We’re not sure if Jose Canseco’s family is funneling memorabilia to dealers to get cash for the disgraced slugger who recently filed for bankruptcy. It just seems odd that an eBay seller is claiming this 1997 A’s Booster Club banner came from Canseco’s sister and that “Jose treasured this for many years.” Yes, very strange. Jose would spend the ’97 season in Oakland and have 122Ks in 108 games. At only $500 on eBay, how do you not buy this thing? JUMP!
Top-rated eBay seller tampabay-cards has this to say about his prized possession:
When Jose Canseco came back to the Oakland A’s in 1997 the booster club had a approximately 3 foot by 10 foot large banner made “WELCOME BACK JOSE” this hung in the locker room and was signed by his fans. The item comes with a letter of authenticity from Jose’s sister Teresa who I have sold items for in the past. I was told that Jose treasured this for many years and hung this in his residence. The item has the metal rings for hanging and displays awesome.
The certificate of authenticity from Teresa is rather sad, no? If we connect the dots with this piece, a few things add up. Teresa and her husband bought a Tampa residence from Jose way back in 2004. It’s just a hunch that Jose left the banner in the garage.
This is the conversation piece your basement bar has been lacking all this time!
