    Ok, it's finally happened, I'm going to be going through boxes of my GATOR memorabilia collected over the past 40 + years;and, gasp I have to dispose of it.What I want to do is get some ideas from those of you who have gone through this exercise as to how you got rid of your "Gator Treasures"? Did you just throw the stuff in the dumpster,give it to the salvation army,to other Gator fans,sell some of the items? What are some other ideas? I've mostly got old programs,(some from the Ray Graves era) Vhs videos of games, and other various miscellaneous items.

    And yes guys, my wife finally succeeded in motivating my rear to commit this sacrilege!:whoa:

    There is only one step needed: divorce your wife for suggesting such a heinous crime :nervous smile:

    Wait!!

    First you must cleanse and appease. Then and only then can you toss your memorabilia.

    You must follow this to the letter:

    Gather all memorabilia that is to be disposed and arrange it into a pyramid in the center of a large heptadecagonaly shaped room. Next find a virgin. Once you've done this, sacrifice 6.5 chickens and pour their blood over said memorabilia. Take that extra half chicken and cook up a nice Chicken Kiev. Divorce your wife. Serve the virgin the Kiev.

    Don't screw this up!

    I'd say send it to fellow GC members. I'll selflessly volunteer myself.

    I don't have any suggetions for you. I know it won't be easy letting your treasures go. If you can provide me a list of sorts I may be interested in taking some of the items off your hands. If you're wantiing to sell indicate it on your list and let's see if we can come to an agreement. PM me.

    To the best of my recollection , I have Galen Hall's autograph on a bumper sticker. I Also have Billy D's autograph but I can't recall if it's on a picture. To be honest until I go through it all I really don't know everything I have.

    I did this about 3 years ago. I went onto Swamp Gas and offered my stuff up. Three people PM'ed me. I divvied it up, boxed it up and sent it out. I failed to realize how much the postage would be. It cost me about $40 to give my stuff away; worth it though.
