This team has captured my viewing attention. What great young talent. They can hit and pitch. While TV ratings might be down, this is exactly what baseball needs – any team can win any year.
I was doing a little traveling online, checking out some of the upcoming auctions. There is some sweet stuff coming up for sale. Over at Game Used Universe, they are once again offering game-used jerseys in all different sports. Among the highlights are game-used jerseys of Cal Ripken Jr. (1988), Nolan Ryan (1980s Astros), Peyton Manning (2006 road) and many more.
And if you need to find any information on one of the pieces, just check out the Game Used Universe forums and ask questions. It’s a nice little system.
Also, Ironclad Auctions is offering items from the last game played at Yankee Stadium. They offer game-used pieces from the final Brian Roberts (Orioles) at-bat. they also have items from Cal Ripken Jr., Eddie Murray and other stars.
And I read in a report over the weekend that Guernsey’s auction of final Yankee Stadium artifacts didn’t go over that well. Having not seen the results myself at this time, I can’t say for sure. But the article mentioned how the economy was forcing people not to buy as much. That would be true, but the high reserves might also have something to do with it.
