I used to, but havent done much last year or two. I got a TON of Wings stuff, a few Tigers stuff, and very few Lions and I think Tayshaun Prince signed photo of The Block is the only Pistons thing I have.

I got a ton of Wings 8 x 10's and a few pucks, mostly players from the past 2-3 years or so. Also got Hasek to sign my jersey. I got Tigers the last few years, they are harder than Wings, so I got a lot less stuff, but have some baseballs signed and some cards and a couple 8 x 10's and Verlander signed jersey. Lions, all I have are Shaun Rogers, Ernie Sims and Louis Delmas 8 x 10's and a mini helmet I got at the event they held this year signed by the group that Pettigrew was in (dont remember who else was in it, the helmet is at my house). I also have some FSU stuff, but I dont think anyone would be interested in it on here.

Tigernut,

As far as UofM stuff, I only have two signatures-coaches Bo and Rodriguez. I would like to get signatures of Moeller and Carr and get these matted/framed. Do you have an address for these coaches? Does either of these two still have an offices in Ann Arbor?

According to SCN, Carr signed in 8 days in December to this address:

Schembechler Hall 1200 State St Ann Arbor MI 48104

I've got a Pistons program from the Cobo days with autographs of all the guys... Bob Lanier, Dave Bing, Jon Mengelt, Curtis Rowe, George Trapp and a few others.

I like to collect Wings and Lions cards that have those jersey swatches in them. Especially the multi-colored ones.

I'm not an active collector of the other teams, but I do have some stuff. Here are the highlights off the top of my head.

My favorite is a personalized 8x10 of Steve Yzerman that was signed during his rookie (I think) season. He also signed a Wings schedule, so I could check the year. He and Lane Lambert appeared at a show, and I got signed 8x10's of both, and they both signed the schedule. My favorite Lions item is a personalized Joe Schmidt card with HOF inscription that I got as a kid.

I was very fortunate in that my family had extremely good season tickets for the Pistons during their Silverdome days, and I scored a boatload of autographs and GU wristbands there. It also wasn't uncommon to see other local athletes at those games, and I got Billy Sims at a game, and at another there was a group of U of M football players that we got, including Anthony Carter.

My best basketball item is a dual signed auto of Magic and Isiah from a Palace charity game that Isiah sponsored. Unfortunately I didn't plan ahead so I had to get their autos on the ticket. It's really more of an invitation than a ticket - it's larger - so it's still nice, but a photo would have been better. I also got Joe D there on a blank piece of paper, and he added "#4 MVP" per my request as it was right after he won the Finals MVP. Again, a photo would have been better. I must not have realized there'd be autograph opportunities - I can't remember.

Finally, I attended the Bob Lanier - Dick Vitale basketball camp twice as a kid and got a lot of nice autos there. On a more obscure note, I have a page full of Detroit Express autos from when my youth soccer team played a game at the Silverdome.

My non-Tigers stuff is really scattered and buried throughout the house. Remembering all this makes me think I should pull it together in a more organized fashion, as I'm sure there are lots of things I'm forgetting about.

I try to collect some other autos as well, but the Tigers are still my favorite. I have a shot at getting some former redwings autos on January 30th pm me if you are interested.

I have a bunch of old Lions stuff from when training camp was at SVSU because it's pretty close to my house.

Check out my photobucket if you want to see the stuff

Do any of you guys know where I can sell something? I have a signed basketball by the Dream Team II...Shaq and those guys. They all signed the ball after winning the gold medal. I have a cert of auth from Field of Dreams.

I've posted it on craigslist a few times but I keep getting really low ball offers. I honestly don't even know how much it's worth.

Any suggestions?
