CINCINNATI (FOX19) -

For the right price, a lucky Reds fan can get their hands on one of the beloved mustache statues that adorned Cincinnati during the 2015 MLB All-Star Game.

The mustache statue that was located in Eden Park will be up for auction through Nov. 16 with proceeds benefiting the Reds Community Fund. The opening bid starts at $4,500.

The statue was one of the 21 “‘Staches On Parade” placed at iconic locations in Greater Cincinnati and northern Kentucky. It’s adorned with unique All-Star Game logos and imagery and measures 8 feet wide, 2.5 feet high and weighs approximately 850 pounds.

The mustaches were removed from their public posts at the end of July and given to private donors. Two of the statues remained in permanent place at Crosley Terrace and the MLB Urban Youth Academy.

The Reds thanked SVI Themed Construction Solutions of Morton Grove, Illinois for donating this mustache statue.
