David Beckham of the LA Galaxy is pictured here after an exhibition match in Wellington, on December 1.
Fans of football superstar David Beckham are cashing in on his recent visit to New Zealand by trying to sell his food scraps and dirty dishes on the Internet.
Among the items put up for sale on New Zealand website Trade Me are a half eaten corn cob, a nearly empty bottle of Coca-Cola and a single French fry, which the seller said Beckham had dropped during a stroll around Wellington.
The chewed corn cob and soft drink came from a chicken restaurant where Beckham ate on Thursday night. The seller was also auctioning the plate and knife and fork he had used at the restaurant.
The seller vouches for the items' authenticity and suggests they are ideal for anyone "who actually cares about David Beckham."
The French fry attracted an initial bid of one dollar (75 US cents), rising to three dollars by late afternoon Wednesday.
Beckham was in the New Zealand capital for three days last week with his LA Galaxy football team to play an exhibition match against local team Wellington Phoenix.
He left on Sunday to rejoin wife Victoria as her reformed group The Spice Girls played a concert in Vancouver.
