At last, the perfect Father's Day gift. Assuming it's the real deal -- and there are copious references to a "Letter of Grading and Authenticity" -- one of Tom Landry's fedoras is currently up for grabs on eBay, courtesy a San Antonio-based seller who's not sure whether he ever wore the thing whilst stylishly stalking the Texas Stadium sidelines. Regardless, it was manufactured by Churchill Ltd. specifically for Landry -- says so inside the topper, right next to the coach's signature. No one's bid on the item, with the auction wrapping up Sunday. It's currently sitting at $1,200, though it can be yours for right now for the low, low price of $2,000. --Robert Wilonsky
