C-bay

Thats right folks, welcome to Cowley-bay, where sports writer Joe Cowley auctions off junk from his Chicago condo at low, low prices.

Todays item is a real beauty a gem for any real baseball fan.

Thanks to the call-up of outfielder DeWayne Wise on Tuesday, the full pull-out poster of Brad Big Country Eldred that ran in the Tribune a few weeks ago is now obsolete and a sure collectors item. OK, the author of that fine piece was completely wrong, but the premise was so funny looking back on it, who wouldnt want their very own Eldred picture which by the way was larger than a Fathead wall hanging splattered on their wall?

Opening bid is $2,500, and I pay the shipping.
