Goldin Auctions sold off the trophy on Sunday for the record amount, edging out the $399,608 that Rashaan Salaam's 1994 trophy sold for in 2016. The minimum bid for Brown's trophy was $125,000. Brown was the first wide receiver to ever win the honor.
The Notre Dame product had 846 receiving yards and three touchdowns, as well as 144 rushing yards and a score during the 1987 season. Brown also had three punt returns for scores during that campaign.
Brown later became the No. 6 overall pick in the 1988 NFL Draft by the Los Angeles Raiders. The Pro Football Hall of Famer played 17 seasons in the NFL, making the Pro Bowl nine times. Brown had nine consecutive seasons with at least 1,00 receiving yards from 1993 through 2001.
Goldin's holiday auction also included a Mickey Mantle rookie card selling for $58,920, a 1993 Dallas Cowboys Super Bowl ring ($44,190) and a pair of handcuffs used to arrest Lee Harvey Oswald after the JFK assassination ($76,105).
This is the very Heisman Trophy presented to Tim Brown of Notre Dame in 1987. Brown was the first ever wide receiver and one of 9 Pro Football HOF's to win the prestigious award. This is the pinnacle of American awards and it is excellent condition.@GoldinAuctions @NDFootball pic.twitter.com/xfomWIrYvE— Goldin Auctions (@GoldinAuctions) November 24, 2018
