I am a new member here. I collect LSU exclusively. If it has anything to do with LSU, I will grab it. I have quite a collection. My most recent pick up was a Pete Maravich autobiography signed by him. The rarity in this book is that it was published just a few months before he died, so there is only a few signed copies.

Here is my collection room. The big green Bertman sign came from the old Alex Box stadium they tore down this year. Bertman was the headcoach with five national championships. When he retired, they retired his number and put it on the left field wall. They auctioned the piece off:

Very nice room. As you say that Bertyman piece has some history behind it. As the old saying goes: If these walls could talk" bet they have some colorful tales to share.

A perfect contest for me:

BATON ROUGE - With Football Fan Day just a few weeks away and the season beginning shortly thereafter, LSU Football wants to see how excited you are for the 2010-11 season. The Athletic Department will be rewarding fans who show their Tiger spirit in the Countdown to Kickoff Photo Contest.
Fans will be asked to submit photos to lsu@crowdcameo.com in three different categories over a three week period. If your photo is the top vote-getter for a particular week, you will be awarded an LSU Athletics prize pack featuring a private tour of LSU's athletic facilities.
Week 1 - July 19th through July 26th
LSU Room - Fans will be asked to submit their best picture of a room in their home that shows off their LSU spirit.
Prize - LSU Prize pack featuring a tour for four (4) of LSU's athletic facilities and the privilege of skipping the line at LSU Football Fan Day
