To celebrate and commemorate the Nets’ new identity and the opening of their new home in Brooklyn, 10 limited-edition “Carter 4” Nets jerseys will be auctioned. Autographed by Jay-Z himself, proceeds from the auction will benefit the Shawn Carter Foundation. During the sold-out Brooklyn shows, Jay-Z announced “I believe everybody in the world is born with genius level talent. Apply yourself to whatever you're genius at and you can do anything in the world.” His mission through the Shawn Carter Foundation is to help individuals facing socio-economic hardships further their education at institutions of higher learning. Since 2003, the Foundation has distributed more than $1.4M in scholarship awards to help needy scholars across the nation and all of the proceeds from this auction will support the advancement of the Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation.
The auction will go live on Auctions.NBA.com beginning Wednesday, Oct. 17 for a period of two weeks ending Wednesday, Oct. 31. Get to bidding!
