Let's toss around some thoughts on memorabilia


The rarest baseball card is Honus Wagner, issued 1906 by the American Tobacco Company. This is considered the most valuable baseball card in existence. In 2000, the card was sold for $1.260.000.

Baseball-player Mark McGwire launched a record-shattering 70th home run during the 1998 season, the American sports world went berserk over the historic record. The auction bidding for the ball reached like ....high. The comic book maker T. MacFarlane paid $3,005,000 for this ball at an auction.

Let us now consider this... Imagine if there would have been one specific founder of Baseball and the world would have had a bat with that autograph on it?

Or even better, take a larger sport. Take Soccer or Golf? The founders signature on a Soccer ball or the name of Golfs founder on a Golf ball - knowing that autographs by Tiger Woods have earned some $ 2600 to its sellers...?

By now you should realize what is next here... ;-)

We love Minnesota!

Caution

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.

Also if you get addicted to this sport - do not blame us!
