Alabama broken national championship trophy supposedly sold for $105k in auction
Just how passionate and crazy are Alabama fans about their football team? Crazy enough to reportedly throw six figures at a broken trophy.
According to TideSports.com reporter Cecil Hunt, a broken 2011 BCS National Championship trophy was sold for $105,000 at an Alabama Celebrity Golf Tournament on Sunday.
Alabama earned the trophy by going 12-1 during the 2011 season and beating LSU in the BCS title game. The trophy, which costs $30,000, was broken in April 2012 when the father of former Alabama player Carson Tinker tripped on a rug and knocked it over. Tinker’s father must not feel too badly about it now that the trophy brought in thousands. In this case, you break it, somebody else buys it. For a lot of money.
