A Different Kind Of Auction: Own A Piece of Super Bowl History & Help Cure A Disease
We spend a lot of time writing about domain auctions.
This morning I wanted to let everyone know of a different kind of auction.
A charity auction ends later today, for THE pair of gloves worn by Santonio Holmes when he made the SUPER BOWL GAME WINNING CATCH, for the Pittsburgh Steelers in Superbowl XLIII, held in Tampa a couple of weeks ago.
These are the actual gloves he wore when he caught the pass to win the game.
The gloves are autographed by Santonio Holmes.
When I first heard about the auction I thought that the gloves would certainly sell in the six figures.
Record setting Sports Memorabilia, like home run setting record baseballs have regularly sold in the six figures.
After all, its arguably the best catch in Super Bowl history, in arguably the greatest Super Bowl game ever played, which give the Steelers an historic sixth NFL championship.
However, with about 19 hours to go, at the time of publication, the gloves have a high bid of just $21,600.
All proceeds of the auction go to the benefit of the Sickle Cell Disease Association.
So not only would you be getting a one of a kind collectors item but your money would be going to help cure a terrible disease.
The auction has a buy it now price of $1,000,000 but it seems that they buyer might get a great deal here.
Just for the record I’m a football fan but not a Steelers fan, who the item should ideally go to.
If any of you care to jump in and get the gloves, we wish you the best of luck.
