McEvoy in 2012The winner of the 1983 World Series of Poker main event listed his piece of poker history on the auction site eBay this week.

Tom McEvoy, who was inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame in 2013, had the bracelet included in a package that was selling for $15,000 on Wednesday. The original price was $13,500.

The package appeared to have been taken off eBay, and it was unclear if it sold.

Other items in the package included three poker books he authored and two PokerStars Team Pro patches. McEvoy was once sponsored by PokerStars.

The sale also included a “one hour private poker lesson” with McEvoy, who lives in Las Vegas.

The 72-year-old has four WSOP bracelets and about $3 million in lifetime tournament earnings. His most recent cash was in the 2016 main event. He finished in 644th place for $18,714. However, he’s had only five cashes at the summer poker festival since 2010.

He has described his career as being in semi-retirement.

McEvoy isn’t the first main event champion to sell their championship bracelet. Jerry Yang did so in 2014; Brad Daugherty sold his in 2010; and Jamie Gold, winner of the largest main event in history, got rid of his in 2013. Peter Eastgate also auctioned off his, but the money went to charity.

Others to sell bracelets include T.J Cloutier and the late Paul “Eskimo” Clark.
