Well, heres some of my tribe memorabilia I've obtained over the years. Haven't made any additions in quite a while - mostly in person stuff. On a side note, would like to thank Davey Nelson (former tribe 1st base coach) who threw me a lot of official balls that I ended up getting signed! I need to send him a thank you card.

My personal favorite : 'The Joey Belle Ball'. Had this ball signed when I was a little kid after an Indians game by Joey Belle (Pre-Albert Belle), Kevin Wickhander, Sandy Alomar, Carlos Baerga, and Beau Allred.

Probably my 2nd favorite, Kenny Lofton signed official game used ball (thanks Davey Nelson!) that is stamped for Jacob Fields first year in 1994!

Jaret Wright official ball, dated Oct '97 commemorating Wrights brilliant post-season performance as a rookie.

Saved up my allowance for a long time to buy this Manny Ramirez bat from a local hobby shop when I was 13 or so.

Jim Thome autographed ball from the ballpark before a game (kinda gave me the 'no-look' signature but i'll take it!)

Omar Vizquel autographed official '97 World Series ball - was a gift from my dad (won it at a benefit auction in Cleveland)

Great stuff, even better that there are stories to go with the stuff, makes it worth that much more.
