Celtics on eBay: Tommy Heinsohn’s Hall of Fame thoughts

Yup, it’s time to take you into the weekend with the fifth edition of Celtics on eBay. Basically we ask, “Would you pay [a pretty penny] for [current or former member of the Celtics]’ [eBay item]?” Confusing enough? Good. Let’€™s get started.

Last week was the first item I even would have considered buying, but this week is the first item I’ve actually bid on. For real. I just bid 20 bucks for Tommy Heinsohn‘s handwritten thoughts on his enshrinement day in 1986 at the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. Now, I know what you’re thinking. Twenty dollars is a lot of money. Where does a WEEI.com blogger get that kind of coin? Well, I had to save up months for it, Ok. Go ahead and try to out-bid me.

If you can’t read what Heinsohn wrote, believe it or not he actually doesn’t mention a single referee’s missed call:

“My career in basketball taught me one thing. Glory is not what it’s all about, but rather the mastering of one’s self in all ways to meet a challenge. The only recognition needed is by one’s own understanding of what they’re doing or what they would do better.

“Yes it was nice to be selected as a Hall of Famer but it was not the cap off of a career that justified my efforts. That was achieved years before when I learned how to focus who I am on what I worked at and liked.”

Signed: “Tom Heinsohn”

 That deserves like a thousand Tommy Points, right? Oh, yeah, and it’s his 77th birthday. You’ve got to be kidding me!!!

Would you pay $19.99 for Tommy Heinsohn's handwritten thoughts from his 1986 Hall of Fame enshrinement?
