The Buffalo Sabres today announced that they will hold an online auction of game-worn away jerseys and old locker room memorabilia. The proceeds from the auction will benefit the Buffalo Sabres Foundation.
The white road jerseys, worn at the end of the 2010-11 regular season and playoffs, come with a certificate of authenticity. Items from the old locker room include locker name plates, stick rack signs, the Sabres logo from the locker room door and the “reason for existence” sign commemorating Terry Pegula’s quote from his first press conference as owner of the Buffalo Sabres.CLICK HERE TO BID NOW!
Fans can place a bid for the items from 5 p.m. on Oct. 14 until 9 p.m. on Oct. 23 by registering with the NHL Auction website, which can be found within the “Shop” section of Sabres.com.
Each item up for auction will contain an ID code that verifies the item’s authenticity by Collector’s Proof. Auction winners will be able to “claim” ownership at www.collectorsproof.com to preserve the ownership chain for their item from the Buffalo Sabres. The CollectorsProof.com community uses a registry of items listing their past and current owners to support authenticity. Collectors appreciate this enhanced authenticity and enjoy sharing their collections through their own online galleries. Sports teams benefit by enabling any fan with a web-enabled device to avoid buying fake memorabilia.
Headquartered in Buffalo, New York, CollectorsProof.com was formally launched in 2010 and is enjoying rapid growth domestically and internationally among authenticity-focused, ethical dealers and collectors of memorabilia.
