Lot 893: Bill Russell's Personal Golf Bag and Clubs
Number Of Bids:
Auction Date:1/10/2014 9:00 PM EST
No one player has ever won more world championships in American team sports as Bill Russell did with the Boston Celtics between 1956-69. The anchor of the C's dynasty, Russell was a fearsome force in the paint, helping him win five MVP awards en route to 11 titles. When he wasn't blocking shots, the Hall of Fame center loved to relax on the links, and used this very expensive leather bag to house his clubs. The bag exhibits the Phoenix Open logo embroidered along with "WFR" for William F. Russell (the F. stands for Felton). Inside is Russell's set of Taylor Made clubs that show nice use. The bag comes with a tag with Russell's name on it and is also signed in 8/10 silver. He even added the notation: "Personal Use." Includes a hand-signed LOA from Russell.
