As Radar reported, Simpson shocked the nation when he was acquitted of the murders of his ex-wife, Nichole Brown and her friend Ron Goldman in 1995.

Simpson again made headlines in 2006 after he announced his intention to publish the controversial book, providing a hypothetical account of Brown and Goldman's murder.

The plan created outrage from those sickened by the idea Simpson could possibly profit from the project, and the the plan was scrapped.

Simpson was then sentenced to 33 years in prison for armed robbery in 2007. That same year, a Florida bankruptcy court granted the book's rights to the Goldman family, who promptly changed the title to If I Did It:Confessions of the Killer.

In addition to Simpson's words, the book includes commentary from the Goldman family on their reasoning to go through with its publication.

According to, the auctioned book is labeled "Rare (one of only few known) controversial 'If I did It' by OJ Simpson — True First Edition, First Printing 2006."

Bidding on the book will begin in just weeks, with a minimum offer of $2,500 — and an expected sale of over $10,000.

Simpson's fate will be decided on July 20, when the Nevada Board of Parole will hold a hearing to discuss his release.
