A Toronto Museum Is Auctioning Off Raptors Sneakers From The Championship Game
Attention all Raptors superfans! If you ever wanted to own a piece of not only basketball history but Toronto history, now is your chance because a Toronto museum is auctioning off Raptors players’ sneakers that they wore during the playoffs.
Toronto’s Bata Shoe Museum recently opened a Raptors exhibit and once it’s over, the sneakers worn by the actual Raptors players will be auctioned off to the highest bidder.
The exhibit is completely dedicated to the sneakers worn the Raptors players during the playoff games. Even though the Raptors won the championship back in June, the celebrations have kept rolling on, despite the fact that TO is losing star players Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green.
A collection of the sneakers belonging to the members of the 2018-2019 Raptors team is currently on display as of July 11 on the main floor of the museum.
Newswire reports that the sneakers on loan to the Bata Shoe Museum include those worn by players Kyle Lowry, Danny Green, Serge Ibaka, Marc Gasol, Norman Powell, Pascal Siakam, and Fred VanVleet, all during the historic 2019 NBA playoffs.
In addition to the sneakers worn by Raptors players being on display, you can even catch a glimpse of Raptors Global Ambassador and rapper, Drake’s sneakers as well.
For mega-mega Raptors fans who would love the opportunity to own a pair of these game worn-sneakers, get ready to bid! When the exhibit is over, the sneakers will be auctioned off by the museum to raise money for the MLSE Foundation. Full details on the auction have yet to be announced.

The sneakers will remain on display until just before the beginning of the 2019/2020 NBA season. Folks can take in the sights, and the smells, of the Raptors players’ shoes until September 18, 2019.
