Nearing the two-week mark since the 2011 National Sports Collectors Convention came to a close, I’m going through a withdrawal period … and I don’t think I’m alone here.
Reliving the experience through the “Voices from the Show” video series, I felt it would be selfish to hoard an extended National narrative — one final fix until next year — on my hard drive. Better yet, it’s something more meaningful than bonus footage.
Armed with a camera, and probably to the annoyance of many attendees, I prodded fellow show-goers with one simple question — What do you collect?
And I couldn’t be happier with each and every reaction.
Each response — spanning sports, players, generations and genres — adds to the rhythm of the hobby’s heartbeat. This is but a mere glimpse at what motivates the hobby core.
