Just like chestnuts roasting on an open fire and Jack Frost’s icy patterns on windowpanes, the release of Grey Flannel’s December catalog is a sure sign that the holiday season has arrived. This year, the Grey Flannel team will wrap up 2010 with a Dec. 8 Holiday Auction packed with top-notch memorabilia from across the sports spectrum. The most coveted prize in any professional sport is a championship ring. Championship jewelry in the December sale includes J.R. Redmond’s diamond-covered 2001 New England Patriots Super Bowl XXXVI player’s ring. Already a hero for the three passes he caught during the 2001 AFC East Divisional-round victory over the Raiders, Redmond further distinguished himself that year with a pivotal three-yard reception in the final minute of that year’s Super Bowl. Redmond’s catch gave New England a fresh set of downs and paved the way for the Adam Vinatieri field goal that won the Super bowl for New England. Redmond’s ring, with its original box, will open with a $10,000 bid. Bidding is now open in Grey Flannel’s Holiday Auction and will close on Dec. 8, 2010. All forms of absentee bids are being accepted, including by phone and online through Grey Flannel’s Web site at www.GreyFlannelAuctions.com. Printed catalogs are free to all registered bidders. For additional information, call 631-288-7800, ext. 223; or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
