Game Used Greatness: Marshawn Lynch 2009 Breast Cancer Awareness Week Game Used Cleats

I guess it's appropriate I'm on a football roll since we are only a week away from the Super Bowl. I only have one other pair of game used shoes (Carmelo Anthony), so it's not often I add these to my collection but I couldn't pass up a pair cleats worn by one of the best running backs in the game today. Also, being the Breast Cancer Awareness cleats is extra special as well. These are actually from Marshawn's days as a Bill. Comes with a COA from NFL Auctions and PSA/DNA. Here are some more pics!

Game Used Greatness: Dez Bryant 2012 Game Worn Jersey PSA/DNA NFL Auctions Certified

I'm on a roll with Dallas Cowboys Game Used items this year.  First the Ware jersey, then the Football from the Seahawks game, and now this. A Dez Bryant Game Used Jersey that I won on NFL Auctions. Dez wore this in the heartbreaking loss to the Giants on October 28th. It's pounded with use and comes with a LOA from PSA/DNA and the NFL. Definitely the new centerpiece of my Dallas Cowboys Collection! Here are additional pics!

Game Used Greatness:11-6-11 Cowboys vs Seahawks Game Used Football Steiner Hologram

I don't have a ton of equipment used memorabilia. A few baseballs, and now this. This to me though, is no ordinary football. This ball is special for more than a few reasons. First of all of course it came from a Dallas Cowboys game. Not just any Dallas Cowboys game though, one that me and my dad went to.

That's the main reason I wanted this ball. What an awesome keepsake to have by having a ball used in the game that we went to see. It was our 2nd Cowboys game of the season that we went to (Monday Night Redskins game that season being the 1st) and we also went to see the Ring Of Honor Celebration. Drew Pearson, Charles Haley, and Larry Allen were getting inducted at halftime of this game. It made this game that much more special.
When I saw this on Ebay, I had to get this. It's also Steiner Certified with their hologram and matching LOA. The best part of it all, the Cowboys won, and me and my dad are 2-0 when going to Cowboys games. Maybe we should've gone to some this year??? Here are some more pics of the ball.

Game Used Greatness: 2006 DeMarcus Ware Game Used Jersey

One thing I've always wanted in my collection was a game used jersey from my favorite sports team The Dallas Cowboys. I don't have many football jerseys to begin with(just Torry Holt and Jason Taylor) so I thought it'd be very hard to find one. Well, lo and behold I found one. DeMarcus Ware is a sure fire hall of famer and one of the only bright spots on a pretty dreadful defense. This jersey is a 2006 and is pounded with use. You can see staining on the front numbers and back, and also hit and pull marks. It's certified by Steiner Sports who have an agreement with the Dallas Cowboys for their memorabilia. Here are additional pics!
