Legendary NBA player, Bill Russell, is auctioning off some of his personal collection that include his Celtics championship rings, trophies, and more. Proceeds are going to a wonderful cause, too.  The items are currently on display at the National for you to see this week!

Just Collect arrived at The National and the first display we saw is a sign of good things to come! Bill Russell has his personal items on display that we were able to get a look at, and you can as well!


is offering Russell's personal items in an auction coming this Fall.  The proceeds of the sales will help Russell's charity, MENTOR, to help in mentoring our youth. Among the items being auctioned off are:


  • 1964-65 Bill Russell Boston Celtics NBA Most Valuable Player Award
  • Bill Russell Boston Celtics Professional Model Warm Up Jacket c.1960s
  • 1964 Bill Russell U.S. State Department NBA All-Star Team Professional Model Jersey
  • Bill Russell 1969 Boston Celtics NBA Championship Ring

You can see the items yourself, in-person!  Some of the collectables are on display here at the National.  Our owner, Leighton, took these pictures when he saw the cases!  What stands out is Russell's Olympic Gold Medal from 1956; AMAZING to see as we are underway in Tokyo for the games now!










If you're here for the show and checking out these cool Russell items, come on over to the Just Collect booth #518!  We are BUYING all week!



Just Collect is always buying vintage sports and non-sports cards from 1879 to 1979 as well as select modern cards.  We are always interested in buying Bill Russell rookie cards, too! We'd be happy to look at your 1957 Topps basketball cards!

If you have a collection that you are considering selling, contact me today to discuss or get our industry-leading purchase offer. If you have a collection that you want appraised, please contact us and I would be happy to discuss your collection and help you understand the real cash value of your collection in the current marketplace. Check out the Just Collect buy list blog here


I've run into a wide range of people and collections over the last 25 years. Although Just Collect is known for buying vintage sports cards and especially vintage baseball cards, I am also extremely interested in buying non-sports cards, too!  

Every collection and every collector is different and I treat EVERY collection with the respect and attention that we show for our own collections. I understand that many have put their heart and souls into building their collections. So when you're ready to sell, understand the feelings that you're going through and will work with you to help you reach a decision that is a WIN/WIN, because if you're not happy, I'm not happy.


Whether you have complete vintage sets, single cards of players like Mickey Mantle or Michael Jordan, or even cards of select modern stars, I'd love to hear from you!  You can reach out any time!
