One more day of memorabilia for a great cause

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Nov 30, 2010 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

I mentioned this over the weekend, but I want to mention it again because tomorrow is the final day of the auction, and all of the proceeds are going to a really great cause.

Trenton’s clubhouse and equipment manager Tom Kackley is running his annual auction to support the domestic violence shelter in his home town of Canton, Ohio. It’s a cause that means a lot to Tom, and he’s put some considerable effort into making a difference.

The auction is run through ebay, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the Domestic Violence Project, Inc. in Canton.

The auction itself has signed items from current Yankees, Hall of Famers and elite prospects. There are plenty of big names both in and out of the Yankees organization, with items ranging from signed baseballs and pictures to game-used equipment.

Check out the auction right here. Good stuff and a great cause.

    GB,

    What did they do with all that money?

    ———————————————————————————————————————-

    SAS, As far as Mays goes, his ex-wife got most of it. Mantle just wasted a lot of his. Only when memorabilia hit big did he finally become wealthy. Williams invested in Sears, DiMaggio had every dime he made. Musial has worked as a VP with St. Louis for 47 years.

    Ray, doing pretty fair. Thanks for asking. When you lose the wait after the holidays and finish being santa?s helper, you?ll have to return and help me keep Tandy, maine and MTU in check.

    Thanks GB! LOL! Thanks SAS! Sounds like a lot of lumps of coal to divy out!

    This post has nothing to do with Derek Jeter ;)

    Just a general thought or word of advice.

    When a person approaching retirement wants to and believes they can still work for X number of years longer and their employer tells them we want to buy you out or plan a retirement package when you turn a certain age which is less than X, the employee generally does not see this as a nice gesture or take too kindly to it.

    So, if anyone here is considering any particular situation in which you believe someone should do something of the sort as a nice or generous act, I would recommend rethinking that position.

    For those that have never seen the full game and have a strong stomach, in mid December, MLB-TV is playing for the first time ever, Game 7 of the 1960 WS. Watch for Mantle’s 9th inning base running play. also, it was Gil McDougald’s last ML game.

  6. GreenBeret7 November 30th, 2010 at 7:32 pm

    Ray, I had to disguise Randy’s name because he gets cranky when I talk about him.

    Don’t go overboard with the coal to him. i was going to send him one of my twins’ special diapers.

  7. Betsy November 30th, 2010 at 7:35 pm

    Yank1, I agree………we never get home-town discounts like other clubs do.

  8. BIG AL November 30th, 2010 at 7:43 pm

    I still don’t understand some people on here not understanding the fact that it does not matter if the Yankees triple their income, they are a business, and do not want an open ended ceiling on how much they pay their players. And, it does matter if they pay an additional $20M to a player, for within their budget, it allows less to be spent on other needs the team has. The Yankees are sick of paying an outrageous amount in luxury tax, which in turn pays their competitions salary. Why is that so difficult to understand? Just because a company makes huge profits, does not mean each employee should expect to be paid beyond their fair market value.

    Please tell me the last time players on a team that was struggling to survive, took pay cuts, did not jump ship for greener pastures, or were willing to forgo a raise.

    This is the Maseroski game no?

    Probably should be considered required viewing for the faint of heart. 50 years later and somehow the Yankee organization survived.

    Maybe they could make a nice Xmas set along with 2001 game 7.

    BIG AL – Jeter is not the one to start that new-found austerity program with. They didn’t do it with his peers, Posada and A-Rod. The Yankees had $441 million in revenues last year, I believe that is approximately $170 million more than the next franchise.

    This is a one-time deal to end things in a positive, good feeling manner with the face of the franchise. He will keep making the Yankees money after he retires, they will still sell tons of Jeter jerseys and memorabilia and the YES network will be showing Jeter’s Yankeeography for the next 50 years and selling advertising for it.

    Some of you old-timers in here might appreciate this clip from the old-timers over at the “It Is High” blog.

    It’s a clip from The Phil Silvers Show with Yogi, Gil, White and Phil.

    gb7-

    i’m amazed how intelligent people who have the ability to reason and be rational have so little ability to imagine different scenarios.

    there is no set ending scenario to jeter’s free agency.

    people who are rigid in their thinking can only imagine one ending . the brewers couldn’t imagine molitor leaving. molitor did not do what they thought he would do. he sent a letter to every team saying he was actually available.

    reports say jeter and close are meeting this week.
    it would be a lack of imagination to think they only have one option.

  14. Bronx Jeers November 30th, 2010 at 7:55 pm

    * That’s Whitey as in Ford.

    Roy White was not there.

  15. GreenBeret7 November 30th, 2010 at 8:00 pm

    Yeah, B. Jeers…sadly it is Maz’s game. The interesting part is how early and how often Stengel had Ralph Terry heating up in the pen. He was gassed by the 9th inning.

    Arod# 7 on the all time 3 rd basemen list…..pretty good considering he’s also on the all time SS list as well.

  25. pat November 30th, 2010 at 8:11 pm

    Tejada- 1/$6.5 with 500K in possible incentives.

  26. BIG AL November 30th, 2010 at 8:12 pm

    WCYF -

    I know you support Jeter, which is fine, I also care about him as a player.

    There does get to be a point where any organization must draw the line, you just can’t hand your player a blank check, and ask him to fill it out.

