if anyone else is possibly up for this a few of us could put up items
as a "bet" i gues you would say.im not saying anything huge just little
stuffand whoever wins gets the pot of items.
such as i would put in somthing like-

billy butler signed mini bat

if i get atleast 2 more people to agree upon this
we can do it. heck give it some good fun.

Andrew -

Glad you like it!

I also have the following complete Rockies uniform:

I will post a picture of the entire uniform on mannequin (Jersey, Pants. Helmet) later - it is Eric Young Jr's uni from Sept 8, 2009 when he hit his 1st (and still ONLY) MLB Homerun which I recovered! It is photo matched to the at bat.

All the best -

I was watching that too. Im going to send them a couple of my things. Did you do it yourself or they did it for you?

I did it myself. I used photoshop to make my stuff look good...Its also cheaper to do it yourself. They get 20% if they do it but only 15% if you do it

Yeah I notice that. Did you call them or email them? I think it will be easier if i call them. Just wondering :winking0071:

I called but first you have to print out a contract, sign it, then fax it to them. After that it's smooth sailing

A few years ago they would take months (5+) to pay the sellers. Then if you got to sell the item yourself there would always be a non paying bidder or they would somehow charge you more than the 15%....

Well I am making a ton more money on that site than I ever did on eBay. And the prices that items on that site fetch are way above eBay. One example I sold a 1999 AL All Star Game team signed baseball for $300 w/o authentication. One on eBay with a JSA letter was listed for $279.99 buy it now. So Im not trying to stick it to you, I'm just saying they are reputable to me lol

Both buddy :]

The Giambi (which I am reposting because my link looks broken above on the voting board) came from Phil Cain in Grand Junction, CO - he is a big bulk buyer from the Rockies each year.


The EY jersey I won on eBay (photo matched it 1st) and got the pants from Kim Stigall (Ball Park Heroes - BPH).
