After more than eighty years of business, Sports Authority is shuttering its more than 450 store locations across the United States. According to the LA Times, the chain was unable to secure a buyer after it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy this past March. The retail giant was one of the largest sporting goods stores in the country, owning stores in 41 states and Puerto Rico. According to reports, liquidation sales are set to start up this Memorial Day weekend.

Here's a few items we're hoping will be up for grabs.
