Grey Flannel‘s Basketball Hall of Fame Induction Auction netted $1.48 million recently — an average lot price of more than $6,600 — with some classic items helping lead the way.

The annual auction, which was held at the Hall of Fame, is in its fifth year and was topped by a 1968-69 Boston Celtics home warm-up jacket worn by Bill Russell and and a 1965-66 Wilt Chamberlain Philadelphia 76ers game-used home jersey. Each drew $84,000.

A collection of items from Hall of Famer Dennis Johnson was sold, including his 1984 Boston Celtics World Championship player’s ring, which went for $78,000. His 1980 Western Conference game-used All-Star uniform went for $24,000.

An autographed circa-1976 Portland Trailblazers home jersey worn by  Bill Walton sold for $72,000, while an Elvin Hayes circa-1970 game-used and autographed San Diego Rockets home uniform went for $60,000. A Dolph Schayes mid-1950s Syracuse Nationals game-used and autographed home jersey went for $51,000.

Other highlights included  mid-1960s Gail Goodrich rookie-era L.A. Lakers autographed road jersey and a late-1960s Jerry West game-used Lakers home uniform. Each was sold for an impressive $48,000.

Grey Flannel’s next auction is scheduled for Nov. 7 and will include a 1961 Mickey Mantle road jersey bearing the No. 6, which he wore in spring training.
