Micheal Phelps Becomes Most Accomplished Olympic Athlete in History

What started out as being a somewhat disappointing Olympics for Michael Phelps, he ended up setting a new record for most medals in history. Earlier today, he tied Larisa Latynina for the most Olympic medals in with 18, when he took home silver in the 200 Butterfly. He then followed that up about an hour later in the 4x200 Freestyle Relay. It was the 15th gold medal of his Olympic career, which extended his own record for the most gold medals.

Congrats Michael!

Ball Boys Sports Memorabilia Reality TV Show on ABC

I came across a new reality show today. It's called Ball Boys and it's on Saturday afternoons on ABC. It's about Robbie's First Base, a sports memorabilia store in Lutherville, Maryland. The show features Robbie Davis Sr., Robbie Jr. and the rest of the store's staff and there interactions between customers. Essentially, it's Pawn Stars with a sports memorabilia angle.

Today's show featured a game-worn Reggie White game-used Packers jersey and a base signed by Derek Jeter from his 3,000th hit game. The base was a birthday gift to Robbie Sr. If your a Yankee fan, you know that virtually everything related to Jeter goes through Steiner Sports. In order to get the base, Robbie Jr had to drive to the Steiner Sports warehouse, which gave viewers a small glimpse of just how much stuff Steiner owns.

I don't think this show will ever crack ABC's primetime television lineup, but if you're a sports memorabilia collector, it's worth checking out.

Brewers trade Zack Greinke to Los Angeles LA Angels

In a much anticipated move, the Milwaukee Brewers have traded their staff ace, Zack Greinke. He's going to the Los Angeles LA Angles in exchange for three the Angels prospects; shortstop Jean Segura and pitchers Johnny Hellweg and Ariel Pena.

Segura is was regarded as the 2nd best prospect in the Angels system (behind Mike Trout) and #55 in Baseball America's 2012 Top 100 Prospects and also played in the 2012 MLB All-Star Futures Game. Hellweg and Pena are also also among the Angels Top 10 Minor League Prospects.



Greinke won the 2009 American League Cy Young Award when he was with the Kansas City Royals. He is scheduled to make is first start on Sunday.

Former Chicago Sports Memorabilia Dealers Indicted for Defrauding Customers

The FBI released a report earlier today indicting former Chicago-based sports memorabilia dealers for allegedly defrauding bidders of both online and live auctions. The indictment involves former executives of the now defunct, Mastro Auctions. At one time, Mastro Auctions was one of the largest auction houses in the country before closing its doors in 2009. Check out more information at Autographmagazine.com.

Bucs and Bulls Heaven is Going Out of Business

I hate to be the bearer of bad news to Tampa Bay Buccaneers and USF Bulls fans, but as I was driving home from Busch Gardens yesterday and saw a Going Out of Business sign in front of the Bucs and Bulls Heaven store on Busch blvd.

There is a little bit of good news though. According to a Fox 13, the store will be CLOSED today and tomorrow, but they will RE-OPEN on Thursday August 26th for a STORE LIQUIDATION SALE!! This will certainly be a great time to stock up on your Tampa Bay Bucs and USF Bulls apparel and merchandise.




Bucs and Bulls Heaven used to be on N. Florida Avenue, but moved to 1418 E. Busch Blvd. back in March. It's on the north side of the road, just west of Busch Gardens.

Ichiro Suzuki Traded to the New York Yankees

After 11 1/2 seasons and 2,533 career hits with the Seattle Mariners, Ichiro Suzuki has been traded to the New York Yankees in exchange for a couple of minor league players. Ichiro, who turns 39 in October, should finish this season with about 2,600 hits and 450 stolen bases.

If Ichiro puts together just a few more good seasons, he has a pretty good shot at joining Paul Molitor, Honus Wagner, Eddie Collins, Ty Cobb, Lou Brock and Rickey Henderson as the only MLB players with 3,000 hits and 500 stolen bases. Not bad for a player whose MLB debut was at 27 years of age.

After the USFL folded, Kelly joined the Bills in 1986 and was immediately was named the starting QB. By 1987, Kelly was an NFL Pro Bowler.
