Retired Nike President, Elliott Hill is Auctioning 30-Plus Years of Memorabilia
A former Nike employee, who started as an intern before retiring as president, is auctioning off sports memorabilia amassed in their 30-plus year career with the Swoosh, with proceeds helping young students.
The auction collection is titled ‘Hail Mary: The Collection of Elliott Hill’. 176 lots will open for bidding on LiveAuctioneers at the end of the week, and there are plenty of interesting listings.
Elliott Hill joined Nike in June 1988 as an intern before working his way up to president of Consumer & Marketplace. This decades-long tenure, which ended in 2020, has naturally granted Hill access to considerably coveted items.
On the footwear front, there is pair of Air Force 1s from 1984, rendered with purple accents and branded TCU (Hill’s alma mater). Other shoes include a pair of Air Veers signed by Troy Aikman and a pair of Nike cycling shoes signed by Lance Armstrong.
There’s also plenty of apparel from basketball, football and hockey jerseys to collaborative Stone Island jackets. Equipment including helmets, bats, basketballs and baseballs are available too. And for those who prefer print, there are over 30 issues of Sports Illustrated up for grabs.
Proceeds from this auction will go towards the Candace Newland Holley Scholarship, and Elliott and Gina Hill will match up to $750,000 in additional donations.
