New York’s Sports Museum of America has filed for bankruptcy, and is holding some priceless memorabilia hostage, the Wall Street Journal reports. Though more established halls of fame saw the move coming and pulled out loaners, the trustee wants legal fees from owners of items still in storage, or they could go to auction. Items include Tony Hawk’s childhood skateboard and Jesse Owens’ Olympic gold.

Very shady to hold the memorabilia hostage.

That was quick. I wanted to go to this place, but their admission was absurd.
