Jamie Gold's 2006 WSOP Main Event gold bracelet is being auctioned off on Heritage Auctions — "The World's Largest Collectibles Auctioneer" — a self-dubbed title. Back in March the news broke that 2007 WSOP champion Jerry Yang's Main Event bracelet and other items had been seized by the IRS and would be offered at auction but Gold's decision to auction off his piece of WSOP history appears to be voluntary.

Gold's bracelet is described on Heritage Auctions website as follows:

“The bracelet features 259 stones including over seven carats of diamonds and 120 grams of white and yellow gold. Rubies are inset to create the red of the heart and diamond suits, while a sapphire represents the spade and three black diamonds the clubs. The clasp is stamped ‘14K.’ Fine condition. An absolutely amazing representation from one of the most talked about WSOP events in history.”

Bidding on the bracelet is scheduled to begin on July 13th, 2013, and will coincide with the 2013 WSOP Main Event.

Gold won $12 million in the biggest ever WSOP Main Event where 8,773 players joined the competition in 2006; he joins others that have auctioned off their bracelets, like Peter Eastgate, TJ Cloutier, Brad Daugherty, and Paul "Eskimo" Clark. Eastgate offered his 2008 WSOP Main Event bracelet to raise money for charity and sold it on eBay. William Haughey was the top bidder of the 116 bids that were placed and purchased the bracelet for $147,500. Haughey told that he would like to see the bracelet offered in a charity event with the cooperation of the WSOP.
