Joel Embiid’s latest monster game put him in the discussion for NBA MVP. He scored 50 points in just 27 minutes in Wednesday night’s win over the Orlando Magic and added 12 rebounds and three blocks for good measure. Now one of his coolest game-worn jerseys earlier this season is up for grabs.

NBA Auctions offers the Embiid’s City Edition jersey worn in the 76ers’ 103-98 win over the Chicago Bulls on November 3. It was the first game the 76ers wore the new jerseys which have stripes that may evoke memories of the Spectrum in Philadelphia.

The navy blue jersey, a size 54 with an extra 6 inches in length, is registered in the NBA Authentication Program and MeiGray Game-Worn Jersey.

Bidding is due to continue until February 3.
