Anyone who couldn’t afford the $147,500 it took to buy Peter Eastgate’s Main Event bracelet on eBay was given another shot to buy their way to WSOP glory. 1991 WSOP Main Event winner Brad Daugherty recently put his bracelet for sale on eBay. The auction ran for ten days and concluded with a bid of $30,100. This is considerably more than the bracelet’s value in gold which is estimated to be just under $2,500. Despite fetching more than ten times the bracelet’s value as a precious metal, Daugherty did not let the bracelet go to the highest bidder. The auction ended with the reserve having not been met which means the seller retains possession of the item.
It is unclear what price Daugherty was holding out for; eBay does not list the minimum reserve price once an auction concludes. Whether or not Daugherty plans to re-list the item also remains to be seen. The former world champ, who earned the bracelet after becoming the first to win a $1 million prize in a poker tournament, has played poker only sparingly in the past several years. His last cash in a WSOP event came in 2007 when he finished 29th in the $1,000 Seniors event. Daugherty has failed to make a single six-figure cash, let alone seven-figures, since his win in 1991.
