5. Framed Jackie Robinson TIME Magazine Cover
One of the greatest players of all time, Jackie Robinson, graced the cover of TIME in this September 22, 1947 edition of the weekly print magazine.

Matted and framed, it’s a refined piece that’ll be a nice addition to an existing art collection, adding a bit of a sporty feel for a nice change of pace.
6. Vintage Coca-Cola Baseball Advertisement
Just as much a part of sports as the game itself, Coca-Cola has been a mainstay of entertainment and leisure for decades. However, there’s something inherently American about including baseball and Coke together, making this old framed ad great for lovers of all things retro. The ad features portraits of several Hall of Fame baseball players including Miller Huggins, Eddie Collins, Connie Mack and John McGraw. Looking at it is almost enough to make your mouth water for that classic red can.
7. Ryan Howard Autographed Baseball
Phillies fans (or perhaps, Phanatics) will fondly remember slugger and first baseman Ryan Howard. The Big Piece played for Philly’s finest for a significant portion of his career, winning the MVP Award in 2006 and achieving All-Star status three separate times. Of course, he was also a part of the 2008 World Series-winning team. This signed Rawlings ball also comes with a hologram sticker to help authenticate that it’s a real original.
8. Mike Ditka and Eric Dickerson Signed Official NFL Football
Signed by Hall of Famers Mike Ditka and Eric Dickerson, this is official Wilson NFL football is one longtime NFL fans are not going to want to miss.

Dickerson played (mostly famously) running back for the LA Rams, while also playing for the Colts, Raiders, and Falcons. This ball is a chance to bring home some signed swag from two of the sport’s best and brightest.
9. Steve Carlton Autographed Baseball
Another Phillies legend, Steven Carlton played for the team for most of the 1970s and 1980s where he led the team to their 1980 World Series win. Additionally, Carlton was the first pitcher to win four Cy Young Awards in baseball, placing him in a certain rarefied air among his peers. Finally, the ball comes with protective, high-quality glass to ensure it’s safe and sound in your collection.
