Every summer, collectors from around the world convene at the National Sports Collectors Convention to buy, sell and admire the largest collection of sports memorabilia under one roof. For the third consecutive year, Goldin Auctions will host the event’s official live auction this year in Chicago with 90 lots concluding on July 27. A corresponding 1,835-lot online auction at www.GoldinAuctions.com will close on August 5. Bidding for both events begins on Monday, July 3.
Lot #54 – 2002 Aaron Rodgers Game Used, Signed & Inscribed Butte Junior College Road Jersey – Before he made his mark at the University of California, Rodgers played one season at Butte Community College in Northern California. This Butte Roadrunners white jersey was worn by Rodgers during that season. The Nike tag is sewn on the bottom front left tail and Rodgers signed his name on the upper left chest and inscribed “BC Pride!” Shows evidence of solid use with numerous marks and abrasions. Comes with a LOA from Butte College AD Craig Rigsbee, authenticating the jersey’s game use and Rodgers’ signature.
Lot #55 – Tom Brady’s Personal Super Bowl XXXIX Patriots Offense Handwritten Notes – This handwritten note sheet recounts the Patriots 24-21 victory over the Eagles in Super Bowl XXXIX. Brady wrote down the result of each offensive play the Patriots ran during their 12 drives (not including final kneel-down). Each play is described in three columns: down and distance; the play; and the Eagles defensive front. Brady wrote his notes on this sheet in blue pen. At the top of the sheet, he wrote the date, “Feb. 2005”, and his opponent, “Eagles”, in blue marker. There appears to be a small blood stain on the right side of the page, on both the front and back sides. The handwriting has been authenticated by JSA.
