning the Super Bowl against the Green Bay Packers, ended Tuesday afternoon on online auction site eBay. The starting bid for the item, which has been adorned by the Tim McKernan at football games, was at $9,999.

McKernan says the bidding didn't go as high as he thought it would, but he's happy with the result. He auctioned the barrel because he could no longer pay storage and insurance fees.

McKernan says he'll donate ten percent of the proceeds to the Jubilee House in Gunnison, an emergency shelter serving domestic violence and sexual assault victims.
