OJ Simpson is scheduled to be released from prison in October, so a local Las Vegas sports and memorabilia company has decided to sell one of the stolen and recovered collectibles that put the controversial NFL Hall-of-Famer behind bars.
Simpson was convicted of felony robbery and conspiracy in 2008 for a an incident that occurred at Palace Station and has been in prison for the past nine years. However, a parole board in July decided to grant him parole. He’s expected to be released as early as Oct. 1.
Inscriptagraphs is selling an 8×10 framed photo that depicts a 20-year-old Simpson running track at the University of Southern California (USC) where he was a member of the school’s sprint relay quartet. When he was on the team, the quartet broke the record in the 4 x 110-yard relay at the NCAA track championships in June of 1967.
The piece is signed by both Simpson and his friend, Bruce Fromong, who was also the victim of the famed Palace Station robbery. During Simpson’s parole hearing Fromong testified on Simpson behalf in favor of his parole.
On the piece signed by Simpson and Fromong, Fromong even went as far as writing the exact hotel room number, 1203, on the item. That’s the hotel room number where the incident occurred. The piece is going for $799
