Does the run on O.J. Simpson memorabilia begin now? The Hall of Fame running back was granted parole Thursday afternoon in Nevada after spending nine years in prison for armed robbery involving two sports memorabilia dealers in Las Vegas. Before that, he was acquitted in the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman in 1995. Not long after the new news on Thursday, one auction house had its own Simpson news.
Two of O.J. Simpson’s California driver’s licenses are going up for auction later this year, a California auction house announced hours before Simpson’s Nevada parole hearing was set to begin on Thursday. SCP Auctions spokesperson Terry Melia told USA TODAY Sports that the licenses were submitted for auction by a former Simpson bodyguard.
