Casino City reporter obtains signed Super Bowl football in quest for WSOP seat

20 Jun 2007

NEWTON, Mass. (PRESS RELEASE) – Aaron Todd has made his fourth exchange in his quest to trade his way from a sixty-cent check to an entry in the World Series of Poker, trading two small pieces of a house that Jimi Hendrix lived in from ages 10-13 for a limited edition Super Bowl XXXVI football signed by Adam Vinatieri.

Josh DiPietro, a sales manager for Herb Chambers Dodge in Danvers, Mass., wanted the pieces of the house as a gift to his unborn son. His father was a big Jimi Hendrix fan, but unfortunately, he never got to meet his grandchildren (Josh also has an 18-month old daughter). He died in a boating accident five years ago.

"I just thought it would be something he'd love to have," Josh said. "Thinking of some of his songs brings me back to some of the good days and good memories."

The story was too compelling for Aaron to ignore.

"At first I was a little hesitant to trade for a piece of sports memorabilia, because I had done that before," Aaron said. "But after hearing Josh explain why he wants the items, I don't think there's a better trade I could make."

Josh and Aaron met on Tuesday to complete the trade.

Vinatieri, who made a number of memorable field goals for the New England Patriots, kicked the game-winning field goal Super Bowl XXXVI as time expired.

Aaron's eventual goal is to trade for a seat in the Main Event of the World Series of Poker, which begins on July 6.

Todd's quest for the WSOP began when he won sixty cents in a free Internet poker tournament on He planned to play with his sixty cents until he either made $100 or lost it all, but decided not to allow U.S. customers to play for real money after the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act passed in late September.

PKR sent him a check for his winnings and he decided that rather than cash the check, he should trade it. He plans to keep making trades until someone offers to trade him a seat in the Main Event of the World Series of Poker.
