A football signed by Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler went unsold at a charity auction last month.

Not a single person bid on the white autographed ball auctioned on behalf of the Anti-Cruelty Society, the Chicago Tribune reports. But an unnamed buyer ultimately purchased the ball this week for $100 as a gift for his Bears fan son.

Sports blogs are seizing on the unsold ball as a symbol of the struggling quarterback’s declining status, though the Tribune notes that most of the items at the auction were not sports related and the attendees weren’t much of a “football crowd.”
