SCP Auctions April Auction to Include Lebron James Game-Worn Sneakers Honoring Victims Of Newtown, Ct Tragedy

SCP Auctions  is honored to have a very special pair of LeBron James’ game-worn sneakers as a part of their April auction, beginning Wednesday, April 10 at SCPAuctions.com. James marked the LeBron Flywire Nike shoes with “Newtown, CT” in several different places on them prior to the Miami Heat’s December 15, 2012 game vs. the Washington Wizards. The team took part in a moment of silence prior to the game and brought their own kids out on the floor as a show of support for victims in Newtown, CT. Proceeds from the sale will go to victims of the tragedy in Newtown, CT through the LeBron James Family Foundation.

As posted on his Instagram account at www.instagram.com/kingjames, today James added his signature to one shoe and a new inscription of “vs Wizards 12/15/12 Never forget!!” to the other shoe. Upper Deck Authenticated witnessed the signing and is transporting the shoes back to headquarters where they will be authenticated by having a serial-numbered hologram added to them and a corresponding certificate of authenticity will include a matching hologram. The shoes will be registered in Upper Deck Authenticated’s database and then make their way to SCP Auctions where they will go on the auction block next month.

In comments made in December, James said, “Basketball, this is nothing. These games are nothing compared to when you have a tragedy like that. It sucks that sometimes you need a tragedy to put things back in perspective, to appreciate what you have. But it does that to people. It’s unfortunate that you have to have something like that to understand what’s really important and some things that aren’t important at all. Family is the No. 1 important thing in life.”

Bidding will be open to registered bidders on Wednesday, April 10 and conclude on Saturday, April 27. The auction will be conducted online at SCPAuctions.com. The offering will also include prominent items from NBA great John Havlicek and MLB All-Stars Steve Garvey, Rollie Fingers and Bret Saberhagen.
