Re: Want to hear something really strange?

i believe it, why not, there still are good people in the world. For example our very own FirstDown offered me tickets to a preseason game, not just 1 or 2 but 4, very kind of him.

I doubt that anyone would do that to take 5 bucks and the risk is very small vs. the reward. My only rule, post a picture for us to see. I would like to see a signed belt.

I wonder if Ade Jimoh fan club will get anything real soon?

Re: Want to hear something really strange?

So....
I emailed the lady this before I went to the post office.
Quote:
I put the $5 inside of a small 6"X6"x6" box that is pre labled from her to me. I over wrapped the whole thing with brown paper and will mail it to her. All she need do is tear off the brown paper, put the belt inside and retape and take to post office. I wrote her a nice thank you on the envelope inside too.
She emailed me back:
Quote:
Thanks for making it so easy for her, Mike. I hope you're happy with what you get!!
$5.00 plus $1.52 to mail the box to return with belt. [Box was $1.25 too]

That's $6.25 I've invested in this and we will have to wait and see how it turns out.

~still thinks it's too strange not to be true
peace
mike

Re: Want to hear something really strange?

Ok, this is too cool. Not only is this not a scam to get my $5.00 for this one of a kind Belt Autographed by Sammy Baugh but the lady sent me back the change after shipping cost.

lol
Wow.
What arrived was a small lady's leather belt with "Sam Baugh" signed on the inside. The signature matches the way he signed his name back in the late 30's and early 40's.

I can only guess that he came to the store she [now 85 year old lady] was a very young lady in her late teens or early 20's. She must have taken off her own belt to get it signed as the belt shows wear marks.

The lady told me to enjoy this item but if I ever sell it to share the money with her. I will NEVER sell this and will get a disply bot for this one of a kind treasure.

Here is what arrived.


Close up of autograph


WOW


lol
Sorry we've already HAD dalASS

peace

I still think you're getting scammed.

Dip it in lemon juice and then iron it for 3 minutes. Then you'll know...

Re: Want to hear something really strange?

i saw it last night... very cool.

I was suprised how tiny the belt was though... she must have been VERY thin or something.
