I saw that Rory's golf ball that he threw into the stands right after he won the British Open is up for auction, and is likely to sell for thousands of dollars.
That seems kind of excessive, to me. I like to collect souvenirs of my travels and experiences, but I would never even consider buying something like this.
My mementos tend to have personal attachment to them, like golf balls or yardage books from courses I've played or game pucks that I picked up. I do not own, for example, dirt from the mound at the old Yankees Stadium, and I wouldn't want a homerun ball unless I caught it. There is no appeal to me to own an object from an event that I wasn't even at.
Thoughts? Anybody else collect memorabilia?
