The undisputed NBA sneaker king, P.J. Tucker, has relinquished a few of the rarest pairs from his personal collection for a charitable effort with the Sixers Youth Foundation.
Today, the non-profit organization announced that it will be auctioning off seven pairs from Tucker’s collection starting today, with proceeds benefiting the local youth in the Philadelphia area.
The sneakers that are up for grabs include two PE colorways of the Nike Zoom GT Cut 2, a PE iteration of the Nike Zoom GT Run, an unreleased “Prada Floral Print” Nike Kobe 6 Protro, “Kentucky” LeBron 7 PE, the “Philly Cat” Nike Hyperdunk, and the “White Cement” Air Jordan 3. Each pair has been signed by Tucker as well.
“We are so grateful to partner with P.J. Tucker for the [third annual] Sixers Youth Foundation sneaker auction. P.J. truly represents what it means to be a 76er–using his platform and voice to give back to the communities where our fans live, work and play,” Marjorie Harris, the chair of the Sixers Youth Foundation, said. “P.J. jumped at the opportunity to participate, and his generosity underscores how this event continues to gain momentum and make a difference for our local youth each year.”
