Komets auction nets $24,850
The Komets held their annual end-of-season Party and Charity Jersey Auction on Friday at the Coliseum and a total of 25 game-worn jerseys and the special scrapbook combined for a grant total of $24,850, topping last year’s auction total of $22,600.
The highest bid was $2,500 for ECHL MVP Shawn Szydlowski’s No. 27 sweater. It was the second time Szydlowski’s jersey snagged the highest bid at a Komets end of season auction. The forward’s jersey No. 19 pulled in a highest bid of $2,100 for the 2015-16 season.
The second highest bid Friday was $2,000 for Dennis Kravchenko’s No. 24. Cody Sol’s No. 44 fetched the third highest bid of $1,650.
In addition, a 2017-18 Komets Scrapbook kept by Fort Wayne fan Tina Mohr garnered a bid of $500. Net proceeds from the auction are to benefit local charities.
