Oh, I want this but it’s a little pricey for my blood.   Recently offered up on eBay was this beauty:

1906 What you have here is a sign promoting a road trip to the 1906 game in Columbus against Ohio State.  $3.25 bought you a round trip train ride leaving at 7:40 a.m. from the Gandy Dancer, getting you back in town at 11:40 a.m. drenched in tobacco and alcohol.   I love it.

And yes, your beloved Yostmen returned home on that evening of October 20, 1906 the Victors, pulling out a 6-0 in Columbus.  A ruckus train ride no doubt ensued.

Some other wild stuff on eBay right now:

* A cane belonging 1896 Michigan center John Wombacher:

* Hit Telly Savalas, win a prize  – up for sale equipment allegedly discarded from the U-M weight room, WTF.

image I personally blame this thing for the 2011 Gator Bowl.

* Pink ShoelacesBreast cancer Denard helmet

* Also file under allegedly, Ron Kramer’s game pants?   If so, belong at Schembechler Hall not on the eBay:

  1. The breast cancer helmet would be better if it had a blue base, with pink wings. As it is, it looks like a Pepto-Bismol helmet.
