Iconic Christian Laettner jersey auctioned for $119,500
A jersey believed to have been worn by former Duke star Christian Laettner when he hit his famous shot in the 1992 NCAA tournament game between the Blue Devils and Kentucky was sold at auction for $119,500. ESPN’s Darren Rovell first reported the sale.
“That’s number two all-time (for a jersey sale) which is pretty amazing,” said Lelands.com founder and chairman Joshua Evans. “You know, you would think it would be Bill Russell. A common Christian Laettner jersey (from any other game) would be worth hundreds of dollars maybe a couple thousand.”
