Bama's shattered BCS title trophy brings $105k at auction
[dropcap]S[/dropcap]omeone should keep an eye on the crystal footballs at Auburn, Florida, LSU and elsewhere.
Following Alabama’s spring game last year, Carleton Tinker, the father of Crimson Tide long snapper Carson Tinker, tripped on a rug and accidentally knocked over the display table showing off Bama’s 2011 title trophy. The Waterford crystal football, sculpted in Ireland and valued at $30,000, was shattered.
Tinker felt terrible afterwords, but he probably feels a bit better now.
Alabama officials placed the remaining pieces of the broken trophy into a glass dish and auctioned them off at the UA Celebrity Golf Tournament on Sunday.
Final bid? $105,000.
Proceeds from the golf tournament benefit Children’s Village, Inc. of Birmingham, Ala., a Christian-based group home for children placed in foster care by DHR.
