The watch Jerry Yang won at the 2007 World Series of Poker main event has found its way to the online auction portal eBay.

In 2013, the Internal Revenue Service seized Yang’s bracelet, along with other jewelry.

Yang outlasted 6,358 players in the main event to take home $8.25 million.

The current bid for Yang’s watch is $1,500, though the seller said the retail price is more than $9,000. Bidding remains open until the 24th of July.

“I purchased this watch at an IRS seizure auction last year in Sacramento, California and have the paperwork that shows it was seized from Jerry Yang for non-payment of taxes and sold to me,” the seller wrote in the posting. “The watch retails by Corum for more than $9,000 and that is without the provenance of having been won during the World Series of Poker main event.”

In recent years, bracelets from T.J. Cloutier and Peter Eastgate have made appearances on the online auction site, though the latter’s was sold to benefit charity.

Unlike Yang and Cloutier, Eastgate decided to quit playing poker.
