would be the first to spot the “symbolism.”
Check out his awesome collection
Why, or why not?
I asked him about one practice that might shock some collectors. He takes pictures of minor leaguers who agree to pose. Then, he sends two copies and a SASE, in hopes that he’ll get one photo back autographed.
He doesn’t sell the photos to players or trade? Nope. I asked if he’s still sticking to his hobby plan for 2014. I’m grateful for the following reply:
“I donated a stack of about 60 [Burlington] Bees pictures to the Bees winter auction/fundraiser this year. About half of them were signed. I figured they’d bring in a decent price and was surprised when I didn’t see them on the auction table. The Bees GM told me when I asked that they wanted to keep them for the team archives. I felt good about it, that they appreciated them that much.
Thanks, Rich. It’s nice to see a baseball fan who thinks of what he’s giving, not just what he’s getting.
