Silent Auction Feature: Autographed Items

The DinoMights Silent Auction traditionally features autographed sports memorabilia. We have had some very fun items in the past. Especially if you are a Minnesota Sports fan. Here are a few things you can expect to find in this year's auction:

Phil Housley is considered one of the best American born Defensemen ever to play in the National Hockey League. He attended South St. Paul High School and then went on to play 21 years in the NHL. At the time of his retirement he was the highest scoring American born player in the history of the league. Today he is a coach at Stillwater High School, and he also is active in the community promoting youth hockey through the Phil Housley Foundation.

"Rod Carew lined, chopped and bunted his way to 3,053 career hits. His seven batting titles are surpassed only by Ty Cobb, Tony Gwynn and Honus Wagner, and equaled only by Rogers Hornsby and Stan Musial. He used a variety of relaxed, crouched batting stances to hit over .300 in 15 consecutive seasons with the Twins and Angels, achieving a .328 lifetime average. He was honored as American League Rookie of the Year in 1967, won the league MVP 10 years later and was named to 18 straight All-Star teams. He remains a national hero in Panama." --Baseball Hall of Fame Web site

There will be many more autographs in the auction as well as many more exciting items. Bidders stay tuned for more auction features!
