Make me an offer for 500 poker chips

The story ...

Last summer, I won sixty cents in a free poker tournament at I planned on playing until I lost it all, but decided not to take U.S. players for real-money games when Congress passed the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act. I cashed out and asked my readers what I should do with my sixty-cent check. One suggested I try to trade it for something better. So here I am, trying turn my sixty-cent check into a World Series of Poker Main Event entry through a series of trades. And while my plan may seem ridiculous, it's no more ridiculous than the UIGEA.

Currently available

Limited edition Super Bowl XXXVI football signed by former New England Patriots kicker Adam Vinatieri.

Got the ball ... now let's get to trading!

It took a few days to work out the logistics, but I finally got together with Josh DiPietro to make my latest trade: Two pieces of Jimi Hendrix’s childhood home for a limited edition Super Bowl XXXVI football signed by the hero of the game, former New England Patriots field goal kicker Adam Vinatieri.

I met Josh at his office, the Herb Chambers Dodge dealership in Danvers, Mass. We tried to connect for at least three or four days unsuccessfully. My in laws were in town on Saturday. And Josh was in Rhode Island with his family on Sunday, celebrating Father’s Day by visiting his father’s grave.

If you haven’t read my previous post about this trade, Josh’s father was a huge Jimi Hendrix fan. Unfortunately he died five years ago in a boating accident. Josh’s father wasn’t able to meet Josh’s children, including his son, who is on the way.

Josh made the trade because he wants to give the memento to his son.

So now I have a limited edition Super Bowl XXXVI Adam Vinatieri signed football available for trade. You will get a certificate of authenticity with the football, and Josh was even nice enough to throw in an autographed picture of Patriots safety Rodney Harrison.

The WSOP is less than three weeks away, so let’s hear those trade offers. You can send them to me at .
