DENVER — An icon of perhaps the Denver Broncos most iconic fan is for sale on eBay.

The barrel worn by Tim McKernan during the 2000-01 season was listed for $1,150 at noon on Friday.

McKernan was known to Broncos fans as “The Barrel Man.” He went to nearly every home game for close to 30 years wearing nothing but the barrel, a cowboy hat and boots — no matter the weather.

According to the eBay post, the barrel comes with a letter of authenticity from McKernan’s wife, Becky.

“What a wonderful way to own a one-of-a-kind piece of Broncos History in your home,” the description reads.

Becky McKernan has three barrels her husband wore. According to the post, “this was the first year of both Invesco Field and the new logo uniforms, so Tim had some new ones made with the updated logo…the Barrel for auction was one of those.”

Tim McKernan was among the first class inducted into the Hall of Fans at the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He died in 2009 at the age of 69.
