June 21, 2005


The University of Kansas athletics department will conduct its first online auction starting Friday, June 24 on kuathletics.com, department officials announced Tuesday.

Items up for the first auction will run seven days. Included in the first auction will be sections of the center scoreboard recently removed from Allen Fieldhouse, auxiliary scoreboards from the Fieldhouse, one basketball rim from the historic facility and jerseys worn by former football and men’s basketball student-athletes. New items for bid will be added throughout the summer.

“With Allen Fieldhouse getting a facelift for the upcoming year, this is a great way for Kansas fans to own a piece of history,” KU Assistant Athletic Director for Marketing Andrew Steinberg said.

Items and opening minimum bids will be placed on the site. Each item will be auctioned off for a period of time.
