I've got a personalized limited edition poster from George Brett. I helped him out when he was buying a house about 20 yrs ago and he called me and asked if he do anything to say thanks. Anyway, it says "My best wishes and thanks for everything...George Brett."

Wow, that's some pretty cool stuff. I'd have to say my most valuable memorabilia is a 1998 NLDS shirt with every Astro's autograph

i would have to say when i went up to cooperstown during hall of fame weekend and i got a ball signed by don larsen (threw a perfect game in the series) i treasure that ball. although my rj autographed jersey is a fine item as well.

Value: Either the Mickey Mantle autographed painting I have (1 of 675). Bought for $200 in 1989, now it's about $2,000. Also have about 20 Ken Griffey Jr. Rookie cards

Nostalgia: World Series program from the Dodgers vs. the Yankees I think, mid 1960's (not sure of the exact date, it's in a box somewhere).

I feel sorry for you. As a former baseball card collector, I feel sorry. Those used to be worth so much money. and then the injuries plagued him :,-(. its a shame

I also have somewhere near 20 Griffey rookie cards...oh well...

I have no idea because I haven't looked at their worth in a couple years, but my most valuable card may be an autographed Juan Gonzalez rookie or one of my Bonds rookies.

My favorite piece of memorabilia although probably far from being the most expensive is an autographed photo of Louis Aparicio in mid-air turning two.
