So, let's say Jack Ruby's hat doesn't do it for you. Fine. In that case, Heritage Auction Galleries has another option for your noggin: one of Tom Landry's old fedoras, this one circa 1980-something. Heritage's Noah Fleisher sends word that the trademark hat'll be amongst a handful of Dallas Cowboys items up grabs in the auction house's October Signature Sports Memorabilia Auction. At the moment, it's currently sitting at the $650 mark, but it'll no doubt go for a few dollars more; it's guesstimated to be worth a few thou. Clearly, it's traded hands before -- Landry wrote "Best Wishes, Tom Landry" in the headband -- though it is possible he just liked to leave himself secret inspirational messages.
