Sandy Koufax and Michael Vick Autograph Stories

I saw a story about a game worn jersey Sandy Kouax had hand-signed from the Brooklyn Dodgers, going for $80,000. There are only one or two that have been known to exist of the Hall of Fame left-hander.


A glove used by the late Yankee catcher Thurman Munson, from his rookie year in 1969, went for $54,000.


Of all sports, I think baseball memorabilia grabs the most cash.


On the subject of sports, the funniest story lately, involves Dallas Cowboys running back Tashard Choice. He made a…bad choice…when it came to autographs. No, he didn’t refuse to sign for some child in a wheelchair. He was actually the one getting the autograph!


When the Cowboys played the Eagles a few weeks ago, he asked QB Michael Vick (of pitbull fighting fame) for an autograph for his nephew.


He later sent a Tweet out, because so many people were upset by this (not that it was a guy who did jail time and fights dogs, but he’s an opponent that just beat his team). The choice words he had:


“If its anybody that cares about winning and the d cowboys its me. I apologize to the people it was just an innocent jesture for my nephew.”


Now, what I found odd was that he’s claiming it’s for his nephew. His nephew is 3-years-old. Do children that age request autographs? I’m guessing that nephew would’ve been just as thrilled to have a football signed by the Dallas Cowboys, with his uncles John Hancock right along side the rest of the guys.


Now, if I had a relative in the NFL (in my best angry Homer Simpson voice: Dang you, wimpy Jewish genes!!!!) … I’d beg them to get me a dog collar signed by Vick. I’m guessing he’d refuse to sign it, but who knows. Those guys are stupid. And you could possibly trick him. Say it’s some S&M type of thing you and the wife wear to bed.

That's hysterical.  I don't see how anyone who isn't a Cowboys fan should be disappointed, as it was just for his nephew.  If I was a Cowboys fan though I would be really pissed because that shows that Choice has no dignity.  Losing to your opponent and asking for his sig doesn't exactly boost a loosing teams moral either.

Maybe he thought vicks autograph would be a cool collectible for his nephew in the future or for himself? Funny story Josh!
