A Dallas-area auction house sold off Tim Brown’s 1987 Heisman Trophy ring for nearly $25,000 on Thursday night. One small problem: Brown was not happy with it.
“They have nothing signed from me saying this was part of me selling my ring to anybody,” Brown told Robert Wilonsky of The Dallas Morning News. “Hopefully we’ll be able to get it resolved without going to court.”
The former Notre Dame star told Wilonsky that it’s a “long, convoluted story” as to who’s trying to sell the ring and how they wound up with it. Heritage also offered up the ring for auction in November 2010. Last night the ring was sold for a whopping $23,900.
This is the second time in a year that a Heisman Trophy ring has been up for auction. Rashaan Salaam’s 1994 ring sold for $10,835 last August. Wilonsky says that Brown’s ring is already going for more than that.
