Game Used Universe Fall 2008 Auction: It’s All Good!

Game Used Universe (GUU), the popular website used by sports memorabilia collectors throughout the hobby to help them make informed decisions about the items they purchase, has launched its third major auction. Regardless of your collecting interests, the auction offers quality memorabilia for just about every type of collector. The auction is now open and runs through October 23rd.  Football collectors will be amazed by the number of quality game used items with solid provenance. As for current players, the auction features items coming directly from teams like the Dallas Cowboys, Washington Redskins and Chicago Bears, as well as other items that came directly from players.Â

For example, legitimate gamers of Peyton Manning, Brian Urlacher, Tony Romo, Lance Briggs and a slew of other current stars with either player or team letters can be found in the auction. In fact, it is not surprising that there are a number of Dallas Cowboy jerseys in the auction originating directly from the team given Game Used Universe is an exclusive distributor for Cowboy/Steiner game used memorabilia.

If you collect vintage football, there is a first-year Cowboy durene jersey (from 1960), a Bob Brown (HOF) 1971 Raiders durene jersey, an early 1970s Bob Lilly Cowboys jersey, a 1967 Dave Kocourek Raiders jersey worn in Super Bowl II and John Taylor’s SF 49er jersey worn in Super Bowl XXIX. In addition, John Taylor’s helmet worn in Super Bowl XXIII, when he made the famous catch with 34 seconds remaining to beat the Bengals, is also featured in the auction.

Baseball fans will also have plenty to salivate over as well. Along with a circa 1918 House of David full uniform, there are also plenty of other star game used jerseys including Cal Ripken Jr., Rollie Fingers, Nolan Ryan, Roger Clemens, Dice-K Matsuzaka, Joba Chamberlain (his Major League Debut jersey), Dennis Eckersley and a slew of others. Looking for game used bats? How about a Roberto Clemente gamer or an Al Simmons side-written bat, a Tony Gwynn rookie era bat, bats of retired players like Johnny Bench and Ozzie Smith or tons of current stars like Albert Pujols, Josh Hamilton, Derek Jeter, David Ortiz, and the tough to find Ryan Braun.

In addition, there are plenty of other items looking for new homes. For example, the auction features one of the nicest 19th Century ‘Lemon Peel’ baseballs in the hobby, team signed balls of the 1956 Brooklyn Dodgers and Super Bowl XLII champion NY Giants, Rollie Fingers and Jorge Posada fielding gloves, Jose Canseco and Reggie Jackson batting helmets, Jerry Rice game used cleats, and a used Yankee Stadium home plate from the last season of the House that Ruth Built. And these are only a sample of items that also include game used caps, jackets, bases, pitching rubbers, clubhouse chairs, line-up cards and much more.

“The Fall ’08 auction is loaded,” says GUU’s Christopher Cavalier, “and the buyers are protected by the most transparent auction format in the hobby today. Our exclusively designed software allows collectors to interact in real-time about each item — asking questions, providing information, whatever – so that potential buyers have all the information they need about items of interest. The possibility of an item with suspect authenticity making it through the GUU process is extremely unlikely.”
Â
This auction is open from October 2 through October 23, so check it out today at www.gameuseduniverse.com. If you’ve spent years searching for that 1969 San Diego Rockets game used basketball jersey, look no farther. Or a football from John Elway’s last Super Bowl. Maybe that game used bat which has been signed by the World Champion 1992 Toronto Blue Jays. It’s all there, and “It’s All Good!”
