Julius Erving’s Personal Collection of Basketball Memorabilia Headed to Auction

Julius Erving did things that changed the way people viewed basketball during the course of his career. Although today's game is full of flash and athletic prowess, Erving, perhaps better known by the nickname Dr. J, brought some of the first glimpses of a new style of basketball to fans. Collectors have a chance to grab a piece of this history thanks to SCP Auctions this fall.

The full selection of Erving basketball memorabilia that will be sold in the auction has not yet been disclosed. The known quantities that will be available to the highest bidder come auction time include Erving's 1979 Game Worn All-Star Jersey, 1975-76 ABA MVP trophy and 1980-81 NBA MVP trophy, as well as a 1969-70 UMass Redmen Jersey worn by him during his freshmen season there.

The auction will also feature a variety of other game worn jerseys, warmup uniforms, trophies and awards from Erving's Hall of Fame career.

Julius Erving memorabilia is virtually always in high demand among basketball collectors. Earlier this year one of his autographed Virginia Squires ABA Game Worn Jerseys sold for a whopping $190,414.

Highlights of the Erving memorabilia to be sold at the auction will be on display at the SCP Auctions booth during the upcoming 2011 National Sports Collectors Convention from August 3rd through the 7th.
