If you ever wanted to snag a pair of P.J. Tucker’s one-of-a-kind kicks, here’s your chance.
The Houston Rockets forward and NBA Sneaker King teamed up eBay and other influential sneakerheads for the website’s ultimate All-Star Weekend Drop. Starting Feb. 16, the OG of the online sneaker-selling community began auctioning some of the most classic and exclusive grails known to man with prices under market value.
And when I say “grails,” I mean GRAILS.
Prominent listings include the OG 1985 Jordan 1 lineup and game-worn Jordan 13s signed by Michael Jordan himself. On top of that, there is a medley of items from the Supreme x Louis Vuittion collaboration, a game-worn Kobe Bryant jersey, and much more.
Tucker, of course, didn’t disappoint with his contribution. Out of his own collection, Tucker is auctioning the coveted Air Jordan 2 Retro Legend of Summer, a Kobe Bryant XI PE, the black Kith LeBron XV, and (my personal favorite) the Nike Air Fear of God F&F signed by Jerry Lorenzo. Only 100 pairs of the FOG F&F were made - a shoe so rare that it’s not even listed on other prominent sneaker reselling websites - so this might your only shot at getting a pair.
And if you’re not a hardcore sneaker enthusiast, there are some other fun items for Tucker and Rockets fans alike. Up for grabs is an autographed pair of Tucker’s newly acquired Player Exclusive Hyperdunk X Low, an autographed Tucker official NBA game jersey, and an NBA basketball signed by the entire Houston Rockets team - something I’m definitely bidding for.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit Project Fit America, a non-profit that works with schools to “create new opportunities for kids to be active, fit and healthy.”
Most of the items’ availability, including the team-signed ball, end Sunday afternoon, so get in on the bidding while you can.
