The Golden State Warriors are auctioning their autographed, one-of-a-kind gold-themed warmup jerseys to benefit victims of the recent wildfires in northern California.
shooting shirts were worn before their opening night game against the Houston Rockets and later signed by the players. The shirts have gold trim in honor of the club’s 2017 NBA Championship and were worn when the players were warming up for the game with Houston and when they received their championship rings in a pre-game ceremony.
Shirts donned by Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson are among those being offered. The auction opened Wednesday morning.
Proceeds from the auction will be donated to support North Bay and California Fire relief efforts in collaboration with the Warriors Community Foundation through the Sonoma County Resilience Fund and the Napa Valley Community Fund.
Turner Sports and the NBA have also partnered to support an auction of official game worn jerseys from the four teams who played on Tuesday night to raise funding and awareness to benefit ongoing recovering efforts in areas affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria.
