They Tweeted It … Joe Orlando & one big Peyton Manning card

 

 

Sometimes a big sale speaks for itself, but a PSA 10 copy of one of Peyton Manning‘s top autographed Rookie Cards might say even more.

That’s not a typo — $52,580 for a card that’s less than 20 years old. (Not bad.)

max-scherzer-tweet

So … that almost happened.

Max Scherzer tweeted the image above Wednesday night, proving that he’s capable of putting up a save, too. A second tweet showed some “dirty” purses in the trash — but there’s been no word on any offseason Disabled List stops for the Nationals ace … yet.

They Tweeted It … Starting Lineup will return sometime soon

 

 

Update: They will be returning as a stadium giveaway of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers during a game this season, according to this story from ESPN.

They tweeted it … Atlanta Braves bobblehead promotion revisits Chipper Jones’ biggest save

Braves

 

 

The Atlanta Braves may need some rescuing by the end of this season, but at least there will be one promotional game on the calendar that can take some of the sting away from a bad season.

On May 28, the first 20,000 fans into the park will receive a “Chipper rescues Freddie” ATV bobblehead re-creating a moment from the January 2014 winter storm that left countless people stranded around Atlanta. One of those stranded was first baseman Freddie Freeman, who was rescued by past Brave and future Hall of Famer Chipper Jones.

It was a tale seen by many on Twitter and one apparently memorable and odd enough to get fans back to the park.

They Tweeted It … Antonio Brown

 

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown will be trading in his cleats for Dancing With the Stars soon and that’s perhaps what prompted this tweet on Thursday.

Or maybe he’s just taking over the Skittles beat from the retired Marshawn Lynch?

Sorta legit collecting question: What might something like this sell for at auction if “show-used”?
