Want to Own Pieces of Buckeye Basketball History?

Ohio State basketball legend Jerry Lucas wants to gather several hundred-thousand dollars in income by emptying out his closet and drawers. A couple of items you Buckeye fans might be interested it (courtesy of Grey Flannel Auctions): 

Yes, Lucas' national title ring, commemorating the only time the Buckeyes basketball squad has won "the big dance." It can be yours for – at the very least – $20,000!

If you're not willing to spend the big bucks, maybe you could scoop this up this vintage shooting shirt before Homage does: 

Overall, it's an amazing collection. A Buckeye basketball fan or a basketball fan, in general, it's worth checking out.

Hopefully the items will mean a lot more to whomever buys them than they allegedly do to Lucas. As he told the Middletown Journal, "Things don't mean a lot to me," Lucas said. "They never have. I have real great memories associated with them, but they're hard to see when they're in a closet."
