The Auburn Tigers' "Kick Six" touchdown which beat the then-#1 Alabama Crimson Tide will remain one of college football's greatest moments for decades to come.
One lucky Auburn graduate will have a piece of that glorious 2013 Iron Bowl moment to display, as the helmet that Chris Davis wore for his 109-yard touchdown return was sold at auction on Monday.
Per Zach Barnett of NBC's College Football Talk, "Davis’ helmet from Auburn’s 34-28 defeat of Alabama was sold at auction for $47,190 late Saturday night/early Sunday morning by New Jersey-based auction firm Goldin Auctions."
The $47,190 is believed to be the largest amount ever paid by a collector for a college football helmet. To put that price into perspective, a helmet said to have been worn by Archie Griffin during his Heisman campaigns in 1974 and 1975 sold for just $28,860 earlier this year
“We knew when we received this item on consignment it was something special and would be treasured by Auburn fans, alumni and college football collectors,” auction firm founder Ken Goldin said to ESPN.com. “This helmet from one of the most historic and notable plays in college football goes down as one of the highest priced pieces of collegiate sports memorabilia ever sold, and certainly the most valuable that has been auctioned from a player or event that occurred within the past 20 years.”
