The 2001 NBA All-Star Game was held in front of a sellout crowd at the MCI Center in Auerbach's hometown of Washington, D.C. This was the 50th edition of the annual event. Allen Iverson was named the game's Most Valuable Player after he rallied the East to garner an improbable 111–110 comeback victory over the West. The East trailed 95–74 with nine minutes left after the West dominated the first 39 minutes behind its superior size. Iverson sparked the comeback scoring 15 of his 25 points in the final nine minutes of the game. Stephon Marbury also helped the East by hitting two three-pointers in the final 53 seconds, including one with 28 seconds left, which proved to be the game-winner. This keepsake received by Red Auerbach at the event is a fine quality 6" by 4" by 2" Tiffany crystal box with the 2001 NBA All-Star Game logo etched on the lid. The underside of the lid has two small chips at the corners. Includes a letter of provenance from the Auerbach estate.
