SCP Auctions is honored to feature the personal collection of the late William “Red” Holzman. His most valuable pieces of memorabilia are among the 36 lots well-represented in our 2019 Summer Premier Auction that runs until September 28. Check out some of the Holzman highlights!
He was the New York Knicks’ greatest basketball coach, leading them to their only two World Championships in 1970 and ’73. Red was just the second to reach the exclusive 500-Win Club and retired in 1982 with 696 career wins. Considered one of the best coaches ever to roam the sidelines, Holzman was voted to the elite Top 10 All-Time Coaches list as part of the NBA’s 50th Anniversary in 1996. His 613 wins as a Knick are the most in team history by a wide margin. A “613” banner is hung in the rafters at Madison Square Garden in Red’s honor, and in 1986 he was inducted into the Naismith Hall of Fame.
