The Golden State Warriors brought back some special jerseys for the last regular season game at Oracle Arena last Sunday. Now, those throwback-style game-worn shirts are on the auction block to benefit the team’s community foundation.
The “We Believe” jerseys were a player-driven idea that paid homage to the team that won 16 of its last 21 games to earn a playoff spot 2007 following a 13-year drought. The Warriors then became just the third eighth seed in history to knock off a top seed when they dispatched the Dallas Mavericks. The Warriors wore the red, blue, gold and white jerseys from 2003-2010.
The jerseys from Sunday’s game, a 131-104 win over the L.A. Clippers, are up for bid via auctions.nba.com. The auctions will run through Thursday, May 2. Bidding for Steph Curry’s jersey had already topped $16,000 by late Wednesday afternoon.
The Warriors are playing their final season at Oracle, formerly known as the Oakland Alameda County Coliseum Arena, a building the Warriors permanently called home for 47 seasons, beginning with the 1971-72 campaign.
The Warriors Community Foundation has delivered over $10 million in impact since the foundation’s inception in 2012 to support education and youth development in the Bay Area.
