The bidding will soon end for the tie that Rob Ford wore on the day he first admitted to smoking crack cocaine.

The city's former mayor and current Ward 2 councillor has been selling off some of his belongings on eBay.

His crack-confession necktie went up for sale on the auction website a week ago. The bidding on the item was scheduled to close just after 5 p.m. ET on Wednesday.

As of the mid-afternoon on Wednesday, the top bid for the tie was listed at just over $16,000.

Ford is also selling a coat he wore as a football coach, several sports jerseys and a familiar-looking sweatshirt. But the bidding for these items has not been close to bids placed on the tie.
