It’s one of the greatest plays in the history of college basketball.
Christian Laettner’s iconic turnaround, buzzer-beater against Kentucky in the Elite Eight of the 1992 NCAA Tournament sent Duke to a 104-103 overtime win — and the Final Four — and earlier this week, the No. 32 jersey that Laettner wore during that famous contest was sold at an auction by Lelands.com.
Among the other auctions that ended on Lelands.com of some interest to college basketball fans: a 1940 Indiana Hoosiers National Championship ring, radio equipment, a score sheet and advertising sign from the 1966 championship game between Texas Western and Kentucky and a 1961 Cincinnati Bearcats National Championship ring that belonged to reserve center Fred Dierking.
Being a college basketball blogger, I don’t have the kind of paper required to get really cool college basketball memorabilia like this, but you might want to keep an eye on Lelands.com in the future if you are interested in acquiring some unique items from college basketball history.
