    Thanks @psj!

    There are a few more game used items on the way, but this is the big one. This jersey was originally sold by Steiner, along with its 2010 counterpart, for $600 each. At that point I photomatched it for the original purchaser to a home run. The jersey resurfaced last month on eBay, where it sold for less than 1/3 the original price.

    This jersey is from the 2009 Civil Rights Game against the White Sox, and is a 1964 throwback. Gomes was 1 for 2 with a two-run home run (pictured below) and a walk.

    This player is garbage, I don't understand why anyone would want this.

    For reals - I was shocked to see the 2 artifacts drop, so close to each other too. Was wondering why they went so high- this explains it. I think I have one, will try to post a pic.

    Beats me Jeff, unless it's for the museum of failed prospects.

    I'm guessing the first Artifacts led the other out? The seller of the second accepted my BO immediately after the first one (auction) ended, at the same price, so he was definitely watching it.

    Definitely post a pic if you can find it.



    Getting a bit into the absurd here, for for $14.50, why not. Everything below was included in the lot, so signed ball/8x10/card, along with the "game used" shorts. Unless Gomes went Michael Jordan style on the shorts (or conjured up the '76 White Sox) it's doubtful they saw anything other than warmups.

    Next week: a Jonny Gomes game used left sock! (joke)

    This is from set issued by the Durham bulls in 2007 to commemorate their 10th year as a AAA team. Despite being a decade old, and containing two players I collect (Gomes and Matt Diaz), I didn't have any idea it existed until it appeared on eBay a few weeks ago. The set has 20 cards, including players (and a manager) from a variety of years. The full list:

    Delmon Young
    Brooks Badeaux
    Randy Winn
    Mickey Callaway
    Lee Gardner
    Jonny Gomes
    Jason Standridge
    Carl Crawford
    Jeff Niemann
    Lance Carter
    Aubrey Huff
    Matt Diaz
    Steve Cox
    Kevin Witt
    Toby Hall
    Bill Evers
    B. J. Upton
    Jason Smith
    Rocco Baldelli
    Ryan Jackson

    Nice one @bongo870
    @r2d2 I'd take Cantu over Upton any day.

    Just received Gomes's 2012 Oakland A's cap. His hats tend to be pretty cool with the inscriptions he writes inside. Here, they are "ZPG CJG xoxo 31" (initials of his daughters), and then, above an "RIP" inscription, are "APW" (Adam Westcott, high school friend who died in a car crash), "BCL" (Bob Leslie, high school baseball coach who died of mouth cancer), and "UJ" (Uncle Jim).

    The first two of these showed up shortly after Triple Threads was released in 2006, but the last one took a decade to end up where it belongs. Couldn't buy it quickly enough.

    And newly arrived, 3/3:

    10 years ago the Durham bulls sold off some of their inventory of game used jerseys at their store, informing fans the day in advance. I convinced my dad to ride over and check them out, and we arrived in the afternoon. The Bulls had sold their Gomes home jersey at that point, but still had the alternate/BP jersey, which we bought. Shortly thereafter the jersey showed up in someone's blog (found while searching for Gomes items on Google Images), and I've been emailing him once or twice a year since. He just got a Fulbright scholarship that's taking him to Mexico for a year, so he's now cleaning out the house...

    Pretty cool to track something down after nearly a decade. Not to mention how sick this jersey is! An early MiLB Gomes piece, International League 125th anniversary patch, flag patch, and the seller even got it signed in 2009 at a Cubs/Reds game.
