NFL Auction, Appraisal Fair Set

One sports memorabilia company gets to run the show at the NFL Experience, hosting an appraisal fair and the first-ever Super Bowl auction.

Hunt Auctions sets up shop in Tampa beginning this weekend, as the NFL Experience offers a nod to sports memorabilia before the Super Bowl.

The company will conduct an appraisal fair at Raymond James Stadium January 24-25 and 29-30.

It’s an event similar to what the company has been running before its Louisville Slugger Museum auction and the sale the MLB All-Star Fan Fests.

The auction itself takes place Jan. 31 at 1 PM, the day before Super Bowl XLIII.

Among the nearly 300 items expected to be available in the sale are numerous vintage game-worn jerseys including a 1980s John Elway, a 1960s Jim Brown and a 1960s Gale Sayers. Several jerseys belonging to current players will also be sold including a La Dainian Tomlinson Chargers jersey and a New York Jets’ Brett Favre gamer.

A 1950s Norm Van Brocklin Los Angeles Rams helmet is also going under the hammer as is a 1960 Houston Oilers AFL Championship ring. The Hunt Auctions website has a complete list of items.
