Gerry Carey, licensing and merchandising manager for the Games, said: "This is the best opportunity for Games fans and supporters to own an authentic piece of Games history.

"All official auction items are exclusive, limited edition and come complete with hologram and letter of authenticity.

"Bidding starts as low as £1 but we expect some items will be very popular and will go for considerably more."

Last week Waitrose revealed that sales of Tunnock's teacakes soared 62% after they appeared in the ceremony at Celtic Park last Wednesday.

Bids for the giant teacakes open at £1.
