Oscar Robertson is set to auction off some of his most prominent basketball memorabilia, including his 1971 NBA championship ring.

Robertson, a former NBA MVP and Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame inductee, is auctioning off a variety of items in a Lelands.com event that runs through Aug. 17.

Among the 51 items listed are Robertson's championship ring he won with the Milwaukee Bucks in 1971, his Basketball Hall of Fame ring and induction trophy, 11 of his NBA All-Star rings -- he was a 12-time All-Star -- and his game-worn jerseys from the Bucks and University of Cincinnati.

Each item will include letter of authenticity signed by Robertson, whose storied NBA career ended in 1974. He has since had his jersey number retired by both the Bucks and Sacramento Kings. He was named to the Naismith Hall of Fame in 1980 for his playing career, which included nine first team All-NBA selections and the NBA Most Valuable Player award in 1964.

Robertson was honoured last month with the NBA's Lifetime Achievement Award.
