My Prized Possession

I'm not sure how this came into existence. Maybe it was dark. Or he needed a quick buck. Perhaps it's just a fake. Whatever the reasoning, I present to you, the loyal readers of SoSG, a photo of the famous Bill Buckner error signed by Red Sox Pitcher BOB "THE STEAMER" STANLEY: The very pitcher responsible for throwing the ball in the dirt which tied the game, and opened the door for Buckner's recently completed turmoil.

I defy all sports fans to come up with a signed piece of memorabilia more representative of abject failure.

I have an autographed Steve Yeager card.

No joke: SoSG Eric Karros once gave me a Baltimore Orioles Cal Ripken t-shirt autographed by Jim Palmer.

Also true story. I tried to get Keanu Reeves to sign a picture of Greg Kinnear. He didn't dig that.

As posted before, I do have a Mario Mendoza card. But thanks to Andruw Jones, Robinson Cano, and Ryan Howard, he just ain't that special no more.

At least it's not a jar of spit.
