Some of the rarest sports memorabilia and sneakers from the collection of long-tenured Nike exec Elliott Hill will be up for grabs this month via the “Hail Mary: The Collection of Elliott Hill” at Liveauctioneers.
Hill started with the Swoosh as an intern in 1988 and recently retired in 2020 as the brand’s president of consumer and marketplace, so it’s not surprising to see all the rare Nike items he has amassed throughout his career. The items in the auction include a handful of signed jerseys from the likes of LeBron James as well as signed balls, magazines, and sports equipment. On the sneakers front, a very rare player-exclusive iteration of the Nike Air Force 1 High from Hill’s alma mater, TCU, is also available alongside a Troy Aikman-signed Nike Air Veer Trainers, and more.
Bidding for the items in the “Hail Mary: The Collection of Elliott Hill” auction will begin on May 21, with proceeds benefitting the Candace Newland Holley Scholarship. Hill and his wife, Gina have offered to match up to $750,000 in donations. To bid on some of the rare items from the auction, click here.
