Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s Skyhook Foundation Benefits Via Goldin Auctions Winter Auction

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was my favorite player before Magic Johnson, now it’s LeBron James and Keven Durant. Who is next to carry on the legacy? It might indeed be one of the Skyhook Foundation kids that will benefit in the near future from Kareem’s decision to sell his memorabilia consisting of four NBA Championship rings, All-Star rings, MVP trophies and more, for their STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) program. Kids of Kareem’s community benefit from the cause by the auction’s ability to leverage his great legacy within the game to help fund Abdul-Jabbar’s Foundation. Jabbar’s 247-lot netted nearly $3 million of the $6 million in sales at the record setting GOLDIN AUCTIONS 2019 WINTER AUCTION...
