Chris Spielman continues to be a hero amidst the coronavirus pandemic.
The legendary Buckeye linebacker decided to auction off some of his own gear and memorabilia to raise money for those impacted by the COVID-19 crisis, and one particular item has already raised a hefty chunk of change.
Spielman sold his personal 1984 Big Ten championship ring this week with the auction closing at an eye-popping $12,000 – every cent of which will be donated to those affected by the coronavirus.
Just talked to the generous man who purchased the ring .. we made a deal : when both of us die .. His family will return the ring to my family! What u give will grow what keep u lose #GodsGifts— Chris Spielman (@chris_spielman) April 4, 2020
Spielman's goal is to raise $40,000 so that he's able to give away $1,000 for the next 40 weeks, and he's well on his way.
He's now selling an autographed, game-worn Detriot Lions jersey and pants set packaged with his 1994 Pro Bowl watch. With just over two days to go in the bidding, Spielman has already received a bid for $2,500.
