During his presidency, former president Barack Obama was known to be an avid sports fan. As many basketball fans and casual bracket watchers did every March, the first Black president filled out his tournament bracket that showed the teams he predicted would win each round and ultimately, the overall winner. Now, one of those brackets is up for auction.

Heritage Auctions has placed a notice on its website that the NCAA Tournament bracket that Obama filled out in 2013 has been posted up for auction. The auction will end at the end of this month on Mar. 25. The whiteboard that the predictions are written on is expected to fetch $20,000 according to the auction house. The listing also states that the actual video that captured him writing on the board shows evidence of the match.

The listing is as follows:

2013 NCAA Basketball Tournament Bracket Filled Out & Signed by President Barack Obama with Video Match. The forty-fourth President of the United States was the biggest hoops fan ever to occupy the White House, and he made an annual tradition of posting his March Madness bracket for the public every year, a tradition he maintains to this date. This is Obama’s first bracket after his reelection in November 2012, and if you Google “Obama 2013 bracket” you’ll find video of the former POTUS making all of his picks for the last thirty-one games.”

The auction house also states that the whiteboard is “framed behind plexiglass to ensure it isn’t erased.” The board, which measures 36″x63″ was originally purchased at an auction where the proceeds benefitted a charity. The owner of this item is the one responsible for this whiteboard being put up for this auction.

The item does have a verified large signature from the former president himself, which has been graded as a perfect 10/10.

Obama’s bracket was always widely anticipated and scrutinized when he released it every year for the annual NCAA Basketball Playoffs that was dubbed March Madness.
