Welcome to the 2014 NBA and MeiGray Group Game-Worn Authentication Program’s Jason Collins Game-Worn and Autographed Brooklyn Nets Jersey Auction.

 

The NBA and MeiGray Group Game-Worn Jersey Authentication Program is proud to offer fans and collectors across the globe the opportunity to own a piece of history … the jersey worn by #98 Jason Collins of the Brooklyn Nets throughout the Nets' 91-84 loss to the Boston Celtics on March 7, 2014 at TD Garden in Boston, MA.

 

Collins, who dressed for the game but did not play, autographed this jersey on the back #9 of his #98 after the game."3-7-14" is handwritten on the jock tag.

 

This black jersey, a size 3XL+4 inches of extra length, is registered into the NBA and MeiGray Game-Worn Jersey Authentication Program as number BKN00404.

 

All proceeds from the auction will benefit the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network (GLSEN) and the Matthew Shepard Foundation.

 

Collins became the first openly gay, active male athlete from one of the four major North American professional team sports on Feb. 23, after signing with his original team, the Nets.  Since he was added to the roster, Collins’ jersey rose to the No. 1 spot on the top-selling jersey list at NBAStore.com. Collins chose to wear the number “98” in honor of Matthew Shepard, a college student who was murdered in 1998 after being targeted for being openly gay.  

 

“I’m thrilled to work with the league to support two fantastic organizations, both of which work tirelessly to ensure LGBT youth get the resources and assistance they need to be successful in life,” Collins said.

 

The NBA has a long history of supporting the LGBT community including partnerships with GLSEN, GLAAD and Athlete Ally and was the recipient of the 2012 Commitment to Diversity & Inclusion Award at the GLSEN Respect Awards. In addition, Jason Collins received the 2013 Courage Award at the 10th annual GLSEN Respect Awards and Denver Nuggets star Kenneth Faried was awarded the 2012 J. Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award, in part because of his relationship to Athlete Ally and his work championing equality and bringing awareness to the importance of respect and inclusion.
