Ipswich Town is one of the first football clubs in the UK to regularly auction off pieces of memorabilia on the site.
Other lots put up by the cash-strapped club include a one-off signed Vemund Brekke-Skard shirt and signed pictures of former players Marcus Stewart and Martijn Reuser.
Mr Clements said the market for football-related items was popular, with both traditional collectors and fans of the individual clubs pursuing them.
He added: “Clubs are beginning to take the opportunity to sell their stuff on the website, but Ipswich along with Bury and Oxford United have grasped the chance from the start.”
