Holmes’ Game-Winning TD Gloves Sell for $72,000


$70,200. That’s the total that Super Bowl XLIII MVP Santonio Holmes’ gloves went for in an auction for charity. The gloves that sold were the ones that he used to catch the game-winning pass with :35 left in the teams 27-23 win.

The bidding doubled in the final hour of the auction, which ended Sunday. The money that the Reebok gloves sold for will go to the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America Inc.

Holmes’ 6-year-old son, Santonio III, has the blood disease. The former number one draft pick earned MVP honors by hauling in nine passes for 131 yards – including the game-clinching six-yard TD pass in which he deftly tapped both feet in the right corner of the endzone before falling out of bounds.
