From the archives: Spurs Nike Statement Edition Jersey Auction Comes to a Close
Originally posted February 24, 2020
The auctions for the Spurs first Nike Statement Edition jerseys that were worn by the Spurs recently closed on NBA Auctions. I had been waiting patiently for the Spurs jerseys to go on auction for some time as the auctions for the Statement Edition jersey for a number of other teams had already been posted and come to a close.
My patience paid off as I was the winning bidder on the Bryn Forbes jersey! Although Forbes may be struggling lately (although you could say that about pretty much the entire team), I could not pass up the opportunity to score a game worn jersey from the debut of the Nike Statement Edition and to add a piece of the #SummerofBryn to my Spurs collection.
Perhaps not surprising, Grandpa Juice himself, Manu Ginobili, had the highest bid at $5,420! In a way the winning bid, somewhat like the All-Star Game voting, is a reflection of the resurgent season Ginobili is having as a 40 year old.
The run down of the winning bids for each Spurs jersey is as follows (all prices in US dollars):
Manu Ginobili $5,420
Tony Parker $2,140
Patty Mills $1,550
Kawhi Leonard (game issued) $1,520
Danny Green $1,320
Dejuante Murray $1,220
LaMarcus Aldridge $1,020
Rudy Gay $620
Paul Gasol $610
Kyle Anderson $410
Joffrey Lauvergne $371
Bryn Forbes $360
Davis Bertans $330
Brandon Paul $320
Darrun Hilliard $290
Derrick White (game issued) $240
Matt Costello (game issue) $200
