Correa puts up items for sale

Carlos Correa has put up several of his personal items as being listed for sale recently. This collection comprises almost his entire collection of game-used Astros memorabilia. And while the collection may be much larger, it will include various big ticket items like his World Series Game 6 Jersey from 2021, the used jersey from Game 7 of ALCS 2017  and several used bats and cleats from crunch games.

Astros fans seem to be asking the question as to why Correa is selling off such valuable items right now?  Especially in the middle of the off-season with definition to his future. But Correa has long been a smart operator and has usually auctioned off his items privately and quickly. The Twitterati theorized that this might finally be a liquidation of his years in Houston.

And in more sad news for Astros fans, these items are not yet listed on the open market for general purchasers. According to Twitter users, the items have been placed for sale to a private individual collector.
