Loaded Sports Auction Brings in $2.4 Million

Loaded Sports Auction Brings in $2.4 Million

Julius Erving and John Wooden highlighted an amazing group of sports items recently sold at Grey Flannel's "Summer Games" Auction. Erving's ABA game-used and autographed Virginia Squires 1972-73 jersey sold for an astounding $190,414. The high value is attributed to the fact that the jersey is a rare version that was only used by the team for one year. Equally impressive was $183,500 a navy and gold UCLA jacket brought in. It was worn for years by John Wooden during his coaching career.

Other items of note included a playoff game-used jersey from Wilt Chamberlain ($73,409), "Downtown Freddie" Brown's 1979 NBA Championship ring ($115,242), a leather-laced basketball from 1897 ($59,135), Steve Wright's 1965 Green Bay Packers Super Bowl I Championship ring ($73,409), and 1981 NBA Finals MVP Cedric “Cornbread" Maxwell's Boston Celtics World Championship ring ($55,152).

Sales totaled more than $2.4 million.

Further information regarding the auction as well as upcoming auctions can be found at the Grey Flannel Auctions website.
