NFL AUCTION, the official auction site of the National Football League and the only place to bid on guaranteed and authentic signed, game-used items and unique NFL experiences, is introducing a new and improved look, functionalities and a charity auction in celebration of the 2013 NFL Draft. 

The new NFL Auction features a cleaner navigation, which makes viewing and bidding on items easier.  New for the 2013 season, Buy It Now and Group Buy (fixed price purchasing) features will be incorporated into the site. Fans will also be able to bid on the unique items on NFL Auction from their mobile devices and via Facebook.

The re-launch of NFL Auction will kick off a special collaboration between St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and NFL PLAY 60, the NFL’s campaign for an active and healthy generation. NFL PLAY 60 is the new “Official Champion of Play” at St. Jude, the global leader in finding cures and saving children with cancer and other deadly diseases.

Items signed by many of the 2013 Draft prospects, including a Kansas City Chiefs No. 1 overall selection T ERIC FISHER-signed football, are featured on the NFL Auction home page. The funds raised from the auction will support the needs of the St. Jude Child Life department, giving these kids the chance to play and be active.  To kick off the collaboration, Markell Gregoire, a child from St. Jude announced a pick during Round One of the Draft last night.
