1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    These would be cool to own if I were an 11...they look like they're in decent condition


    Why does the size matter? I would assume that any purchaser will probably display them, not wear them.

    Hey if I bought Joltin' Joe's shoes, I would want to walk in them. I don't think I'm a big enough fan of him (or anyone) to have their old shoes be a decoration.

    I do not recall Joe playing the field in dress shoes.

    yeah, if they were indeed "game worn" it'd prolly have to be one he spent in the pressbox... assuming they HAD pressboxes back then. Now if somebody can come up with a pair of Cal Ripkin's game worn Allen Edmonds, then we have a real rarity on our hands.

    Be forewarned that these shoes will have an effect on the wearer not unlike Dorothy's ruby slippers. However, where Dorothy's shoes conferred protection against the evil of witches, these will cause the wearer a profound and lifelong resentment against the Kennedy family.

    Didn't he have a beef with Sinatra as well, because Frank was doing Marilyn on the side?
