TRENTON, N.J., Nov. 22 (UPI) -- New Jersey first lady Mary Pat Christie said she may consider putting her husband's famous storm fleece up for auction to benefit Hurricane Sandy victims.

Christie, who chairs the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund, said she was offered $1,000 for the fleece, which became a signature clothing item for her husband, Gov. Chris Christie, during Hurricane Sandy, The (Newark) Star-Ledger reported Thursday.

The first lady said she turned down the offer.

"I'd have to get a lot more than $1,000 for it," she said.

Christie said the fleece is not currently up for auction.

"But I may have to consider it," she said.
