1996 era Steve Young Autograph 8x10 Plaque redemption prize
Large print signed by SY and artist.....wish I had the other 2-3 he made (and maybe the other 49ers)
I thought this 8x10 photo was cool....as everyone and their dog licensed it, and then Steve Young and PSA/DNA both certified it.
eBay has some pennants I am trying to avoid...lol.
More Young odd ball and cards later.

Another odd-ball Steve Young item.
An Ace Hardware apron signed by Steve Young, and sold by Ace Hardware in a charity for the Children's Miracle Network. Signed in 2000, so it doesn't look like it's going to fade as autos often do on some cloth. I have somewhere around 50 Young autos now...I really don't know.

This is the first time I have seen your Young collection - looks great. With all due respect to you, Mr Young and your collection the amount of CRAP that was produced in the 90s is amazing. Beanie Babies? Beanie Babies? LOL The world had gone Beanie Baby Mad. Even football players had meshed with Beanie Babies LOL
Hope you are not offended it's just funny how the sports cards phenomena expanded into all aspects of pop culture.
I went to a small shop today. It mostly has coins but thousands of packs from brands going back 25 years. I saw some of those baseball cards in a can! There was a point where no marketing opportunity was left undone.

The 1990s had a crazy amount of unusual NFL property items....lol. But it could be worst, I could collect odd-ball items of a MLB player. A popular MLB player likely had 10 times the amount of stuff an NFL did.
The Beanie Baby craze was a great thing for card shops and collectors. My local shop made twice the money in those bears, (and later Hot Wheels) then cards, for a couple years. For the collector, I would spent a hundred or so every couple weeks, and if I tossed a $10 bear in for the GF, it eased the you bought cards look.
