Besides collecting vintage Star Wars figures, Boba Fett items, and Star Wars Autographs, my other passion is collecting sports memorabilia... especially autographs.

I thought I would start a thread so I can showcase and share my sports autograph collection with the TIG community.

I know many of you are sports fans, while other are not, but I still hope you enjoy looking at my items!!!

This thread is a work in progress....

PostSubject: Chicago Bandits Batting Practice Jersey   Wed Aug 11, 2010 1:41 pm

2009 Chicago Bandits Softball Team - Batting Practice Jersey


I won this item straight from the Chicago Bandits in a charity raffle. It is a batting practice jersey signed by the 2009 Chicago Bandits Softball Team. The Chicago Bandits are a National Pro Fastpitch Womens Softball Team.

What I love about this jersey is that it's signed by one of my favorite athletes, Jennie Finch. Finch helped lead Team USA to win the gold medal at the 2004 Summer Olympics and a silver medal at the 2008 Summer Olympics. Time magazine described her as the most famous softball player in history. On July 20, 2010 Finch officially announced her retirement from softball to focus on her family.

Jennie Finch's autograph is in the upper left hand corner of the pictures.

If you do not know who Jennie Finch is... I posted a picture of her as well!!!

PostSubject: Bob Gibson Signed Jersey   Wed Aug 11, 2010 2:57 pm

Bob Gibson Signed Jersey

I know! I know! I am committing a "Cardinal Sin" by being a Cubs fan and having a piece of Cardinals memorabilia!!!

But I don't care!!! I am a pitcher... and there are several pitchers that I grew up idolizing!!! One of them being St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame pitcher, Bob Gibson. Even though I was to young to watch him play, I read books about him and saw plenty of vintage highlight films.

His list of accomplishments are too long to list!!!

This guy was one of the most intimidating and dominate pitchers ever!!! In 1969 Major League baseball lowered the height of the pitchers mound to make hitting easier for the batters because Bob Gibson had a season Earned Run Average of 1.12 the year before.

Hall of Famer, Hank Aaron had this to say about facing Gibson: "'Don't dig in against Bob Gibson, he'll knock you down. He'd knock down his own grandmother if she dared to challenge him. Don't stare at him, don't smile at him, don't talk to him. He doesn't like it. If you happen to hit a home run, don't run too slow, don't run too fast. If you happen to want to celebrate, get in the tunnel first. And if he hits you, don't charge the mound, because he's a Gold Glove boxer.' I'm like, 'Damn, what about my 17-game hitting streak?' That was the night it ended."

PostSubject: Chicago Blackhawks - Kane & Toews 16x20   Wed Aug 11, 2010 3:03 pm

Chicago Blackhawks - Kane & Toews 16x20

Crank up "Chelsea Dagger" by The Fratellis!!! After 49 years the Blackhawks brought the Stanley Cup back to Chicago!!!

The two young stars that lead the way were Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane!!!

Toews is currently the youngest captain in the NHL. In addition to winning the Stanley Cup in 2010 he also won the Conn Smythe Trophy for being the playoff MVP.

Patrick Kane is the Blackhawks young star winger! "Kaner" scored the winning goal in Game 6, giving the Hawks the Cup!!!

Hopefully this is the start of a dynasty!!!

GO HAWKS!!!
