I happen to have a pair of white / purple kiddie skis that Ty Oppenlander learned to ski on.

Think they're worth anything? :P *I have no idea the current status of ty's water skiing career... so sorry if he's not pro or w/e*

ha ha... um.

You mean are they worth money as a collectors item?

Maybe if you find some ladies who really like Ty... Alot.

I think if you asked him he'd be inclined to pass them on for free to a new youth, or keep them around to teach many more children to ski on.

Instead of seeing how much ebay would pay for a pair of used childred skis.
