Back in early 2011 Shannon ran a “contest” (the only prize was bragging rights) to crown the King of Piazza – defined as the person with the biggest/coolest Mike Piazza themed collection. The winner (and as far as I know still KoP) was Brian. Below was his submission
Alright, Shannon. It’s time for me to step up and claim my spot as King Piazza.
Here is a Mike Piazza photobucket album (http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v59/baymenxpac/Piazza/) dedicated to my submission. I don’t want to inundate your inbox with a ton of attachments. So here goes:
Included is: my Piazza jersey collection: Authentic snow white and road black Diamond Collection. All Star Batting Practice jerseys from 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2004 (I missed 2002 and my 2005 — his last All Star season as a Met — I got Beltran instead). It also is about to include a 1997 Florida Marlins authentic Piazza jersey. Waiting on that to come back from the stitcher.
From the novelty collection: Some Generation Piazza literature, Piazza pennant, a signed Piazza picture and a Piazza game used bat piece. Also some really cool unique stuff like my 2000 NL Champs 22 kt gold cards, my Piazza bobbleheads and statue and something kind of cool a random: sketches from a sketchbook I did in the summer of 1999 (I was in 9th grade at the time, so obviously the artistry isn’t the BEST).
Not pictured is my yet to arrive Piazza Marlins jersey, my Piazza All Star hats from 1999-2001 and my Piazza garbage can.
Let me know how I stack up. I’m not sure if I’m forgetting anything, but….if I am I’ll send it over.
