Banksy's reimagining of Paris Hilton's debut album has hit the auction block. The online sale by Tate Ward ends today, October 14, and among those looking to land the artwork is none other than Hilton herself.

In 2006, Banksy doctored hundreds of copies of Hilton's first album, Paris. The sticker on the cover made mention of tracks "Why Am I Famous?," "What Have I Done?," and "What Am I For?," as Banksy tapped DJ Danger Mouse to remix the songs.

The CDs became highly coveted after Banksy planted them in various record stores in the UK. The Paris Hilton CD that is up for auction is one of 500 copies in circulation, and it is estimated to sell for upwards of £6,000 (approximately $7,827).

"Banksy is an iconic artist and I thought it was really cool that he would take that time to go and get 500 of my albums and do that to them," Paris Hilton said in a recent interview with Bustle. "I've actually been trying to buy one. I'm trying to wait for another one [to become available] because they're very limited edition. But I thought it was awesome that he did that."

Anyone interested in securing a copy of Banksy's Paris Hilton CD can try to outbid Hilton today through Tate Ward.
