At Indianapolis on the Cheap, we consider it a good day if we find ways to help you save a couple bucks on your dinner meal. We know that every little bit adds up, so we often find ourselves focusing on small discounts and freebies to bring to your attention.
But how many times do you find yourself in a position to be able to bid for a championship ring from the 1976 NCAA Basketball Tournament? Well, between now and the evening of December 5, you have that opportunity. Bob Knight, one of the most renowned basketball coaches of all time and former coach of the nearby Indiana University Hoosiers, is auctioning off much of the memorabilia he has collected over his most successful years. Up for grabs include valuable items like his rings from 1976, 1981, and 1987, as well as his Olympic Gold Medal from 1980.
Steiner Sports Memorabilia is in charge of the auction, and has an entire set labeled the Bob Knight Elite Collection. Other items available in that collection to bid for include Final Four sideline chairs, his National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame medal, a signed Adidas shoe worn during a game, and other valuable items. If you are a Cheapster who has been working to save money through those small deals we’ve been promoting and waiting for a big purchase to spend it all on, here’s your chance.
On a more serious note, however, Steiner Sports is a great site to consider if you are shopping for a really memorable Christmas gift for someone who is obsessed with sports. They feature auctions on more affordable items as well, like an autographed Aaron Rodgers football helmet ($359.99) or an autographed MLB baseball from Albert Pujols ($499.99).
