Sapp's fan letters up for auction

Postby Santacruzer » Wed Apr 20, 2005 3:00 pm

This is just wrong if you ask me. Imagine some kid who sends his Idol a letter, to have it end up in some grubby collection.

Warren Sapp never mails it in.

Letters his fans sent, however, might become the latest in fetish memorabilia.

A Florida company has a 5-pound box of unopened mail sent by fans of the former Buccaneer, The Tampa Tribune reported in Wednesday's editions.

Kincaid Auction Co. will sell materials from PSC Collectibles, a sports memorabilia distributor that filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. The auctioneers are checking whether they can legally sell the letters.

"Of course, under our license, we can't do anything that's against the law," Randy Kincaid told the paper. "But we feel quite certain that [the box of fan mail addressed to Sapp] is legitimately owned by the party we got it from."

Kenny Lindsay, president of American Eagle Auction & Appraisal Co. in Livonia, Mich., looked at the inventory.

"It's a bittersweet find simply because you feel bad for the fans who took the time to write Mr. Sapp and got nothing in return," Lindsay told the Tribune. "On the other hand, this is a spectacular and one-of-a-kind collection for the sports memorabilia enthusiast.

"It took me a minute to comprehend exactly what I was looking at," Kincaid added. "... All the mail is dated from 2001, when Sapp played with the Bucs."

Why whould anyone want fan mail?It's not like the letters were from Sapp,they were to him,meaning some kid in Iowa with nothing better to do wrote it,making the letter completely worthless to anyone other than the kid himself!

Did Warren touch the mail?

Did his body rub up against the mail?

Is one of Warrens body hair stuck on the corner of the envelope?

I looooove Warren Sapp. He is my daddy...oops i mean favorite...

I think that's really bad. I mean, if the kids who wrote to him find out that he never touched the letter and it was auctioned off, that would make them very sad. Warren doesn't have to reply to all of them, but he could at least read them and smile before they are sent away. I'll even buy them and mail them back to the kids.
