An inflatable (yes, you read that right) coffee table that I have not had the guts to put up yet. Will do it if we make it to NOLA though, for the party. Got it for $5 from a store in this area notorious for carrying closeout stuff dirt cheap. They were recently selling full-size Fatheads (no, there weren't any 'Hawks) for $9.

Second Choice: Official sideline hat from 2011, handed over by an equipment guy. My cousin is a sheriff's deputy here and managed to get on the detail that escorts visiting teams. He always gets swag like that just for the asking.

When my brother in law lived in S. Korea a few years back and sent me this old knock off Largent Jersey. It's pretty cool.

When I moved from the NW to Florida one of my employees bought me a collectors set of Seahawks Jones Soda with flavors like perspiration, field turf, and sweet victory. Supposedly they taste like they say they do. I still have it unopened in it's shrink wrap sitting on my shelf at work.

I've got an ooooold school Seahawks pencil, from when they had the set in the team colors with just the name printed on it with a little plain helmet. Still in mint condition. I also have a little gumball machine helmet that fits perfectly on a Mario I got out of a Wendy's kids meal, so I may have the only Seahawks Mario on earth. Then I also have the blue shiny jacket like Chick Harris used to wear on the sideline. A sign that says "Seahawks Blvd" that goes in front of my house, and to top it all off... a signed Jon Kitna classic mini helmet and a signed Shaun Alexander silver mini helmet as well.

My brother has these old school Seahawks football cards that the cops gave him. They used to hand them out on neighborhood patrol. He saw them and started running and they chased him in the car and asked him why he was running. He said, "Because you're the cops!" They asked what he'd done wrong, and he goes, "Nothing. I just figured I saw you so I better run." They started laughing and gave him a Zorn, a Largent, and I think somebody like Sam McCullum. It was pretty funny. Me seeing my brother getting a talking to by the fuzz and walking away with some sweet Seahawks Swag.

Nice - my brother got me a pair of those for Christmas last year and O YEA are they comfortable.

But since Yakimaniac said it first I'll throw out a few more random things I've found:

1. Inflatable Seahawks helmet (hilarious looking, has original logo, bought at Husky Stadium 2001 when Dilfer beat the Jaguars)
2. Pee Wee league-size white helmet w/Seahawks logo - a co-worker's son played kids' football and his team was named the "Seahawks" so he brought me the helmet once outgrown (he was a Packers fan)
3. Postcard from Steve Largent (not a handwritten note but a mass-produced item - has him in action on the front and basically a Xeroxed message and Bible quote on the back)
4. The full 1986 (I think?) Fleer Seahawks team football card set, which I won in a Fleer contest to see who could write the best team cheer (I know...)
5. A Christmas tree ornament of Santa wearing a Seahawks shirt and hat, reclining on a lounge chair (one leg broken off)

I still give the award to Karavarus for that story - now that is a keeper!

cheers /td

Eeeeeeeeew.

Mine is a onesie. I don't wear it, though. Little dude to the left wears it every game day. Except he has pretty much outgrown it. I hope he can squeeze into it through the end of the season (Superbowl?!?).

My brother gave me these a few years back and I had to check them out - can vouch that some indeed taste like their namesakes. Well, "Field Turf" and a couple others tasted like nothing but colored water, but "Perspiration" was salt water and "Sweet Victory" was blue sugar water. I kept the bottles of Hass and Jones (Branch, not so much...) plus the mini 12 flag that came with them.

I had a circa '77 Steve Largent tee that i wore so much it just fell off my shoulders one day, loved that tee. It got a U.S. flag send off.

Now i sport an older AFC 'Hawks sweatshirt. Certain to have the same demise.

I have a Seahawks game program that was signed by Ben Franklin and Cleopatra.

I'm saving it for my boys.

I've got that too. That company, Costacos Brothers, put out the best posters. I also have ones from Largent (Blue Angel, Honorably Discharged), Easley (The Enforcer), and Warner (Blade Runner).

They replayed that on NFL Network the week prior to SBXL.

I have a pint glass signed by Rufus Porter.

I also have a full set of the NFL team pencils, circa 1977 or so, with now-defunct/moved teams like the Baltimore Colts, Houston Oilers, St Louis Cardinals, LA Rams. Of course, being a Seahawks fan and little kid I actually sharpened and used the Hawks one, so there's not much left of it. But the rest are unsharpened.

I have a few uncut sheets of the Seattle police Seahawks trading cards, circa 1989.

The oddest thing I have is not Seahawks related, but it is very odd... a Qadry Ismail signed oven mitt.

Wasn't he on the same boat as the dude that killed Moby Dick?
