It’s Not Crazy, It’s Sports: ‘Being Mr. Met’

It’s Not Crazy, It’s Sports: ‘Chrome’

It’s Not Crazy, It’s Sports: ‘Most Valuable Whatever’

How much would you pay for Ty Cobb’s dentures in an auction? Errol Morris’s final short for ESPN Films takes a look at the stranger side of sports memorabilia collecting with perspective from three very, very dedicated fans.

What would possess someone to pay $8,000 for Ty Cobb’s dentures? Or $5,300 for the toilet that the Toronto Maple Leafs sat on? Or $820 for the butt fumble jersey? Well, Errol Morris finds out in this film about collectors of unusual sports objects. In the case of the jersey worn by Mark Sanchez when he fumbled the ball after running into his own lineman, a Jets fan just wanted to make sure the memorabilia wouldn’t end up in the wrong hands — a New England sports bar. 

Today concludes the It’s Not Crazy, It’s Sports short-film series and Grantland’s Errol Morris Week.
