Its curious that in disc golf the new disc might be more collectible when in other sports the used memorabilia is always worth more. I would rather have the extremely beaten in disc personally, the more beaten and barely recognizable the better, to me this shows that it meant some thing to the pro and wasn't just a piece of plastic that there sponsor had given them to hand out as a PR thing.
i would like to collect disc that had the pro's signature on them. I would hope that there would be no one out there that would throw a signature on a disc and write it of as a pro's signature it isnt the disc golf way.
Either would be fine by me.....depends on how I acquire the disc. To me it is all about the memory of meeting the pro, the disc is just a reminder/keepsake.
I have the winning worlds '08 raffle DGA rogue (it won me a set of 18 sunburst orange Mach III baskets) with raffle ticket still attached. Went around with my four year old son (at oshtemo and timber ridge)and had him get a lot of the top pros to sign the winning disc. Everyone was so gracious and kind to Ethan and we had an unforgettable experience. That disc has a ton value to me, but doubt that it would fetch much on ebay. got it signed by Feldberg, Schultz, Avery and Valerie Jenkins, Climo, Doss, Orum, Geoff Bennett, Lundmark, Leviska, Mike Randolph, Mike Johanssen on the final Saturday in K-zoo. Those memories will treasured by Ethan and me forever!!!!!
