Arnold "Red" Auerbach built and sustained the Boston Celtics dynasty through meticulous scouting, innovative coaching, cunning deal making and fiery leadership. A member of the Celtics organization for 55 years, Auerbach led the team to nine championships as a coach, including eight in a row. After, moving full time into the front office, Auerbach went on to engineer seven more Celtic titles as the team's general manager. It is likely that many of Auerbach's most critical decisions, shrewdest deals, and most brilliant analysis were conducted in this very chair. This Celtic green leather rolling office chair remained in his Boston office until his passing. It can be seen in photographs of Red seated in it that date as far back as the 1960's. The chair shows evidence of prolonged use, yet remains fully functional. If this chair could talk, one can only imagine the tales of player meetings, contract signings, trade talk, and other dealings it could tell. Note to bidders: transport costs may be substantial. Includes a letter of provenance from the Auerbach estate. Includes a letter of provenance from the Auerbach estate.
