The first item autographed by the NFL’s number one draft pick has sold and his high school football team will be getting the proceeds.
Kyler Murray signed an Arizona Cardinals helmet and added the inscription “Go Cards!” just after leaving the stage in Nashville last month. The helmet was sold through NFL Auctions on Sunday for $3,450.
Money raised through the auction will be given to the football program at Allen High School in Texas where Murray was a star recruit. It’s the second year the NFL opted to send proceeds from the signed draft day items back to the player’s high school and the second year all first round picks were at the draft and able to sign items representing their NFL team. Murray was named the 2014 Gatorade Football Player of the Year as a senior in high school and was 42-0 as a starter.
Twenty-four bids were entered for the helmet after it opened at $150 on April 25.
Murray and the other top draft picks signed numerous items on the night of the draft including footballs and prints. A Cardinals draft print signed by Murray went for $460.
