FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 18, 2009 – Pompano Beach, Fla. – The Los Angeles Lakers capped a successful postseason run this week when the team hoisted the Larry O'Brien Championship Trophy, marking the franchise's 15th title.
Cash4Gold, America's #1 gold buyer direct from the general public, today suggested that the Lakers could send in their new trophy to Cash4Gold to help defray the costs of Wednesday's victory celebration. Certified appraisers at Cash4Gold have examined photographs of the renowned trophy, estimating that it might contain as much as $3,500 worth of precious metals. The trophy weighs roughly 16 pounds, stands nearly two feet tall and is composed of sterling silver overlaid with 24 karat gold.
Considering the remarkable achievement that the Larry O'Brien Trophy represents for the Lakers, its worth probably outweighs the melt value that the piece would garner if it were sent to Cash4Gold. Melt value refers to the value of actual precious metal contained in an item that a refinery can extract and recycle. Melt value does not account for the decorative, artistic, historic or sentimental value of a given item.
"Cash4Gold congratulates the Lakers on being crowned the 2009 NBA Champions, and understands if the team decides not to mail in its trophy to Cash4Gold," said Cash4Gold CEO Jeff Aronson. "But Lakers fans and all other Americans should keep in mind that Cash4Gold is available to help them cash in on unwanted gold or silver jewelry, so they should contact us today to request a free Refiner's Return Pak."
Cash4Gold is currently running a Gold Rush promotion offering customers an additional 20% payout for items submitted to the company before July 4, 2009.
