Another round of game-used items from the career of Hall of Fame running back Emmitt Smith are on the auction block.
Smith has partnered with Notable Live for a series of auctions throughout the 2021 NFL season in which he’s offering items from his own extensive collection including game-worn jerseys, shoes and other equipment, game balls, autographed pieces and awards. Smith was known to have saved virtually every notable item and game jersey from his career, which ran from 1990 through 2004. He was part of three Super Bowl winning teams during his 15 NFL seasons. He still holds the NFL’s all-time career rushing yards record at 18,355 and rushing touchdowns with 175.
The auctions are being conducted via eBay. Last month, a jersey he wore during the 2001 season sold for over $25,000.
Among the items up for bid now are the cleats, gloves and socks he wore in his last game as a member of the Dallas Cowboys on December 29, 2002. “Let me tell you – it wasn’t a great game for me,” he admits in the auction description. “I didn’t get any touchdowns and my rushing yards were way down, 13 yards on 18 carries to be exact.”
Despite the brutal honesty, bidding has already topped $2,200 and is expected to go significantly higher.
The highest bid so far is for Smith’s 17th career touchdown football from a 1991 game against the Cardinals at Texas Stadium.
In the auction listings, Smith offers to autograph some of the items while adding inscriptions for an additional fee.
A team signed 2000 Cowboys ball and an NFL Alumni MVP award from the 1999 season are among the other items up for bid through Tuesday night.
Winners will have the opportunity to join a live virtual event with Smith during the first game of the NFL season between the Cowboys and Buccaneers on Thursday night, September 9 via Notable Live.
