super bowl jersey in auction disputed

Is the jersey Michael Strahan wore in Super Bowl XLII in the hands of someone who wants to auction it off or is it hanging on the wall in Strahan’s downstairs gym? As of this writing, it’s an unresolved yet intriguing question. The jersey became disputed when the former New York Giants Pro Bowler learned that Goldin Auctions had put the jersey up for bid in its latest auction. Strahan claimed in an interview on Aug. 19 that he still has the sweaty jersey he wore during that 17-14 victory over the New England Patriots in the 2008 Super Bowl. He said in a Pardon My Take podcast, “Why would I sell it? I don’t need the money.” The former star defensive end added that the jersey is the “most special piece…

this starr keeps shining

ATHLETES CAN BE ROLE MODELS — Who’s the ultimate sports hero—a star on the field of play who also showed class and decency off the field? One name that belongs in the discussion is Bart Starr. The longtime Green Bay quarterback was a leader, a clutch performer and (per his five NFL championships in five seasons) a winner. And off the field, Starr was a model citizen, throwing his time and energy into all kinds of charitable ventures, including the Rawhide Boys Ranch (rawhide.org) and Vince Lombardi Cancer Foundation (lombardifoundation.org). The Top 10 chart here puts Starr in our eyes again. The Hall of Famer, who died in May 2019, will always have a place of honor in the hobby, thanks to his rookie card, a key to Topps’ 1957 football…

iconic mantle photo on 1952 topps rookie card: bland but beautiful

A fresh-faced, 19-year-old rookie from Oklahoma grabs a baseball bat. He’s ready for his photo to be taken. With the lumber resting on his shoulder while looking off to his right with a New York Yankees cap on, a photographer from the International News Service (INS) takes a few shots. “It’s totally random,” said Henry Yee, lead photo authenticator for PSA. “There’s nothing special about it when the image was taken…This was just another spring training.” Yee believes a photographer was assigned to the Yankees preseason camp that year. What that photographer captured on March 5, 1951 in Phoenix has turned into one of the most iconic images in baseball card history. The black-and-white, 7-by-9-inch photo was used for the epic 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle rookie card, and obviously colorized by the card company. “When…
