Leading collectibles marketplace Goldin announces its first-ever auction consisting exclusively of game-used memorabilia from some of the most iconic and legendary sports figures in the game. Available exclusively at Goldin, the carefully curated, one-of-a-kind collection features memorabilia and apparel from LeBron James, Cal Ripken Jr., Shoei Othani, Stephen Curry and many others. Bid, view and register for the auction at goldin.co.
The auction is headlined by items from rising star and NBA slam dunk champion Mac McClung including the Spalding basketball and his Rise Nitro Sneakers he wore when he won the All-Star Weekend Slam Dunk Contest on February 18 — arguably the most exciting dunk contest in years. The winning bidders for the McClung items will also receive a FaceTime with McClung himself and an Instagram follow. A portion of the proceeds of the sale of these items will be donated to ALZ Alzheimer’s association.
“Mac McClung is a star in the making who deserves to take center stage at our first-ever auction featuring only game-used items,” said Goldin Executive Chairman and Founder Ken Goldin. “We’re thrilled to be charged with these items from Mac that commemorate one of the most exciting dunk contest performances in history. Between Mac McClung’s shoes, LeBron’s jersey, Cal Ripken’s helmet and so much more, this auction is a monster that any sports fan will love.” Bid, view and register for the March 22, 2023 auction at goldin.co.
