    I happen to know Lou and have had the privilege of seeing the collection. It is evident that he enjoys collecting quality “Air” cards. It was a joy to listen to this interview and get more insight into what motivates him. I find it hard to believe that there would be no other Jordan collectors out there who wouldn’t love to have a solid reference book on quality investment level cards. I just might even buy a copy even though I am not a collector.

    Really enjoyed listening in on that interview, Lou sounds like a cool guy. As a matter of course, I dabble in Jordan collection, and I think it’s cool how precise he is in his ‘pursuit of collection’.

    Does anyone know what Beckett Magazine the pictures of Lou and his collection seen in the video are from? I bought the July/August Basketball and all that they show are the 12 Jordans he selected for the article.

    It’s from our Michael Jordan tribute issue that came out about a year ago. It might be available at

    I have a 28″ x 6′ standup cardboard promo poster of Michael Jordan that was part of a Cologne department display at Younkers department store some 13 years ago. I’m trying to find someone who can tell me what it might be worth. Anyone interested can contact me at the above e-mail address. Thanks for your help.

    Hi, I have a 95/96 season Autographed Team Picture, that by all my research, this is the only one that is autographed by the whole Chicago Bulls Team. Email me for pictures if interested thanks.
