Vintage Meets Modern: A Sneak Peek of Super Bowl LV Live Auction Items
The Super Bowl LV live auction will be held virtually on Saturday, February 6 at 11 a.m.
TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – If you’re looking for a Super Bowl souvenir, the NFL auction might have what you never thought you needed. You can bid on history, from championship rings to a soccer ball from the first Super Bowl.
All coins to be won in the Super Bowl LV Live Auction have been certified by the NFL and will be worth a lot of money.
Hunt Auctions out of Pennsylvania partners with NFL Auctions to host the highly anticipated Super Bowl Live Auction each year.
“We bring the best things right to the pitch for the fans,” said Dave Hunt of Hunt Auctions.
Hunt combines vintage items with modern pieces to give fans what they want. As for this year’s vintage collection, it focuses on Green Bay Packers legend Paul Hornung.
“This jersey worn by Hornung not only in Super Bowl I, he didn’t play in the game but he was there, but in the NFC Championship that year,” Hunt said, “You can see it, from all the different repair crews all over the jersey, which helps us match it up in the photo, it’s already an incredible piece at over $ 50,000 in auction.
If not the jersey, what about one of the soccer balls used in Super Bowl I?
“It’s a unique piece. You not only buy it as a kind of keepsake, but also the story behind it. Should be $ 20,000 to $ 40,000, ”Hunt said.
Regardless of your team, you might find something in the live auction catalog that you want to shell out some hard-earned money for.
“So that’s a jersey worn by Travis Kelce this season, signed, used by the game. Should be around $ 5,000 to $ 10,000,” Hunt said.
Remember, most of the money goes to NFL charities with hundreds of thousands of dollars raised overnight.
“There are literally dozens of in-game shirts used in the auction, including some Buccaneers, and these proceeds go to various NFL charities like Salute to Service.”
As for Hunt’s favorite piece in the Super Bowl LV live auction?
“This is a very difficult question that I am often asked. You know my favorite is the ability that we’re even capable of doing that and the NFL just did an amazing job, ”he said.
These and other pieces of NFL history could be yours on Saturday. The auction will take place live but not in person this year due to the pandemic. Online auctions will begin at 11 a.m. on Saturday.
