Furs that once belonged to former congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. are attracting more bids than his Bruce Lee and Michael Jackson memorabilia.

The U.S. Marshals service began an online auction Tuesday to sell off items Jackson bought with campaign funds. The proceeds will go toward repaying the $750,000 Jackson illegally spent.

It’s early — the auction runs through Sept. 26 — but there doesn’t appear to be much interest so far.

A ladies’ brown cashmere cape edged in brown mink, purchased in 2009, attracted 33 bids as of 12:30 p.m. ET, with the highest bid reaching $430. Another ladies’ cape — this one in red cashmere trimmed in dyed black mink — attracted 18 bids and a high of $615.
