(Written by Sports Collectors Daily) – He couldn’t resist a little swipe at sports memorabilia collectors but Bob Knight is going to take advantage of their appetite for goods.  Knight is consigning dozens of items from his Hall of Fame coaching career to Steiner Sports to pay for the education of his grandchildren.

A conversation with fellow Hall of Famer and Ohio native John Havlicek led the former Army, Indiana and Texas Tech coach and current ESPN commentator to make the decision to sell his championship rings and other memorabilia.  Both agreed that the money could be useful.   The items from the Knight collection are being filtered into Steiner’s current auction that also includes Don Larsen’s 1956 perfect game uniform.  Read full story on Sports Collectors Daily here.
