After the Cincinnati Bengals won the AFC Championship Sunday afternoon, Joe Burrow got a message from rapper Kid Cudi. He asked the quarterback if he could have his jersey from the win, Burrow sent it right away, and Cudi tweeted a picture of the jersey Friday afternoon.

Kid Cudi added that he will be wearing the jersey at the Super Bowl, then framing it.
The jersey, signed with “Ohio Love” and covered in grass stains, is worth $100,000. This estimate is according to Ken Goldin, founder and executive chairman of Goldin Auctions.
Sports business reporter Darren Rovell tweeted Goldin’s estimate Friday afternoon.

He also believes that the jersey will be worth even more if the Bengals win the Super Bowl.
Goldin Auctions is a top market for sports and entertainment collectibles, so there’s a good chance that Goldin knows what he’s talking about. Typically when players perform well, their merchandise and collectibles go up in value.
Obviously, Cudi is a huge fan of Burrow, but he isn’t the only one fangirling over the interaction.
Burrow said this of Kid Cudi, quote courtesy of Bleacher Report.
“One of my idols growing up…I listen to strictly Kid Cudi pregame.”
There’s no doubt that Burrow will be listening to Kid Cudi before the biggest game on the biggest stage. The Bengals will face the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LVI Sunday, February 13.
