Today Is The Final Day To Bid In Grey Flannel Auctions’ HOF Catalog

Please note that while we cannot predict when the auction will end, we assume that with a smaller amount of lots being auctioned off the bidding will end sooner than past auctions. If the auction continues past Midnight EST we reserve the right to close it at any time. If you truly have interest in winning a lot we encourage you to place your bids early and not wait out the clock. The sale may end earlier than you expect.

INITIAL BIDS REMINDER | Initial bids must be placed prior to 9:00 PM EST tonight if you wish to participate in the extended bidding portion of our auction. Once in Extended Bidding, bidding on each lot will be limited to only those bidders who have previously placed their initial bids on that specific lot. For ongoing lots after the close of initial bidding, the 20-minute rule will be applied. The 20-minute rule means the auction will not end until there are no bids for the entire auction for a period of 20 minutes. The entire auction will close simultaneously, not one lot at a time.

Auction Action by Paul Lucas of ESPN & Uni Watch

Thanks Paul! To view this post and other fine uniform related discussions head over to Uni-Watch.com

Our friends at Grey Flannel Auctions have another big auction underway. Here are some of the more interesting items:

Screen-shot-2013-08-27-at-11.14.16-AM• Oh baby, it just doesn’t get any better than this spectacular Minnesota Pipers warm-up top. Magnificent!

• I really like this all-star jersey. Vertical arching on top, negative arching on the bottom, and a nice scattering of stars — what’s not to like? (Here’s the full auction listing.)

• Love this old Ohio State warm-up top, especially the spectacular buckeye sleeve patch!

• Speaking of warm-up tops, dig this Indiana State design, signed by Larry Bird (full listing).

• More warm-ups: Who would design with a bagpiper on the front? That’s from the ABL’s old Cleveland Pipers (full listing).

• The Harlem Magicians were a Globetrotters-esque team founded by Marques Haynes. Check out their uniforms! And dig the uni number, too.

• I’ve written before about the All-American Redheads, a women’s barnstorming team. Here’s one of their gorgeous uniforms.

• I love how the ABA’s Utah Stars used a star-shaped motif for the NOBs on their shooting shirts.

• How great would it be if the Knicks went back to this warm-up design? A little surprising there are no stripes on the sleeve cuffs, though.

• We’re used to seeing Pete Maravich wearing a nickNOB. But at one point — okay, it was for a promotional campaign, but still — he went FNOB.

• Never seen such a big shawl collar like the one on this St. Louis Hawks warm-up. Be sure to click the thumbnail for the front view — bizarre, no?

• If you click-through the thumbnails on this Cincinnati Royals jersey, you’ll see that the memorial shoulder band (which was for team owner Thomas Wood) came to a point. I’m not sure why I like that so much, but I do indeed like it!
