The Weekender

Vintage Footballs, Erotic Coffee-Table Books and Madonna

The weekend has a mild case of turkey elbow.

A Huge Auction of Rock Star Things
ROCK CITY

A Huge Auction of Rock Star Things

The negatives from Madonna’s Penthouse shoot. Sinatra’s herringbone button-down. A Bigsby guitar signed by the Cult. These are all things you’re about to own. After you bid on them (or, like, hundreds of other things) at Julien’s largest online rock memorabilia auction of the year, that is. But then, all yours.

Erotic Photography. Carry On.

Erotic Photography. Carry On.

It’s an Antique Football. Have At It.
HAVE A BALL

It’s an Antique Football. Have At It.

Once upon a time, the forward pass didn’t exist in football. Which is hilarious. Because picture it. Then Knute Rockne came along and made it all acceptable. Anyway, now you can get a replica of the same antique, hand-sewn watermelon football he threw back in the day. Horrifyingly ineffective helmet optional.
