Just curious. Awhile back I found an awesome home rookie jersey of Gonzalez (worn in late 1990), one of only two of his bats used in 1989 (his first and very short season in the bigs), and a pair of 1993 cleats.

You can currently get his bats for $100-150, a real steal considering that not long ago you paid that for a card with a chip of a bat on it.

I just can't see paying $40-50 for a swatch or a chip of equipment, when at these prices you can get the whole item for not much more.

I will upload a photo of my memorabilia in the display case I bought on eBay for $200, high but an awesome case.

I would enjoy looking at what you have as well as the case. I could never get into memorabilia and don't have a single piece. But enjoy what others have collected.

I used to buy signed bats and balls.
Only one item was game used, and it was a bat Juan used during spring training with the Tigers.
I also have a bat Juan donated to a OKC bombing victims fund raiser.
Another item I like is a 1993 All-Star game ball signed by Juan.

by the way Juan is wearing the same jersey (or another just like it) in the Beckett mag by it. If anyone is interested in where I got the case I will look up the details for them.

Very, Very cool. I like looking at this stuff. Can you put up more items?

You had the case built into the wall? I could incorporate that into my office without upsetting my wife, I think!
