Game-Used Bowl Jersey, Tebow Uppercut Edition

Post image 1

Submitted for the approval of the Mantel society is this game-used jersey of Alex Carrington from the 2010 Senior Bowl. Carrington was a defensive lineman from Arkansas State who used his Senior Bowl invite as an opportunity to get attention from scouts prior to the NFL draft. His efforts paid off, as his performance nudged him up to the 72nd overall pick that year. He went on to play six seasons in the NFL, mostly for the Bills.

I love game-used memorabilia that tells a story or captures an interesting moment. For this reason, I knew I had to snag this jersey when I found a photo of Carrington uppercutting Tim Tebow during the game - an image that became one of Sports Illustrated’s photos of the week. In an age when NFL prospects skip high-tier bowl games to avoid injuries, it feels like ancient history to see one of the greatest college football players ever take snaps in a showcase bowl game. Tebow was battling strep throat that week - I highly doubt this haymaker aided in his recovery.

Even without documentation, it’s safe to assume that this jersey is authentic and game-worn, considering that Under Armor likely didn’t make multiple jerseys for one bowl game and nobody’s bootlegging an Alex Carrington jersey. Even so, I found a game photo that clearly demonstrates the red mark on the front #6 and the loose thread that hangs below the Under Armor logo. Conclusive evidence is always nice.

Gretzky Cup Clinching Stick Auction

Post image 1

Found this interesting- Gretzky's stick from the '88 Cup- signed, game-used, matched to the clinching game- is up for auction at Sotheby's and currently sitting at $42K after 64 bids.

Given the Oilers are back in the Cup Finals, haven't won in 30ish years, and this stick was used by the greatest to ever play... is anybody else surprised by the current bid price?

Sotheby's has a Shai Gilgeous Alexander jersey from a relatively meaningless game where he scored 12pts up on their site for $20,000... You mean to tell me a stick Gretzky used when he won a Cup is only worth 2x that?

NBA definitely has more hype and collecting power than hockey, but I'm surprised. What am I missing?

Marshall Fogel Mantle/Cigar Box

Never seen anything like this!

Marshall Fogel, for those who don’t know, is one of the GOATS of sports memorabilia and card collecting, and owns the best example of the 1952 Mantle in existence.

Leland’s just announced a collectible cigar offering with Fogel- a box of cigars plus a Fogel-signed replica PSA 10 Mantle.

Can’t remember ever seeing anything like this, where the collector is so respected that people would care to have his auto. Pretty cool.

I don’t smoke cigars and this is limited to 100, but I imagine it sells out.

Yoshinobu Yamamoto Bobblehead

Not a big bobble head collector but never pass up the chance to get one when they give em out at games. Went to the Dodgers game last night and was lucky enough to get one of Yamamoto’s first bobblehead as an MLBer. Had to hit two gates to find one, as they ran out early (I was there 40 minutes before first pitch!), so I’m stoked I was able to actually end up with one.

Already a bunch on eBay for $100+. Mine is staying with me.
