Err...I have a box full of Peter Warrick stuff. I'm not proud to say how much $ I've lost on him since it's depreciated so much, though. My favorite Warrick item is probably a game-used autographed shoe I bought...authenticated by ASI.

In terms of memorabilia, I like my Stephen Drew autographed baseball quite a bit, being a huge FSU fan. I want to get JD's and then display them together.

I have a bunch of this guy right now:

Bought another one of those x's (bottom one) lately, but didn't scan it yet. They're arguably my favorite, because they're a decent stack of cash. I have lots of interest in his progression, of course. Milledge's stuff was ice cold until around this summer...due to a rough start. His cards are beginning to heat back up again.

I have a very cool story to tell as well. My mother was invited as a special guest to the 2006 NFL Hall of Fame induction, and she took me along. I was only 10 at the time, but I was an avid memorabilia collector. Before we left, I bought an official NFL football, and a Joe Montana authentic jersey (I am a 49er fan and he was being inducted that year). Throughout the next four days, we went to all of the ceremonies and parties involved, and at the actual induction after party, I was able to sit in a room with over 50 previous hall of famers. On my official NFL signed football, I recieved the signatures of over 20 hall of famers such as Joe Montana, Gale Sayers, Ronnie Lott, Bob Lilly, Franco Harris, and many more. I also got my Joe Montana jersey signed and I purchased a raiders helmet and had it signed by Howie Long. I also purchased a 2000 HoF induction helmet and had it signed by the four main players inducted that year: Joe Montana, Franco Harris, Ronnie Lott, and Howie Long.
