Piggybacking off a thread below, I thought it'd be a good offshoot discussion.

Does anyone have anything that's really rare or unique or interesting?

My favorite item, which I'm sure many of you have, is a piece of the 1999 floor. They offered it up for sale as a plaque and someone got it for me as a gift. I like to think it's the part Langdon stumbled on right at the end.

Two items. One is a UConn-Yale football program from 1979 (when I was a baby). Mine's not autographed like the one below. But I like how crude the drawing of Musket-era Jonathan is, the artist was probably a Yalie and hopefully not a MFA student. Not super rare as you can find these on ebay sometimes.

The other memorabilia is a printed photo I took on my smartphone of the UConn-Michigan State jumbotron at MSG with the final score, framed with my ticket stub. Maybe the next time UConn makes a FF (hopefully soon) I'll be able to splurge on tickets/hotel and have another photo to frame.

I went to UConn basketball camp in 94 and 95 when I was 12/13 years old. At that time, Big Y (or another local supermarket, but I believe it was Big Y), issued UConn basketball cards of all the players and coaches. I met Ray Allen (and other players) at the camp and Ray, Rudy Johnson, etc. signed their cards. Calhoun also signed his card. Those camps were awesome..the guys ran pick up at night and went hard. To watch those teams go at it like that behind the scenes, at that age, was amazing.

They did those cards for a few years in the early 90's. I have a few somewhere in a shoebox. I need to dig them up.
I love my JC bobblehead which is displayed on my desk at work. Can't wait to get my KO one.

I have a ball autographed by Emeka and Ben and lots of other members of the 2004 Natl Championship team. If anyone would like it for a reasonable sum, please PM me.

I have the program from when they opened Gampel, a pair of JC bobbleheads, some media guides and a fair amount of autographed cards. The media guides I was going to sell on eBay after the new year.
My best possession is a shirt signed by Ray Allen with his "Ray of Light" charity name and logo on it.

I have VHS tapes of our first 2 national championships. (post game stuff from Channel 3 included)

I'd gladly give those up in exchange for a NC ring or a piece of the net. Let me know guys. :)

I still have my NIT t-shirt. It is packed lovingly away and might be in worse shape than I am...

I also have two binders full of the articles surrounding the first two championships. I believe they were compiled by some a s s hole from the Boneyard.

I have a few autographed basketballs. One is is signed by just Ray Allen. The other is signed by Ray Allen, Rudy Gay, Andre Drummond. I have a signed dollar bill from Ray Allen that I got when I was in 5th grade along with a photo of Ray and Kirk King when they visited the cafeteria one day at my elementary school. A framed 2014 NCAA tournament bracket and some trading cards that used to be handed out at some of the games.
