A Pen Pal Friend of Mine, and Basketball Legend, Has Passed -- Who Said White Men Can't Jump?

When I was a little kid, I became obsessed with basketball. I'd go to the rec center and play most days, even if it was rainy weather or I had basketball practices. I had T-shirts with various basketball players on them -- usually Lakers players or Pete Maravich. One day I had a substitute teacher in 10th grade. I was wearing the warm-up shirt of the JV team I played on and…

Give Me a Head With Hair (Just not for collecting purposes!)

It’s strange how people get when it comes to collectables. Just today, I heard that the gold medal Jesse Owens won in the Berlin Olympics in 1936 (talk about a big F-U to Hitler), is on the auction blocks.

A Tsunami of ???? Autographs on eBay

The number of questionable autographs of Mickey Mantle and Ted Williams on ebay has reached epidemic proportions.

There are also a good number of Sandy Koufax and Joe DiMaggio questionable autographs on ebay.

Beware those with Nicholas Burczyk COA's. I have yet to find one of those COA's that I agree with. Despite my posts on various places including my own blog on my website, nobody has been able to prove to me that Mr Burczyk actually ever authenticated a baseball…
