(SeattlePI)   What do you mean this may not really be THE baseball that Hank Aaron used when he gave Elvis a haircut in the lunar module causing Nixon to resign and giving John Elway's father certain "urges"?   (seattlepi.com) divider line 42

These were hot a couple of years ago, but the economy has totally dragged the value down. It's gonna sit on my shelf a long time. I'll give you like 20 bucks for it.

If there were any chance that that baseball were responsible for the conception of John Elway, I would pay whatever the seller asked for it, take it to the deepest forest and burn it so that it could never, ever hurt my people again.

There is something wrong with the world that this crime carries a higher penalty than most classes of rape...

Yeah, but a world where you could spend $1M on a baseball card without being sure it was real... is that a world you WANT to live in?

This is fact and cannot be disputed.

I had an uber-geeky friend who was proud to show off a thermal detonator and a ba'atleth that he
said were both actually used on their respective shows.

He seemed so happy to have them that I just had to bite my tongue.

I don't understand why anyone collects baseball cards anymore. The Trillions of real one and the Googleplex of fake ones means that NONE of them are worth what anyone says they are worth. It's interesting that both baseball cards and comic book companies both decided to cut their own throats in the 80's and 90's with all their "Collector" editions and the like. Flooded the market and killed their own golden goose. Yet everyone still seems to think that THEIR copy of the death of Phoenix is still worth something.

Not as rich as if the ticket were unused.

The last time I had my 04/04/1974 stubs looked at (about 15 years ago), the guy offered $15. He said that intact ones were about $500. He guess that there might be 2-300 legitamite unused ones out there and a lot of fakes.

They tried to give me 30 years for raping a mailbox. In my defense, it was a 30th Anniversary R2-D2 mailbox.

It's T206, not T260. As a middle aged white guy who collects such things, they are very cool imo. Just recently finished the set of 520, which is about as far as a person of ordinary means can hope to get.

You're trolling. Aaron Rodgers is the best qb right now, but it's a little early to call him the greatest ever.

You're trolling. Aaron Rodgers is the best qb right now, but it's a little early to call him the greatest ever.

Most Touchdowns per touch by a QB with at least 20 total touchdowns, season: 1 per 11.7 touches, Aaron Rodgers, 2011, 48 total touchdowns on 562 total touches(45 passing, 3 rushing)

Highest passer rating, career: 104.1, Aaron Rodgers, 2005-present

Highest passer rating, season: 122.5, Aaron Rodgers, 2011

Most seasons, 120+ passer rating (min. 100 attempts): 1, Peyton Manning, 2004; Aaron Rodgers 2011

Highest post-season passer rating, career (min. 200 attempts): 105.5, Aaron Rodgers, 2005-present

Most Seasons, 45+ Touchdown Passes, 1, Dan Marino, 1984; Peyton Manning, 2004; Tom Brady, 2007; Drew Brees 2011; Aaron Rodgers, 2011 (Only played 14 full games)

Most Consecutive Games, 2+ Touchdown Passes 13, Don Meredith, 1965-1966; Peyton Manning, 2004; Tom Brady, 2010-2011, Aaron Rodgers 2011

Most Touchdown Passes per Games Started Average, Regular Season 2.13, Aaron Rodgers, (132 TD Passes/62 Games Started), 2008-Present

Most Consecutive Playoff Games, 3+ Touchdown Passes 3, Bernie Kosar, 1988-1990; Kurt Warner 2009-2010; Aaron Rodgers 2010-2011

Best touchdown pass-interception ratio, career: 3.47-1 (132-38) Aaron Rodgers, 2005-present

Best passing yards-interception ratio, career: 457.0-1 (17,366-38) Aaron Rodgers, 2005-present

Lowest percentage passes had intercepted career: 1.80 Aaron Rodgers 2005-2011


At a time when passing in the NFL is at the highest point ever, Aaron Rodgers is dominating the record books. Any comparison to pre-80's QBs is moot due to rule changes and the level of competition. You could argue convincingly that Steve Young was as good/slightly better at this point in his career, but if Rodgers can continue his average level of play for the next 5 years, he will be cemented as the greatest NFL QB ever. (To that point in time. Obviously, I am not saying that there will never be anyone better)

Johnny Unitas couldn't read a modern playbook, much less run an offense in today's NFL.

One of my favorite old SNL skits was one where an appraiser comes to an old ramshackle trailer where the family tells them they have all sorts of super-valuable items, like a stradivarius violin, the hope diamond, car kennedy was shot in, etc. The appraiser (maybe ackroyd?) then points out that everything's phony. Loved that sketch as a kid and even though I've looked, haven't ever been able to find it online now.
