Rare Sports Items

    I was walking around town today after grabbing some lunch and I walked by an old sports collectibles shop that I hadn't been to in awhile. It was cold out so I thought I'd stop inside and look around and see if anything interested me. I found some signed bats, helmets, photos, etc., but none of which I could afford. I ended up buying a new ball cap and some baseball cards with my hope that I'd find a Mickey Mantle, Ted Williams or some other rare card.

    Anyone own some kind of rare sports memorabilia that you keep in your house that you got at a game or that you've purchased?

    David Wright's jock strap. I keep it under my pillow.

    Just my Brook Jacoby jersey, my autographed Brook Jacoby hat and my game-used Brook Jacoby bat.

    Well maybe a baseball, football or hockey puck that you got signed by a player as a kid or a baseball bat that flew into the stands or something like that. I guess you can't really classify that as rare, but items along those lines

    I saw a mini Cowboys helmet hand-painted by Peter Max. Couldn't afford it then, couldn't afford it now.

    Ehh, doesn't seem so rare to me. I gave away all but one or two of the BP balls I've caught.

    I got a splintered bat from Robbie Wine once when I was a kid. I'd say that's pretty rare. :D

    Guess what, you jerk, I actually have 1984 Cubs World Series tickets.

    Probably won't use them.

    I'd make a Tom Nevers crack, Bucky, but let's face it, 72,000 autographed 1991 Score cards don't exactly make for a rare item. :D :D :D

    i was given a jim leyritz bat once at a game, but it burned up. my family once gave torre, zimmer and a traveling secratary a ride from the kingdome to a restaurant in downtown seattle. that's pretty rare.

    They probably would look cool framed, actually. Similarly, I have a Chicago Blackhawks 1971 Stanley Cup Champions pennant somewhere. They actually sold them to goofy kids like me the next season, never mind the result of Game 7 against Les Canadiens.

    Did you know he hit .313-13-77 in 2002 with the Lookouts? Best season he's ever had. I smell a comeback ...
