In 2008, Peter Eastgate became what was then the youngest player to ever win the World Series of Poker. His victory earned him $9,152,416, as well as a piece of WSOP Gold.

Eastgate is selling his bracelet due to the fact that it is not worn, nor is he the type to wear jewelry. Made from 168 grams of 18 carat whites gold, containing 291 diamonds, the bracelet is valued at roughly $15,996 by an independent jeweler.

The sale of the bracelet will, according to the eBay listing, go to the charity UNICEF, or the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund.

One bid has been placed for the bracelet at the time of this article’s creation. Whether or not the bid is legitimate has yet to be determined. The auction is set to end on November 25th, 2010.
