Do you want to buy Wayne Gretzky’s sweaty things? NOW YOU CAN.
The man behind the biggest collection of all things No. 99 is selling his prized memorabilia.
Insurance is a big reason. Collections such as Chaulk’s are hard to buy coverage for and the thought of a fire makes him blanch. Also, he’s already got most of the main Gretzky items likely to come on the market, so the thrill of the chase is getting rarer.

FACE, MEET FENCE
“I would rather him not go all-out into the wall.”
— Nationals third baseman Ryan Zimmerman on Bryce Harper’s tenacity that often gets him into trouble. Harper violently collided with the outfield wall at Dodger Stadium on Monday night. He didn’t end up with a concussion, but received 11 stitches.
This is not the first time Harper has done battle with that particular wall. In only his second career game last year, hurt his back trying to make a catch after hitting the fence. (Photos: Stephen Dunn/Getty Images)
