The Jersey Auction

The jersey auction  - the jersey auction is without a doubt the bread and butter auction for sports teams.  Below are a few of our favorite creative ideas:

  • The co-team jersey – Memphis Redbirds/Memphis Grizzlies – Grit and Grind night.  $20,000 raised.
  • Jersey off their back night – the jersey auction that started it all.  Let’s enhance the experience a little more… we love what the Odessa Jackalopes do for their ‘off their backs’ jersey auction.  After the game, winning bidders get to take a picture with the player on the ice as well as get to skate around for an hour after the game.
  • The ‘holiday’ theme – St. Patrick’s Day, Fourth of July, Santa Claus, Cinco De Mayo Cerveza, Valentine’s Day.
  • Throwback night – teams are always changing their uniforms.  I for one LOVE, when my Dallas Stars lace up in old Minnesota North Stars gear.  Throw-it back to the good 'ol days and give fans a blast from the past!

A few more ideas:  retro night, Cancer awareness (pink jerseys), military appreciation night (camo jerseys).
