Former Indiana University basketball coach and current ESPN analyst Bob Knight earlier this month put a good amount of his memorabilia up for auction. Coach Knight is auctioning dozens of items from his Hall of Fame career, items include Championship Rings, his famous sweaters, ties, hats, and even a Unopen Guitar Hero that he got when he filmed the commercial for it. The auction will end on December 5th has been listed with Steiner Auctions. Recently WRTV in Indianapolis sent sports reporter Brad Brown to New York to get an exclusive look at Coach Knight’s collection.

2012 Topps Chrome has hit the retail outlets, plenty of retail boxes were there but I only grabbed two, three packs out of a unsearched box, and one rak-pack. Here’s the totals from the break.

(1) Black Border Refractor Michael Egnew RC 123/299

(2) Blue Border Refractor Brock Osweiler 135/199, Ndamukong Suh 35/199

(1) Purple Border Refractor Vick Ballard 80/499

(3) 1984 Rookie’s Ronnie Hilman, TJ Graham, Michael Floyd

(5) Refractors Wes Welker, Fletcher Cox, Devon Wylie, LeGarrette Blount, Christian Ponder

(1) Rookie Reprint Aaron Rodgers

(3) 1957 Topps Rookies Kendall Wright, Coby Fleener, Andrew Luck

(2) Tallboys Ronnie Hillman, Coby Fleener (On the back of both cards are the words “The signing of all Topps autograph cards is witnessed by a Topps representative to guarantee authenticity) Yet neither card has an auto on it and I find it hard to believe that I hit two autos and both weren’t signed. This could make faking these autos very easy to resell for the collectors that may not know the difference.

(3) Orange Refractor Jarius Wright, Blaine Gabbert, Carson Palmer

(6) X-Fractors Ben Roethlisberger, Devon Still, Riley Reiff, Reggie Bush, Antonio Gates, Nick Toon

(2) Rookie Relics Joe Adams Ronnie Hillman (Refractor 44/150)

These cards look great and have alot of nice inserts also a very colorful set. Each blaster has a Exclusive Rookie Relic.
