Someone Paid $105K For Broken Alabama BCS Trophy; Cam Newton BCS Pants Value Rises
The big news out of Alabama this weekend was that the shattered BCS trophy that was famously broken by a Bama long snapper’s father, was auctioned for $105,000.
Alabama auctions off the broken 2011 BCS Champonship Trophy at its UA Celebrity Golf Tournament on Sunday. It brought a reported $105,000.
The original value of the crystal was $30,000. Do the math.
Of course there’s collectible value here. It’s the crystal that Nick Saban hoisted after the Tide dominated LSU 21-0 in New Orleans. There aren’t many of those on the collectible market.
This has me thinking.
How much could I now get for the Cam Newton BCS pants that I purchased for $1,525? Those pants were bought straight from Auburn University and still have stains from the sprayed fake grass. If a broken crystal is worth $105k, I’m thinking the pants have to be worth at least $15k to an Auburn fan. The Tigers aren’t selling their BCS trophy. I have no idea where Cam’s jersey is. However, I know where Cam’s pants are.
Bids now start at $15k.
As a bonus, the pants were worn by Playmate Jaime Edmondson. Do the math.
