PHILLY SPORTS FANS who collect memorabilia will want to check out goldinauctions.com for a chance to bid on a slew of items including a Harley-Davidson owned by former Flyer Dave "The Hammer" Schultz.

As of Monday night, the highest bid for the motorcycle was $10,000.

There are over 1,300 items in the auction, and more than 50 of those have a Philly connection. Among the more interesting is the document that banned Pete Rose from baseball ($146,410), a hockey mask signed by former Flyers goalie Bernie Parent ($2,659) - the old-school kind like the one Jason wore in "Friday the 13th" - and a pool table signed by slugger Ryan Howard that features a Phillies insignia in the center of it ($2,500).

There are also sparring gloves signed by the late-great Joe Frazier ($605), a 1980 Phillies World Series ring owned by former batboy John Bush, and a game-used helmet worn by NFL Hall of Famer Norm Van Brocklin when he played with the Rams ($10,000). The Dutchman, of course, played his final three NFL seasons (1958-60) with the Eagles.

The online auction closes this Saturday.

No fan of Jets' fans

The New York Jets, like the Eagles, are 3-6.

And, like Eagles fans, Jets supporters are getting restless.

Many, in fact, are calling for Tim Tebow to take over for Mark Sanchez as the team's starting quarterback.

Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie disagrees with those fans. Strongly.

And he has a message for them.

"They can kiss my butt," Cromartie told the New York Post. "Mark is our quarterback. At the end of the day, we could give a damn what anybody on the outside has to say. Mark is our quarterback and he's going to continue to be our quarterback. There's not going to be no division, talking about who needs to be our quarterback. Mark is our quarterback and he's our only quarterback."
