MILWAUKEE — In an effort to change the lives of many children through proper education, NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has sold hundreds of items commemorating his basketball career.
Nearly 235 items, including four of his six NBA championship rings, were sold for $2,947,872.
Much of this money will benefit his Skyhook Foundation charity that helps children learn about science, technology, engineering and math.
The item that brought in the most money was his 1987 Los Angeles Lakers ring, at $398,937. The 1985 ring sold for $343,700, while the other two rings went for $245,500 each.
Abdul-Jabbar's Milwaukee Bucks' championship ring from 1971, the first ring he won in his career, was not in the auction.
