Want to hear something really strange?
 
I was PM'd the other day here on this site by a lady who found me to give me something.

An autographed belt signed by Sammy Baugh back in the late 1930's or early 1940's. The lady said her 85 year old aunt got him to sign it when he came to here store way back when.

They are packing up the dear older lady's stuff to go to a thrift store but wanted a fan to have this unique item. They googled "Sammy Baugh, Fan" and it led them here to me. She joined and PM'd me with the free offer. I'll be mailing her an evelope and about $5 for shipping and she's gonna send it to me. If it's a scam it's the wierdist one I ever heard of.

Is that wild or what?

I'm in Nags Head, NC right now but will be home tomorrow and get that out to her. I'll keep you posted as to how this turns out.

Autographed Leather Belt by Sammy Baugh.

Hmmmm?

Cool and THANKS to those nice ladies!!!

peace

Hate to say, but I would say it sounds like a scam. Granted, for 5 clams it's probably worth the risk if it turns out to be legit, just seems random as hell. For your sake though, I hope it works out. Good luck!

That's a ton of trouble for $5 but you could be right.
I'm gonna risk it...what the heck. If it is what it's said to be it's a 1 of a kind I bet.

Signed leather belt?

Like I said I'll keep ya'll posted.

peace

Well worth the risk, if it turns out to be legit that's a real find!

We should have a poll to see who thinks its a scam or not. I vote no because its only for five dollars and how many Sammy Baugh fans could you track down to get only five bucks from, But on the other hand she could be doing this for alot of different player and its worth five bucks to take the risk.

I would vote no scam, since you are pretty much limited to one scam per forum. Plus, other than to longtime Skins fans, Sammy Baugh is a pretty obscure reference. Then again, these scammers can be pretty smart.

Good luck!

Fact I bet is stranger than fiction.
I bet $5 this turns out to be legit.

That would make it a one of a kind item I would treasure and never sell.

We'll see!
lol

It's not a scam for $5. What is this person trying to get rich $5 at a time? Send the 5 and if you don't get the belt just skip tomorrows mcdonalds value meal and your all square again...

Seems like to much effort to be a scam.

Re: Want to hear something really strange?
 
its not a scam, if so i think they could fetch more than 5$, cause you know thats a pretty nice item for an old-school skin's fan.

[quote]Mike -

$5 is plenty. My aunt is very excited to send the belt to you.

We found you by googling Sammy Baugh fan, which led us to your warpath.net site, which led us to you. I guess descriptive names really pay off!

Sweet!
I had asked her how she found me and was right about googling "Sammy Baugh Fan".
lol

Thanks again miss new Warpath member lady!

How cool is that. I hope you get the belt Sammy Baugh fan. I really doubt it's a scam. And if it is for 5 bucks who cares.

Maybe I should call myself "Joe Theismann fan" and hope that someone will send me his old one bar face mask helmet some day.

BTW I saw Joe's helmet on ebay a while back. Apparently one of Joe T's x-wives got hold of it and sold it. I wanted it so bad..but the seller wanted thousands for it. The listing went unsold and never was relisted as far as I know.

I've heard of an autographed jersey, helmet, t-shirt, etc... but a BELT??! WTF?! How random is that? Did he win a WWF match?

Oh, when you get a chance send me $5 and I'll send you some Sammy Baugh autographed suspenders. Pleasures all mine.
