    In-game "Memorabilia" Collection/Archive

    Over the seasons, I've amassed somewhat of an in-game Hornets memorabilia collection since Season No. 1 in New Orleans. From Gametime programs (I've got a ton) to foam "wiggle sticks" to (not really in-game) promotional mail-outs w/ BD/Mashburn, etc. etc. Ideally, I had a project to have a Hornets man cave. Well, didn't happen...

    I recall someone having a New Orleans Jazz collection of such items and creating a website with pictures. Always thought that was cool. Before I trash all of this stuff, I'm wondering if anyone else has this kinda crap...er...collection? Anyone have any interest of maybe putting together a collaborative site to document/archive some of these items? With a name/culture-change on the horizon, might not be a bad thing to remember where we've been.

    Figured I'd ask before I start throwing...

    Sounds cool. I've got almost every bobblehead since the team moved here, the opening game ticket, some Hornets piggy bank, etc, I'll contribute.

    Actually one of the cooler items I have are these promotional mardi gras beads they gave out right after they moved here, but before the re-done logo was released. So it's basically the old, original Charlotte Hornets logo with New Orleans over it

    Every now and then I use my 32oz cup I got from a game and laugh because it's the one that features CP3, Peja, West, and Tyson.
    Now I do voice overs. Finally!

    so do you have video material/clips of the Hornets team that you could share with me? i'm mainly interested in actual stuff (HD clips from our new guys, but it also could be cool to have stuff from CP3, Dwest, Larry Johnson, Mourning, Curry, Bogues... if those are quality clips)

    I have some things. I HAD most of the bobble heads but sadly most of them have hit the ground. I have a lot of programs from years past. I still have the ticket from the first game I ever went to in the Arena (Detroit during the inaugural season) and I still have the program from the Miami playoff series during DWade's rookie year.

    Maybe we can use some of that junk in a Trew to the Game episode?

    So...I'm somewhat of a procrastinator. I still haven't trashed this stuff, but will do so soon. I estimate I have a rubbermaid container-worth of stuff.

    Any takers?

    Yes. You pay postage and it's all yours.

    It's going in Tuesday night's trash. So, let me know before then...
