A fan takes pictures of the San Francisco Giants celebrating after Game 5 of the World Series against the Texas Rangers on Monday.

Edgar Rentiera needs a new bat. Aubrey Huff needs a new shoe. Arlington Stadium needs more dirt around the pitcher’s mound.

After the San Francisco Giants’ title-clinching win Monday, the Baseball Hall of Fame says it has acquired nearly a dozen artifacts that will be on display by Thanksgiving in their “Autumn Glory” exhibit, which documents baseball’s postseason.

The stuff the Hall got:

Maybe they’ll include this week’s cover of Sports Illustrated, which turned it around from Monday night’s game into the lead item in the magazine that comes out Wednesday:
