Project Object #19: Pine Valley Golf Club New Jersey Logo Wilson 432 Ultra 1 Golf Ball – One Ball

February 13, 2017

This item came from Em’s dad. After a life changing event, his belongings were shoved into his car and transported to his brother’s land. Last spring, we cleaned out the car as it slowly metamorphosed into part of the landscape in the baking Lower Alabama sun. The majority of the stuff we sold at a garage sale in East Brewton, AL in spring 2016 and donated the left overs to three Brewton thrift stores. Prime pieces and unique items were picked to keep or sell on ebay and other venues. This item was one of those pieces. I listed it on ebay in a seven day auction with a starting bid of $4. It sold with 5 bids for $5.57 and shipped to Pennsylvania.

Project Object #18: Vintage 1995 O.J. Simpson Trial “Guilty or Not” T-Shirt – XL 100% Cotton

February 13, 2017

This item was bequeathed to me by my sister. It was picked from a coastal Texas thrift store and listed on ebay for a very high price, which was never met. After it was given to me, I listed it on ebay at a more marketable price. I listed it in a ten day auction with a starting bid price of $19.99. It sold with three bids for $21.59 and shipped to its new owner in Chicago.

Growing up in Buffalo, NY in the 1970s, I learned to admire O.J. and his feats on the football field with the Buffalo Bills. This admiration evolved with The Naked Gun. Later in life, as a Houston Rockets fan, reality struck hard as the white bronco preempted the Rockets/Knicks NBA Championship series. A morbid pop culture phenomenon unfolded as media continued its decline into “reality” infotainment and dystopian cult of personality morphed into post modern America….this pre-owned but crisp and clear T-shirt is a reminder of this disturbing historical legacy.