    If the best middle IF is being paid $12.5 M, how can anyone believe Jeter is being disrespected by being offered $2.5M over that player. Perhaps, Jeter is the one being disrespectful of the Yankees. He played hard ball to get his 10 year deal, and once more the Yankees overpaid, but were happy to do so at that point in his career. You keep referring to the money the Yankees make, as if the players should be allowed to gauge as much they can because of it. The Yankees do have a budget, regardless of income, because they do not, and should not, continue to supplement other teams income through the luxury tax, it’s crazy, paying $75M in tax. Given your thinking, when Cano, Tex and others come up for a new contract, they can point to how important they’ve been to the teams success and image, and demand to be over paid, I do not agree. Most of these players are successful do to the fact the Yankees surround them with other great players.

    In 1931 Babe Ruth made $80K, in 1961 Mickey Mantle made $100K, these guys were underpaid, given what they brought to the game.

    I’d love to see MLB change the rules and not allow players contracts to go beyond 3 years, then you’d see players working harder for the next contract, like players had to do, when they played each year for next years contract.

    Players with long contracts never give back when they don’t perform, but, they want the world if they have 1 or 2 good years.

    Jeter has had a great career as a Yankee, but, he is never going to be a Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, or Mickey Mantle.

  27. GreenBeret7 November 30th, 2010 at 8:13 pm

    Randy, it is shocking that some people are upset that jeter actually has the nerve to find out what other teams think of him. The chance of him leaving the yanks are slim, but, he has earned that right. I laugh when people call him ungreatful and a money grubber but can’t wait for the Yanks to raid other teams for the best talent. Their reasoning is because they have the money to do it. jeter’s been trashed so far, but, if he leaves, that trashing will be nothing compared to what it will be.

    as I’ve been saying….I don’t care what he gets. I just want to see him end in NY. He’s not done amazing quite yet. As for other teams, somebody else will be seriously interested, but, I believe he returns.

    By the way, they are having Prime 8 3rd basemen. Rodriguez was #7. It still disgusts me that Ron Santo isn’t in the HOF.

  28. disco stu November 30th, 2010 at 8:17 pm

    I saw a brief clip of the Game 7 1960 telecast on the MLB promo … a quick shot just as Mazeroski was hitting the home run … the angle was from behind the pitcher … so the camera was out beyond center field. If no other reason, I can’t wait to see the replay of the game because I don’t believe I have ever seen film of Mickey Mantle hitting thru the lens of the center field camera. That should be cool to see.

    Agreed. It still amazes me how people always drooled @ ron cey. He was good, but not HOF GOOD. jmo

  30. Bronx Jeers November 30th, 2010 at 8:18 pm

    I think I learned about that infamous game from the movie “A Bronx Tale” when the kid tells his gangster/benefactor that he hates Maseroski because he made Mickey Mantle cry.

    And then the gangster tells the kid that he shouldn’t worry about Mickey Mantle because Mantle’s not going to help his father put food on the table if money’s tight.

  31. pat November 30th, 2010 at 8:21 pm

    Well, at least they are talking again.

    Derek Jeter and his agent, Casey Close, met with Yankees executives in Tampa on Tuesday.

    As of 7:45 p.m. ET, it is not known whether the sides were still meeting or which Yankees officials were in attendance. But any sitdown with Jeter figured to include owner Hal Steinbrenner and general manager Brian Cashman.

    Nice move by Rockies keeping Tulo away from Yanks 3 years from now.

  33. GreenBeret7 November 30th, 2010 at 8:23 pm

    When Santo was playing, only 1 3rd baseman in history had more homers that Santo. Eddie Matthews. Top 4 in hits and RBI, 5 Gold Gloves. he was a horse and did it with diabetes when they didn’t have pumps. The writers, like with Blyleven and a couple of others should be stripped of all voting privileges.

  34. Tom in N.J. November 30th, 2010 at 8:23 pm

    I read somewhere that it’s Santo’s away splits that are keeping him out of the HoF.

  35. BIG AL November 30th, 2010 at 8:26 pm

    Good night folks.

  36. West Coast Yankee Fan November 30th, 2010 at 8:29 pm

    Big Al – thanks for the thoughtful and well reasoned post. I guess we just see it differently.

    There may be a point where any organization must draw the line, I just believe Derek Jeter is not the guy to do that with. I said I would be fine giving him the three years for $45 million. But give him a severance/gold watch one time only payment of $25 million.

    I just do not believe this conversation should involve a comparative analysis of any other shortstop or player for that matter. Derrek Jeter is unique for all the reasons that have been mentioned countless times over.

    Where we really disagree is when you comment that, “Jeter has had a great career as a Yankee, but, he is never going to be a Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, or Mickey Mantle”.

    I just could not disagree more. I think Derek Jeter is on a par with all those Yankee icons. His beyond impeccable reputation, on-field performance, world championships, future retired number, plaque in Monument Park and unanimous, first-ballot election to the Hall of Fame say that he is.

  37. GreenBeret7 November 30th, 2010 at 8:31 pm

    Great stuff on Prime 9. Best sliders

    Kind of strange first reporter states both sides met…. Then says it is not known whether Yankee officials were in attendance. Any one else see a problem with this
