Oscar Robertson Auctioning Off His MVP Trophy

NBA legend Oscar Robertson is auctioning off a bunch of his memorabilia, and the haul includes the MVP trophy that Robertson won in 1964. Oscar isn’t sentimental about any of it, to say the least. Per Fox Sports: “Former Boston star Bob Cousy sold his 1957 trophy at auction in 2003 for $51,673, and Philadelphia legend Julius Erving got $177,632 last year at auction for his 1981 award. Now, fellow Hall of Famer Oscar Robertson will be selling the 1964 trophy he won with the Cincinnati Royals. Robertson is going through SCP Auctions, the same company that sold the Cousy and Erving trophies. SCP president David Kohler predicts Robertson’s award should fetch about the same as Erving’s in the online auction that will run Wednesday through Dec. 1. ‘A lot of (sports stars) are selling a lot of items,’ Robertson said. ‘I don’t feel that I need to keep it, to be honest. I haven’t seen it for 40 years.
