Toronto former Mayor Rob Ford is auctioning off several items on eBay, including the NFL-logo necktie he wore on Nov. 5, 2013, the day he admitted to smoking crack cocaine.

Ford, who's now in the city council, is also auctioning off a pair of print pants and a "Keep Calm and Carry On" framed poster. He will donate 10 percent of the proceedings to cancer research, the Toronto Sun reports. Ford himself was diagnosed with cancer in 2014.

As of Thursday afternoon, the bid for Ford's necktie was over 3,900 Canadian dollars (about $3,100), while the bid for his print pants was $CA480. The poster was selling for $CA310. The auctions end Wednesday.
