TV Academy auction: How much would you bid on Matt Bomer's hopefully sweaty chapeau?

I’ve been keeping an eye on the TV Academy Foundation’s Emmy Auction in one of my 37 open tabs, and am sad to report that my chances of scrounging up $721 or more in order to win Matt Bomer’s (autographed!) signature fedora from White Collar by Friday are looking grim. This was going to be Mandi Bierly’s Labor Day gift. Now I’ll have to give her, like, a compliment over IM or something. Awful.

The auction — featuring soap opera set tours, late-night talk show tickets (Conan and Leno’s bids currently outrank Fallon’s, but at $300 Jon Stewart trumps them all), the oversize tennis ball that Dr. House often fondles at his desk while pondering bizarre medical cases and also maybe other things he’d like to do to that tennis ball, and “unique handcuff earrings” from Rizzoli and Isles that Liz Lemon would probably die for — has been going on since Monday. The most expensive item by far: Two tickets to the Sept. 18 Emmys, complete with HBO party passes and car service. $2,500 so far. Ask your mom!

Bidding ends Friday at 4 p.m. ET; all auction proceeds will support the educational and archival programs of the TV Academy.

    If he actually wore it and it has his DNA on it I would pay $1 Million and clone him just for me
