Weird Sports Memorobilia

Bubblegum of Diamonback's outfielder, Luis Gonzalez.
Luis Gonzalez's Gum

A piece of bubblegum chewed up and spit out by Luis Gonzalez of the Arizona Diamondbacks was recently auctioned off for ten thousand dollars. How twisted is that? Someone wanted to buy a piece of dirty, flavorless bubblegum just because it had been chewed by Luis Gonzalez! Here's a list of some other weird sports-related stuff that people have paid big money for.

  • Andre's Hair
    A sports cafe in Las Vegas paid thousands of dollars for the ponytail of tennis star, Andre Agassi. The ponytail is now on display in a glass case for people to admire while they chow down on burgers and fries.
  • Tennis With Andre
    It's not just his hair that people will pay Andre big money for. In 2001, Wayne Gretzky and his wife Janet paid $125,000 to play a game of tennis against Andre Agassi and his wife, Steffi Graf. The money went to Andre Agassi's charity.
  • A Round With Tiger
    In 2000, a billionaire from Ireland shelled out more than two million bucks at a charity auction to play a round of golf with Tiger Woods.
  • Ty's Teeth
    In 2000, a woman paid nearly $8,000 for a pair of false teeth worn by baseball legend, Ty Cobb. The woman is the daughter of a dentist and apparently shares her father's interest in teeth.
  • Tim's Trimmings
    The shavings of Oakland A's pitcher, Tim Hudson, were sold at a sports auction in 2002 for $75. Dirt from his cleets was sold for $50.
  • Shaq's Backboard
    During his rookie season, Shaquille O'Neal smashed the glass of several backboards with his thunderous slam dunks. The owners of a sports cafe in New York bought the twisted remains of one of those backboards to decorate their restaurant.

What sort of sports collectibles would you like to have? Would you pay money for Kobe's 'fro or a towel used by Allen Iverson? what you think would be a cool sports collectible.
