Autographed Sports Items

Do you want to make a sports fan in your family more than happy – like to the moon and back happy? Thanks to now you can!

Did you see the autographed sports memorabilia up for auction on Name your favorite team – Chicago White Sox, Philadelphia Phillies, San Diego Padres, Oakland Athletics, Boston Red Sox, New York Yankees, Seattle Mariners, Los Angeles Dodgers or perhaps the Chicago Cubs. You name it and you just may be able to find the autographed sports item of your dreams.

I see auctions for a football helmet, baseballs, bats and even sports clothing, including replica jersey tops. Let’s take a look at some of these items.

Autographed baseballs

Did you know that the history of baseball goes back a long way? According to my research, baseball began around the mid-1800s by Abner Doubleday in Cooperstown, New York.

The first official game of baseball took place in 1846 in Hoboken, New Jersey. However, the first professional baseball team that was established was in Cincinnati, and they were called the Red Stockings.

More about the game of football

According to my research, in 1823 during a school football match, a student named William Webb Ellis is said to have first picked up the ball and run with it, and thus he created a new style of play, where picking the ball up and running with it was preferred over kicking it.

On Nov. 6, 1869, Rutgers and Princeton played the first ever a college soccer football game. The game used modified London Football Association rules. During the next seven years, rugby gained favor with the major eastern schools over soccer, and modern football began to develop from rugby.
