The Tarp That Ate The Cardinals ... On Sale!

St. Louis Cardinals, still reeling from the magical season of 1985 that just missed ending in a World Series win, might not want to hear about this, but you never know: Maybe they'll want to burn it. As the final year of St. Louis' Busch Stadium draws to a close, the Birds are auctioning off some old crap they had lying around. Included in that? The actual tarp that ran over then-Cards outfielder Vince Coleman, forcing the Rookie of the Year to miss the rest of the playoffs. The only thing better would be if they were somehow to procure one of Don Denkinger's testicles. That might sell for more.
