Billed as the "ultimate Christmas gift for your Dragon," a picture of a fox dashing across the field during Southlake Carroll's winning state semifinal sold for $1,075 in an Ebay auction Wednesday. (Shipping was free).
Proceeds from the picture, donated by Southlake sports photographer Bob Beauvais and autographed by quarterback Kenny Hill and head coach Hal Wasson, will go to charity.
This morning, the folks at www.carrolldragons.com told fans to watch for another auction starting today, this time of a full-sized Dragon football helmet covered in Swarovski crystals.
UPDATE: the Dragon logo helmet auction has begun, with a starting bid figure of $1,500. Bidding ends Saturday at 8 p.m., and if the buyer pays immediately, it can be picked up Christmas Eve.
UPDATE 2: The auction drew a single bidder, who won the helmet after placing a bid for the asking price of $1,500 just two minutes before the auction closed on Christmas Eve, records show.
Here's a pic from the listing:
Dragon fans are tapping into social media and online sites to continue celebrating their eighth state football title while school is on winter break.
Shortly after the championship game last week, Southlake Carroll ISD Athletics posted Facebook pictures of the trophies at the base of a Christmas tree. The caption: "Merry Christmas, Dragons."
A pic uploaded Tuesday shows team captains designing their Texas football championship rings. Another post says the Dragon Den spirit shop sold out of state champion t-shirts and athletic boosters made a rush order for more, due in on Friday afternoon. The black shirt lists the years Carroll took state titles with the slogan: "History Repeats Itself."
