McNamee has 50 to 60 signed pieces of memorabilia - photos, baseballs, hats and jerseys - given to him by Roger Clemens, his former client. Clemens has spent the last three months assailing his character - basically since McNamee stated in the Mitchell Report that he injected Clemens with performance-enhancing drugs.
Six weeks after his nationally televised congressional showdown with Clemens, McNamee has turned over the entire collection to Phil Castinetti, owner of Sportsworld in Saugus, Mass., one of the biggest sports-memorabilia dealers in New England.
But this isn't just any Clemens schwag. It has value added:
At Castinetti's suggestion, McNamee added his own signature next to Clemens' on most of the items being sold.
Given the candor and integrity of both of these guys I hope the stuff comes with a certificate of authenticity.
