FLAT-OUT EXCITEMENT.
A RARE OPPORTUNITY IS

BOB KNIGHT IS SELLING SOME OF
HIS PERSONAL MEMORABILIA TO THE
HIGHEST BIDDER, AND YOU CAN BE A
BUYER.
FOR COLLECTORS IT IS A CHANCE OF
A LIFETIME.
AND IT COMES STRAIGHT FROM
THE COACH HIMSELF, WHICH MAKES
THE ITEMS EVEN MORE TANTALIZING.
YOU CAN GET INTO THE GAME BY
JOINING AN ONLINE AUCTION.
A LOCAL COLLECTOR SAYS BEFORE IT
IS ALL OVER, THE PRICES WILL
SHOOT UP.
WE HAVE THE WAFORD FOR THE
WIN.
Reporter: KNIGHT'S
MEMORABILIA IS A BIG DRAW LOVE
HIM OR HATE HIM.
WHEN YOU GET TO THE STUFF
FROM BOB KNIGHT HIMSELF THERE IS
NOTHING GREATER.
Reporter: MOMENTS MARKED BY
THESE MOMENTS.
THREE ALL OF HIS NCAA
CHAMPIONSHIP RINGS, INCLUDING
THE UNDEFEATED SEASON.
THE 1981 AND '87 CHAMPIONSHIP
RINGS, EACH HAS HIS NAME ON IT.
HIS HALL OF FAME RING.
THE RINGS ESPECIALLY WILL BE
A BIG ONE.
YEAH, IT'S VERY UNIQUE.
Reporter: RIGHT NOW EACH ITEM
HAS ONE BID OF $5,000.
IT WILL COST YOU $2,500 TO
INCREASE IT.
THESE ARE THE MOMENTS.
IT BRINGS A LOT OF THE EMOTIONS
JUST TALKING ABOUT IT.
Reporter: EMOTIONAL FOR
COLLECTORS BUT NOT SO MUCH FOR
KNIGHT.
HE WAS TALKING WITH HIS FRIEND
AND FORMER BOSS ENCELTIC WHEN
THE IDEA CAME UP.
SAID KNIGHT AS WE TALKED WE
DECIDED THE MONEY COULD BE VERY
USEFUL TO PUT OUR GRANDCHILDREN
THROUGH COLLEGE.
I DON'T PUT ANYTHING UP IN THE
HOUSE, AND I DON'T EVEN WEAR
RINGS.
ITEMS WILL BE AVAILABLE OVER THE
NEXT COUPLE OF MONTHS.
THE AUCTION ENDS ON
DECEMBER 5TH, SO YOU HAVE TIME
TO BID.
AP ASKED THE COACH IF THERE WAS
ANY MEMORABILIA IN HIS
COLLECTION THAT WOULDN'T MAKE
THE AUCTION.
HE SAID THE ITEMS TED WILLIAMS
GAVE HIM, HE IS KEEPING THOSE.

WHAT WOULD YOU BID ON?
I WOULD LIKE THAT 1976

THING IS GOING TO BE REALLY
WORTH A MINT.
