Anybody remember these? These were from a stadium giveaway at Angel Stadium a while back. They were called “Thunder Sticks”…inflatable noise makers that were used to cheer your team on at the ballgame!

In honor of the man who is making his last couple of months of his incredible hall of fame big league career look like his first couple of months when he burst on the scene and became a superstar…here is a pic of my Albert Pujols garden gnome stadium giveaway from Angel Stadium a few years back.

I have this bat from the 1970 Orioles WS Champs. Have contemplated moving it, but hard to find consistent comps.

Not a sports item, but found new rooms in an old house! I had an item signed in a hard to see area on the photo by John Aaron, who was a Mission Control specialist during the Apollo Moon landings era. Not realizing it, I found the other day that he had also signed and inscribed the back, so I made this custom 8x10!!

John knew the right switch to flip when Apollo 12 was struck by lighting and it looked like they may need to abort the mission, and he said "Flight, try SCE to AUX" and when it worked and allowed the mission to continue, John earned the title "Steely Eyed Missile Man" from his friends and colleagues at NASA!

My wife and I both went to U of I in Champaign, and have an Illini Wall of Fame in our garage! Here's an original can of Illini Beer with the 1983 football schedule printed on the back, as well as a piece of Memorial Stadium from the renovation!

I went to a card show last year that was a real bust, everyone had their stuff marked up insanely high. My wife and children went with Grandma to the Color Drive the next county over which features lots of fall leaves, vendors with goodies, lots of fresh bakery, and this cool little Bears bear that my son got for me! My daughter added the tiki umbrella later!

Here's hoping the Bears beat the Giants and improve to 3-1 on Sunday!
