XTO jersey auction underway
The Fort Worth Brahmas are conducting an online auction of their game worn XTO Energy jerseys. These jerseys were worn by the Brahmas players in their 4-2 loss to the Youngstown Steelhounds on Friday, February 17 at the Fort Worth Convention Center. The online auction will take place on the Brahmas official team website, www.brahmas.com.
The XTO Energy themed jerseys feature the XTO Energy logo on the front with a black, gold and white color scheme. The back and sleeve jersey numbers are black with gold trim. The nameplates on the jerseys are in black lettering. There are no shoulder patches on these jerseys.
XTO Energy, which has its corporate headquarters in downtown Fort Worth, is one of the largest energy production companies in the United States. XTO Energy hosted more than 700 guests including employees and their families at the Fort Worth Convention Center to see the Brahmas and the Steelhounds play last Friday night.
There are 13 game worn jerseys with player nameplates in the auction. Two of the jerseys--defenseman Konrad Brand's and forward Noah Katz--are game issued with player nameplates, because both Brand and Katz missed the aforementioned Brahmas/Steelhounds game because of injury.
The starting bid for all of the XTO Energy jerseys being auctioned is $100.00.
The online jersey auction began on Wednesday, February 22 at 12:00 noon and will end on Wednesday, March 1 at 12:00 noon. A portion of of the proceeds from this jersey auction will go to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
