Jeremy Lin Jersey from Win Against Lakers Up for Bid

Jeremy Lin Jersey from Win Against Lakers Up for Bid

Jeremy Lin Feb 10 Lakers 260x146 ImageAfter scoring a game-winning three-pointer versus the Toronto Raptors on Valentine's Day, the legend of Jeremy Lin continues to grow. An online charity auction has what is perhaps one of the most significant pieces of Lin memorabilia to date: the jersey he wore in his February 10th game versus Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers.

Hosted by CharityBuzz, the jersey is part of a high-end lot that also includes  four tickets to the February 22nd Knicks game against the Atlanta Hawks and a post-game meet-and-greet with the point guard. The jersey also comes autographed. Proceeds from the auction benefit the Garden of Dreams, a Madison Square Garden charity that supports kids facing serious life challenges.

Although Lin was getting attention by the time he played against the Lakers, it was after dropping a career high 38 points in the shadow of Bryant that made everyone really take notice. No matter what becomes of Lin, this jersey comes with lots of historical significance. Considering what some of his high-end cards have sold for in recent days, the current bid of $7,000 seems like a bargain. With several days left in bidding, the price should skyrocket, particularly if the auction gets some mainstream media attention. As it stands, the title and description put more emphasis on the meet-and-greet and tickets than the jersey. That is where the real value comes, at least from a memorabilia perspective.
