O.J. Simpson's 'If I Did It' auctioned for $250,000

The book went on the auction block this morning and payment was required in full within 48 hours of the sale.

An extremely rare copy of O.J. Simpson's book "If I Did It" can be yours for $250,000.

TMZ reported this morning that one of the last remaining copies of the book was being auctioned off on eBay and according to the listing, payment was required in full within 48 hours of the auction ending.

However, the link for the item is no longer available on eBay as of this afternoon.

Although the original release of the book was canceled shortly after it was released in November 2006 due to public criticism, 400,000 original copies were printed. The books were reportedly recalled to be destroyed. However, a small number survived. One copy is reportedly with the book's original publisher, News Corporation, and another one was sold for $65,000 on eBay in 2007. It looks like the one that went on sale this morning survived as well.

In the book, Simpson hypothetically describes the murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ronald Goldman. Simpson was acquitted in 1994 of the murders of Brown and Goldman. He is currently serving a 33-year sentence for kidnapping and armed robbery.
