Eskimo Clark’s WSOP Bracelet Sells on eBay

by Omar

It used to be the case that owning a World Series of Poker Bracelet was a crowning achievement of a poker player’s career. However, these days, all it takes it seems is to have plenty of money to burn as well as a well-timed bidding finger as yet another poker player has pawned off their piece of poker immortality on popular online auction site, eBay.

The latest player to do so is notoriously down on his luck gambler Paul “Eskimo” Clark. Over a week ago, Clark put up for auction the bracelet he earned for his win in the 1999 World Series of Poker $1,500 RAZZ event. When it ended on Wednesday, the item sold for $4,050 to an unknown bidder.

In the past year, both TJ Cloutier, and more recently, Peter Eastgate auctioned of their bracelets as well which has created a bit of controversy in the poker world by those who feel the moves cheapen the prestige of the premier tournament series.

However, it should be noted that it is unclear if Clark had anything to do with this sale or if it was sold by someone he gave it to in the past during on of his many well-chronicled downswings. The seller hailed from Ireland and Clark is not known to ever be on foreign soil.

To date, no one knows the identity of the winning bidder of either Clark’s nor Eastgate’s bracelet though Tony G was said to be in the hunt for the latter.
