In 1994, Rashaan Salaam ran for 2,055 yards and became the University of Colorado's lone Heisman Trophy winner because of it. In 2011, with the economy apparently taking a toll on his business of "marketing mixed martial arts around the world," Salaam has put the 20+ diamond ring he won for fleet-footsmanship up for auction.
The auction house said, via press release, that it could potentially draw bids of $15,000 to $25,000 before Aug. 9. Tonight, however, interest hasn't broken the $1,700 threshold. Which is disheartening, especially if Kerry Collins doesn't hear about the chance to claim what he probably thinks was rightfully his in the first place.
Even more disheartening, though, is the fact that when you go to the Nate D. Sanders Auctions website, the first thing you'll see are Ray Guy's three Super Bowl rings up for bidding.
