0719-hickok-belt-award-gallery-launch-01Interested in having 84 OUNCES of solid gold hanging around your crotch???

You're in luck ... because Ken Stabler's legendary "Hickok Belt" just hit the auction block. 

The belts were given away to the top U.S. athlete from 1950 to 1976 -- and feature 84 ounces of solid gold with a 3 carat diamond, 3 carat ruby, 3 carat sapphire and 26 diamond chips. 

Stabler was the LAST person to win the belt -- following his spectacular '76 season in which he led the Oakland Raiders to a Super Bowl victory.  

Previous winners include Muhammad Ali, O.J. Simpson, Joe Namath, Jim Brown and Sandy Koufax (he won twice). 

Stabler's belt was displayed at the University of Alabama for years -- but now, it's up for grabs through Pristine Auction

Starting bid -- $20,000 ... but the auction house believes the materials are worth $180,000 alone! 

Good luck! 

Grammy Jewels Delivery Guy Lost $15 Mil of Merch ... Chopard Sues

7/19/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0717-grammy-jewels-getty-2One unlucky Grammy celeb was supposed to get draped in $15 million worth of Chopard jewelry -- but got stiffed when a delivery guy went rogue and lost all the loot ... according to a new lawsuit. 

The Swiss watchmaker and jewelry company says it hired Ferrari Express, Inc. -- no relation to the sports cars -- to transport and safeguard the merchandise back in February ... on the night before the Grammys.

According to the lawsuit, Ferrari's guy decided to take a very costly detour. Chopard says he allegedly brought the van home and parked it on the street -- WITH $15 MILLION in jewels still inside -- in a neighborhood where "vehicle thefts are common."


Naturally, the van and all its contents were gone in the morning. Chopard says Ferrari Express refuses to pay up, so it's suing for the $15 million and then some.  

Major bummer for some celeb though.

Shemar Moore Delivers Good Time For 'Criminal Minds' Crew

7/14/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0713-shemar-moore-TMZ-01Shemar Moore's 11 seasons worth of tardiness finally paid off for his "Criminal Minds" co-workers ... who just got laced up with some pricey and ironic gifts from the actor.

Shemar left the show last year, but sources on set tell us he surprised his old cast and crew by showing up this week with 379 Swiss made Fortis watches. Each one has his initials and "always on time" stamped on the face -- a clear nod to Shemar NEVER being on time. 

They ain't cheap -- a regular Fortis costs anywhere between $600 to $1500, but maybe he got a deal for buying in bulk.

Sean Kingston Dudes Jacked My $300k Chain!!

6/28/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0627-sean-kingston-tmzSean Kingston's got an accessories problem ... someone straight up yanked a $300k chain off his neck ... so claims the singer.

By the time cops arrived Sean and the 2 suspects had split. We're told someone from Sean's camp filed a police report, and an investigation will be launched.

First his watch ... now this.

Nick Young Gets Short End of Stick In Iggy Breakup

6/22/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0621-nick-young-iggy-azalea-engagement-ring-02Iggy Azalea drives a hard bargain ... she's also now driving a 1962 Impala that Nick Young has given her as a parting gift.

We've learned that Iggy and Nick struck a deal ... he gets the engagement ring back and she gets the car she had given him for Xmas. 

Here's the breakdown ... the ring is 10.43 carats, and reportedly valued at half a mil.  

As for the whip ... a '62 Impala is a classic ... a cherry one can go for as much as $100k. 

It sounds like Nick made off like a bandit, but here's the twist. In California, and most states, an engagement ring is a gift in contemplation of marriage and if the nuptials never happen, the ring -- by law -- goes back to him.

As for the Impala, it was not tied to the marriage -- it was a Christmas gift -- so he did not have to give it back.   

Now you know, Nick ... for next time.
