A look at some of the most interesting sales on the sports auction block

This glorious picture above was once an item up for auction on eBay. The taxidermy squirrels were posed as two AHL hockey players in an epic fight. The price tag for this piece of art? $600 (plus shipping). After the item went viral, it sold within 24 hours.

How much would you be willing to pay for a piece of sporting history? $10,000? Maybe a million? Plenty of fans and some serious collectors are always willing to splash some cash to buy valuable sports memorabilia ranging from game-worn hockey sweaters to rare trading cards. Wondering why anyone would pay a small fortune for such things? Sometimes, as with a piece of art, an iconic item of sports memorabilia is a sound investment that's almost sure to appreciate in value. Here's a look at some of the most interesting sales on the sports auction block.
