NBA Auctioning Off Game-Worn Jerseys

Our friends in the NBA just sent along this little release that y’all may find worthwhile:

For the first time, fans of all 30 teams will have the chance to own game-worn jerseys of the starting five players on their team’s opening-night roster.  It will also mark the first time that NBA Revolution 30 jerseys, introduced across the League this season and featuring adidas’ newest technology, will be available for auction on NBA.com

Auctions will begin for the first three games that play on Oct. 26 and will run through Tuesday, Nov. 16. The league will auction the remaining teams’ jerseys on a rolling basis throughout the season. After the games are played, the jerseys will be authenticated and securely stored until they are delivered to the winners. To celebrate the Los Angeles Lakers’ 16th NBA championship, the league will auction every jersey from the team’s opening night roster. To place a bid, fans can log on to auctions.nba.com.

Bid away.

    Phew, I’d rather have a bench warmers Jersey.

    Urm, seeing how the league has an obvious problem of staph infection and MRSA, I don’t see how this is a good idea unless they clean and disinfect the jerseys, which would seem to defeat the purpose of “game-worn”

    will the jerseys be washed first? I’d like to bid on sasha’s jersey! I’ll start, $30?

    @don – if there is a picture of his new fiancee wearing it to “authenticate” it (and little else) then I will outbid you until I go bankrupt.
