The Oklahoma City Thunder is auctioning off a pair of historical shoes.
Nick Collison’s game-worn shoes from the April 3 game against the San Antonio Spurs are up for bid as part of the Thunder Cares August Auction. You might ask: What’s so special about these particular shoes?
Well, for starters, they have NICK COLLISON’S BLOOD ON THEM.
A brief description from the bidding website:
“Oklahoma City Thunder forward/center Nick Collison wore these shoes during the April 3, 2014, Thunder home game against the San Antonio Spurs. During the game, Collison took a hit to the head, resulting in a cut that left several drops of blood on these shoes, which Collison later autographed.”
That’s right. The Thunder is auctioning off an autographed pair of sneakers from that Collison classic. And you might want to hurry – the highest bid was at $700 as of Tuesday night.
You can clearly see the specks of blood in the photos (photos via biddingforgood.com):
All proceeds from the online auction benefit the Thunder Cares Foundation to support the team’s community outreach efforts. Items are up for bid through Monday, Aug. 18., at 8 p.m.
