CINCINNATI - Two no-hitters in 10 months means everybody wants a piece of Homer Bailey.
As a result of Bailey's recent success, his memorabilia is more desirable than it was a few years ago.
9 On Your Side's Natasha Williams spoke with local memorabilia dealer Steve Wolter to find out just how much your "Homer Stuff" is worth.
Wolter said an autographed ball is worth about $100. A picture of Bailey with his signature is worth around $75. Both of those prices went up by about $25 after Tuesday night's performance.
He says if Bailey continues to impress this season, your memorabilia will be worth even more.
However, while all Bailey-centric memorabilia is considerably more valuable than it was a few years ago, the most valuable items are not likely to be sold.
"What would be of significant value would be the jersey he wore last night. My guess is [Bailey] is going to keep that," Wolter said.
He said that if he doesn't keep it as a personal memento, he's going to share it with a museum, perhaps the Reds Hall of Fame or the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y.
"He would probably send something to Cooperstown...Generally they will send the cap they were wearing or the spikes or maybe the glove."
Do you have any special Homer Bailey keepsakes? Do you plan to sell them to a sports collector while the market is hot, hold on to them in the hopes their value will continue to go up or put them on display in your home?
